Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are upset with Eric Church over comments made during a Rolling Stone magazine interview.  Church took aim at reality TV singing competitions.  “The Voice” features Blake Shelton so this could cause uproar.  Church said, “it’s become American Idol gone mad. Honestly, if ["The Voice" coaches] Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green f—ing turn around in a red chair, you get a deal? That’s crazy. I don’t know what would make an artist do that. You’re not an artist.”

Miranda Lambert got a start on the show “Nashville Star.”  Lambert tweeted, “Thanks Eric Church for saying I’m not a real artist. Or @kelly_clarkson, @carrieunderwood & @KeithUrban. Your welcome for the tour in 2010.”

Church said, “If I was concerned about my legacy, there’s no f—ing way I would ever sit there [and be a reality-show judge]. Once your career becomes something other than the music, then that’s what it is. I’ll never make that mistake. I don’t care if I f—ing starve.”
