Needless to say, it will be a BIG Sunday night for Livingston's Laine Hardy on American Idol at 7 pm on ABC (Channel 2). That's the moment he WILL move up from the Top 6 to the winner's circle. With all of the excitement of that, imagine my surprise here at the station when we had a special visit from a REAL stand-up guy-and American Idol judge-LUKE BRYAN, I must say, Luke looked good after coloring his hair (Right?) And he couldn't stop smiling about Laine Hardy. That was obvious in this Facebook live post we did on the River FB page. He just didn't sound like himself today.
One final note, Laine Hardy was asked by Billboard which song would be his "dream" song choice to perform in order to seal the Idol deal. Laine answered, "'Long Tall Sally' by Little Richard -- I am a big Little Richard fan and have been influenced by his music as an artist. I think 'Long Tall Sally' is a fun song to sing as a final song for America’s vote."
