Might American Idol be going a little country on Season 12?
Like Carey, Paisley possesses one of the most impressive resumes in the recording industry.
He's set a record with 10 consecutive singles hitting number-one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs and won the Entertainer of the Year award at the 44th annual CMA Awards in 2010.
But is he the right demographic for Idol? Would he fit in well with Carey and, assuming he sticks around, with third judge Randy Jackson? You tell us: Do you wanna see Brad Paisley on American Idol?
