She tells CountryWeekly.com, "I've always been somewhat skeptical of the music reality competition shows and think that's because I came up through the ranks in a certain way. I came up through the club scene and was running around the country in a 15-passenger van with five smelly guys, schlepping my own gear. I really paid my dues that way. Television has, at least currently, proven itself to be a legitimate inroad to the industry."
Glad she's doing it! I think she's representing country music well!
