Jimmy Smith, 25, from Waynesboro TN performed “God Bless the Broken Road” by Rascal Flatts on American Idol Season 12 Charlotte audition. He got a huge, pure, but clear voice.
According to the judges:
“It’s got the sweetness I need to hear from my country singers.” Keith Urban said, “I can tell who you are from your tone.” Mariah Carey called him incredible and unique. It’s 4 yeses, of course. “Yep,” said Mariah in her best hillbilly voice.”
Did he make it to American Idol Season 12 Top 40? (spoiler here).
