What Are the Country ‘American Idol’ Alumni Doing Now?

The American Idol judges saw plenty of country singers audition and make their way into the pool of finalists throughout the years. Have you ever wondered what happened to some of them?

Of course, we’re all still keeping tabs on Idol‘s biggest country stars, such as Carrie Underwood, who was the highest-earning Idol alum in 2014, Scotty McCreery and Kellie Pickler, but what about some of the contestants that we haven’t heard from in a while? After doing some digging, we discovered that many former Idol country contestants have albums currently in the works or had success with recent releases. And some have been enjoying time at home, out of the spotlight, and welcoming new members into their families!

Click through the gallery above to learn more about what Josh Gracin, Casey James, Bucky Covington, Kree Harrison and more former Idols are doing now.
