Jeopardy! Country Edition Discussion

Stars from Law & Order on Jeopardy!
So I was surfing wikipedia after watching an episode of Law & Order: SVU, and I followed a link to “Celebrity Jeopardy!” Looking through the total list of contestants over the years, I spotted some country stars, namely Kathy Mattea (Who won her game in 1994), Naomi Judd (1998), and Brad Paisley (2003). As a huge Jeopardy fan (I hope to be on the show one day, I’m very good at getting the answers), I pose this question:
Which current country stars do you think would do well? Who would do badly? Who would you want to see face off in a trivia showdown?
For the obvious answers, Kellie Pickler would surely lose, if Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader is any proof, and most mainstream male acts seem unintelligent (at least not in the kind of trivia knowledge required for Jeopardy). On the other side, I think Jennifer Nettles would be interesting to watch, but I’m biased since I love Sugarland so much. I think she seems smart, but with celebrities it’s so hard to know…
I would like to see Natalie Maines and Toby Keith face off. They both seem fairly knowledgeable, but they could finally settle that unresolved dispute, and we would finally know who is better! (I vote Natalie…) I bet it would get very heated though, to say the least.
Another suggestion? Pit the members of groups against each other! See which Rascal Flatts member is the smartest? Or have Kathy Mattea come back and whoop them all? Who knows!
So what do you guys think?
