It's true! We can now confirm that Brad Paisley will be a judge on Rising Star -- a new talent competition on ABC.

He'll join pop star Kesha and rapper Ludacris as judges. Josh Grobin will host. The show, which premieres June 22nd, will be live and include interactive fan voting.

Though reality competitions have been sputtering lately, ABC hopes the interactive element and the Sunday night slot will lift the show.
