How many of these country star tryouts do you remember from American Idol?
Let’s take a look at some of the auditions from country artists who made it onto the show.
Gabby Barrett wasn’t cutting it with the judges until she sang a gospel song.
Lauren Alaina’s audition was the best the judges had seen that day in Nashville.
Scotty McCreery impressed the judges by singing Josh Turner’s “Your Man” and Travis Tritt’s “Put Some Drive in Your Country.”
Carrie Underwood, of course, not only won over the judges during her season, but the voting audience as well.
Not every current country star who auditioned made it through though. Maren Morris, Kane Brown, Hilary Scott and Jimmie Allen were all rejected.
Along with Chris Lane and his twin brother Corey, who tried out as a rap duo in 2007. During their audition, the brothers told an awkward story about having the same girlfriend.
Chris and Cory explain they have the same car, same friends, and same girlfriend. Well, same girlfriend, different time. Chris and Ashley first started dating, but then she and Cory started talking and had been dating for a year.
Chris may not have made it on the show, but he’s doing well now and happily married to Lauren Bushnell. The couple welcomed their first child, Dudley into the world this year.
