From former producers of American Idol and The Voice, another singing competition tv show is on the way… And guess who’s rumored to be the first judge? None other than Brad Paisley. Paisley has reportedly signed on to judge ABC’s new talent show, ‘Rising Star’. Wouldn’t it be interesting if he got pal Carrie Underwood, who got her start by winning American Idol, to come along as a judge or mentor on the project? And with Paisley’s hilarious sense of humor — He may just give Blake Shelton a run for his money as America’s favorite TV judge! ABC plans to debut the new show some time this summer… In the meantime, you can can catch Brad Paisley in concert at the Susquehanna Bank Center on May 16th.
