Rumors have been spreading like wildfire that Brad Paisley may be joining the judge’s panel on American Idol. If the gossip is true, Brad has support from former Idol contestant Lauren Alaina, who believes he¿d be perfect for the gig! “I think that would be really cool. He has a great personality and every time I¿ve talked with him he¿s been super nice. He is really cool. I think that would be a good move for the show.” Lauren¿s new single ¿18 Inches¿ has a connection to American Idol, as it was co-written by Season 5 winner Carrie Underwood.
