ET's Sophie Schillaci caught up with the "Does He Love You" singer on the red carpet at the Academy of Country Music Honors at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, on Wednesday, where she admitted that she doesn't really have the right temperament to be a judge.
"If anybody was bad, I don't think I could say, 'You were bad,' or, 'Honey, go get you a day job,'" McEntire said. "I would definitely not be a Simon [Cowell]."
Regarding network conversations about bringing the show back, McEntire said, "There have been some in the past and hopefully some in the future too. We'd love to do it."
At the ACM Honors, McEntire was the evening's first honoree, receiving the Mar Boren Axton Award. Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott and Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman joined up to pay tribute to the celebrated singer with a medley performance of some of her biggest hits.
