Whether we admit it or not, we’re all a little bit obsessed with ABC’s The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, and it turns out that some of country’s biggest stars are no different.

Take a look at 10 of the biggest stars in country music who haven’t exactly been shy when it comes to their love of the dating series.

10. Jana Kramer

Jana Kramer is such a fan of The Bachelorette and The Bachelor that she even spent some time with former contestants Andi Dorfman and Nikki Ferell before CMA Fest 2015. Dorfman shared a snap of the girls hanging out outside Bridgestone Arena on her Instagram account in June 2015, writing “My girl @kramergirl is about to kill it #CMAFest2015 @nikki_ferrell.”

9. Kellie Pickler

Before finding love with her now husband Kyle Richards, Kellie Pickler joked that she loves The Bachelor franchise so much that she was looking to become the next Bachelorette. Pickler made the admission during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where the two were discussing the dating series, with Pickler joking, “I’m gonna be on it. I’m the new Bachelorette!”

8. Kelsea Ballerini

Kelsea Ballerini hasn’t done much to hide her love of the popular ABC dating show. “Tonight I’m going to wear a onesie and order Chinese food and binge watch @BachelorABC,” Ballerini tweeted out about watching the most recent Bachelor, Ben Higgins, find love this past January. “There is really no other option or choice,” the “Dibs” singer joked.

7. Darius Rucker

Darius Rucker has lent his talents to The Bachelor franchise, appearing alongside Desiree Hartsock for an episode of The Bachelorette in 2013. In Rucker’s episode, the “Wagon Wheel” singer treated Desiree and her date to a very special performance after the two visited Atlantic City, N.J. to view the damage left by Hurricane Sandy.

6. Billy Currington

Billy Currington loves The Bachelor so much that he even appeared on the show last year. Currington appeared on a 2014 episode of the dating series to perform a private concert for Juan Pablo Galavis and his date, Chelsie. Though they didn’t end up together, the two enjoyed renditions of Currington’s hits “Hey Girl” and “We Are Tonight”.

5. Big & Rich

While a couple of their peers have performed on the show, Big & Rich went one step further in 2015 when they actually featured in a group date during Chris Soules’ — who was famously an Iowa farmer — turn as Bachelor. The duo helped Soules find love by creating a group date in which the bachelorettes had their musical skills tested through the challenge of creating a unique love song for Soules, nicknamed Prince Farming.

4. Lucy Hale

“Lie A Little Better” singer Lucy Hale loves The Bachelor, too! The Pretty Little Liars actress took to social media last month to tweet out her Bachelor love, telling fans that she was “watching The Bachelor obviously,” alongside a photo of herself tucked up in bed.

3. Clay Walker

Another country star to make the jump from the couch to behind the camera? Clay Walker. Walker gave former Bachelor Ben Flajnik a helping hand in 2012 when he brought along one of his prospective loves to one of Walker’s concerts. The two even got pretty cozy while dancing to the hits “She Won’t Be Lonely Long” and “Like We Never Said Goodbye”.

2. Luke Bryan

Luke Bryan also took his The Bachelor love one step further when he performed on the series for Bachelorette Emily Maynard on one of her dates in 2012. Bryan played two of his biggest hits during his appearance in the series, include “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)” and the slower “Drunk On You”.

1. Thomas Rhett

It turns out Thomas Rhett is a pretty big fan of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. After previously revealing that he never misses an episode of the reality dating hit, Rhett even took to social media last year to share a shot of himself watching the show with former Bachelorette winner Shawn Booth himself. “#Thebachelorette with @Shawn_Booth and @ChrisStrandburg,” Rhett tweeted last year, “thanks mom for letting us watch at your house.”
