Before entering the audition room of American Idol, Trent Harmon spoke with Ryan Seacrest about his life on a farm. The 24-year-old is busy at work tending to the hundreds of cows and the family’s restaurant, the Longhorn, which is right there on the farm. One would expect Harmon to be the next greatest country superstar, but we are all in for a surprise.
At the American Idol auditions in Little Rock, Arkansas, the farmer wowed judges with a pitch-perfect R&B performance. His rendition of Allen Stone’s “Unaware” blew Jennifer Lopez’s mind and earned himself a ticket to Hollywood. Harry Connick Jr. told the young talent that he was the best audition thus far.
Humbled, Harmon was shocked by the praise he received from the celebrity judges, and I am guessing that is what happens after cows have been an audience for a lifetime. Though it’s pretty early to predict the finalists, it seems that Harmon has a good chance of going all of the way. Not only is the Mississippi native’s voice amazing, but he may possibly be the only farm boy who can sing R&B like that!
If you are as blown away as we were, please SHARE the love, pass it on.
