Eric Church SLAMS Blake Shelton, The Voice and Idol!
This post contains some adult language.....you've been warned! lol
It has become very clear after an interview in Rolling Stone magazine that Eric Church has NO love for music competition reality shows including those that participiate, host or judge them! Eric takes a hit against American Idol and reality show television, saying that the country music industry is filled with talent from reality competitions – saying that trying out for a show like The Voice means you aren’t a true artist.

When asked what he thought about NBCs 'The Voice' Eric says:
“It’s become American Idol gone mad. Honestly, if Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green f—ing turn around in a red chair, you get a deal? That’s crazy. I don’t know what would make an artist do that. You’re not an artist.”
Eric had more to say, taking a jab at one of the stars of 'The Voice' and one of the hottest acts in country music right now Blake Shelton...
“If I was concerned about my legacy, there’s no f—ing way I would ever sit there [and be a reality-show judge]. Once your career becomes something other than the music, then that’s what it is. I’ll never make that mistake. I don’t care if I f—ing starve.”
It doesn't appear that Eric Church will be invited out on tour with Blake Shelton (or Miranda Lambert for that matter) any time soon. Blake saw the interview on a website and recently tweeted: “@: Eric Church slams Blake Shelton, @, in his interview: fb.me/1IjOR0jgE” I wish I misunderstood this...
