Carrie Says American Idol Should Have a Country Judge

“I’m excited like everyone else to see who it’s going to be,” Carrie tells reporters.

Just look at the 2011 season.

Country singer Scotty McCreery won American Idol, and country singer Lauren Alaina finished second.

So, American Idol winner Carrie Underwood says, there should be a country star on the show's judges panel.

"It makes sense," Carrie told reporters recently.

"There's obviously a want for it from the American Idol-watching audience, 'cause that's who they're voting for. So, it makes sense that they would have somebody that they know and love in as a judge," she said.

Keith Urban and Brad Paisley are the names that have come up the most as candidates.

And Carrie calls those "solid names."

"So I'm excited like everyone else to see who it's going to be," she said.

Of course, the original Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson, says Carrie ought to be the country judge. But Carrie didn't have anything to say about that solid name.
