Could Luke Bryan Join Blake Shelton as a Singing Competition Coach?
“It would probably be something I would look into,” says Luke.
In the wake of Blake Shelton's success as a coach on NBC's The Voice, country music artists are flocking to singing competitions like never before. Jennifer Nettles will join Kelly Clarkson, Robin Thicke and Lionel Richie on ABC's Duets, scheduled to debut this summer, while John Rich will join Queen Latifah on CW's The Star Next Door. Both Reba McEntire and Miranda Lambert have appeared on The Voice as guest mentors.
With his solid country vocal, energetic onstage charisma and likable personality, could Luke Bryan be the next celebrity musical coach or guest mentor? "I never rule anything out," Luke tells CountryWeekly.com. "If I had the time and the right opportunity came along, you never know. I would always put a lot of thought in it. It would probably be something I would look into. I think [music competitions] have their place and they are great at finding talent."
Luke does have high praise for his buddy and The Voice coach Blake. "Blake does great, Blake’s totally the right personality for that," says Luke. "When you look at when country music is being represented in that capacity, he’s a great representative for country music."
