Country Singers, Reality TV: Stars Compete for Charities & Bragging Rights
While a number of country singers got their starts on competition shows, there’s a group of stars who’ve made the transition to reality TV post-fame. In 2011, John Rich won “Celebrity Apprentice” — among his numerous reality appearances — earning $250,000 for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Long before Blake Shelton was turning his chair on “The Voice,” he worked with a Oklahoma City choir on NBC’s “Clash of the Choirs.” “Dancing With the Stars,” which currently features Kellie Pickler, has seen its share of Music City’s musicians strutting their stuff on the dance floor. Then there’s also those, like Little Big Town‘s Kimberly Schlapman, who’ve helmed their own series.
