NASHVILLE, Tenn. - CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee Luke Bryan says jokingly he may be a meaner person by the time American Idol is over.
The “Huntin', Fishin' & Lovin' Every Day” singer explained to Scripps that one of his biggest challenges going into the show is finding a way to tell younger artists that it may not be their time in the spotlight yet.
Don’t look for the country superstar to take on the Simon Cowell persona. He says that with fellow judges Katy Perry and Lionel Richie also being an artist it can make it an especially tough assignment.
In addition to his CMA nomination, Bryan is preparing to kick off his “What Makes You Country” tour in February in Springfield, Missouri.
The CMA Awards air Wednesday night at 7 p.m. (CT) on ABC.
