Luke Bryan appeared on a recent episode of the Apple Music show “Party Barn Radio,” hosted by fellow country star Blake Shelton, in which they discussed, among other things, their stints on the reality TV shows “American Idol” and “The Voice,” respectively.

Bryan revealed that it was actually Shelton who pushed him to join “American Idol” as one of the judges of the show, saying that Shelton just told him to “‘Do it,'” to which he then responded with “‘Heck yeah, I’m going to do it.'”

“Man, it was like you told me,” he added. “It certainly opens your eyes, opens your world up to stuff you never can imagine. Thank you for that. The world can hear me say ‘Thank you, Blake Shelton.'”

Bryan is slated to join his fourth season on “American Idol” starting on Sunday, Feb 17 at 8/7c on ABC. Meanwhile, Shelton recently wrapped up his 19th season as a judge on “The Voice.”
