Luke Bryan is one of the sweetest guys in country music, but that hasn’t stopped him from being honest with contestants on American Idol.
Only a fraction of those who audition for the show have enough talent to move forward in the competition. Luke tries to support every contestant, but he knows his job is to find the best of the best, and that means saying “no” more often than not. He says, “Sometimes when you try to politely deliver the truth, you can sometimes sound even more rude and terrible. I’ve done that a couple times.”
Luke says he does try to always encourage people to stick with music, regardless of their talent level. (Rare Country)
