Eric Church Voice Shelton

Eric Church Voice Shelton, Things just got ugly in the country music world and it’s now playing out on Twitter.

It all started when Eric Chruch slammed reality TV music competitions in a new interview with Rolling Stone — specifically calling out contestants and judges on “The Voice.”

“Honestly, if Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green turn around in a red chair, you got a deal? That’s crazy,” Church said. “I don’t know what would make an artist do that. You’re not an artist.”

The Grammy-nominated artist said he would never be a judge on such shows as “American Idol.”

“Once your career becomes about something other than the music, then that’s what it is,” the “Springsteen” singer said. “I’ll never make that mistake. I don’t care if I starve.”

Fellow country star Miranda Lambert didn’t like what she heard. Not only is she married to Shelton, but she also has a reality TV past, finishing third on “Nashville Star” in 2003.

Lambert was referring to choosing Church as her tour’s opening act in 2010.

Shelton has also spoken up. He linked to a story on Church’s comments and added, “I wish I misunderstood this,” later adding, “Why? Just why?”

Church has since responded to the fallout in a statement, explaining, “The comment I made to Rolling Stone was part of a larger commentary on these types of reality television shows and the perception they create, not the artists involved with the shows themselves. The shows make it appear that artists can shortcut their way to success. There are a lot of artists due to their own perseverance that have gone on to be successful after appearing on these shows, but the real obstacles come after the cameras stop rolling.” (CBS News)
