Little Big Town Says Keith Urban Breaks Stereotypes on “Idol”

"I think his intelligence shows through, and I love it," says Jimi Westbrook.

The members of Little Big Town say Keith Urban's stint as judge on American Idol might be changing the way mainstream America looks at country music.

"He represents country music very well, too, because people stereotype us sometimes," Jimi Westbrook tells ABC News Radio. "I think his intelligence shows through, and I love it. I loved watching him in that moment. He's really great at it."

Jimi's wife and fellow bandmate, Karen Fairchild, agrees.

"He's more interested, you can tell, in someone being connected to what they're singing and saying and being all in it, and he gives great advice," Karen says. "Yeah, he should have been on that show a long time ago. He's great at it."
