Could Garth Brooks or Vince Gill Be the Next American Idol Judge?

American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi is hopeful for a Country star replacement to fill Simon Cowell's chair since this season will be Cowell's last as a judge on the show. DioGuardi has spent a fair ammount of time in Nashville recently, writing songs with some of the best, such as Darius Rucker and Rascal Flatts, and her appreciation for Country Music has grown.

Kara told that she would like to see a Country star fill the empty seat. "I can even see someone from the Country world, maybe a Garth Brooks or a Vince Gill. A lot of people that love Country Music tune in; they're a large part of our audience, so I think that would be an interesting flip on it."
