Since ‘American Idol‘ debuted more than a dozen years ago, reality singing competitions have become an increasingly viable way to discover new country talent. The show reigned supreme on the airwaves virtually unchallenged for years, until ‘The Voice‘ premiered in 2011. Since then, the two shows have competed fiercely to find the best new talent in country music.

Blake Shelton has been a coach on ‘The Voice’ since its inception, dominating the competition by winning three of its seasons. Keith Urban first came to ‘American Idol’ as a judge in its 12th season last year, and returned to the show for its current 13th season.
