American Idol is about to go country next week, bringing back season four winner Carrie Underwood, Randy Travis, and Brad Paisley for performances. It’s a big party on next week’s Idol…Grand Ole Opry!
This should be very interesting to see how the contestants fair with singing that genre of music. It’s either you have it or you don’t. Carrie has obviously made a great living so far in the country world, but everyone can do it!
Next week the remaining 11 contestants will have to pick songs popularized by Opry members. Carrie will take the stage (while majorly intimidating the contestants with her vocals) with Randy Travis to perform her hit single I Told You So. Randy will also be acting as a mentor for the week for the contestants.
Carrie is really excited to return to the show, saying, “I am so excited that two of my musical passions, American Idol and the Grand Ole Opry, are joining together to create a really special week of music. I am always thrilled to return to the Idol”stage, and am so proud to this time be bringing with me one of my heroes, Randy Travis. I knew the Opry first, but Idol gave me my start and helped lead me to the Opry stage. It’s a great feeling to be able to help bring these two worlds together.”
Brad Paisley will also take the stage to debut his new single Then, which will be the first time he performs it on national television.
So whether you’re a country fan, an Idol fan, or both, make sure to tune in next week March 17th and 18th!
