It's been a little over two weeks since Livingston Parish star Laine Hardy became THE American Idol, and South Louisiana pride is still flying high. And so is Laine. After winning the championship and getting the record deal with Hollywood Records, he's been racking up national TV performance and face time. And lots of frequent flyer miles. From GMA to The View. Jimmy Kimmel Live to iHeartRadio's Wango Tango. Singing his guts out, Shredding the guitar. Rocking the suits and OWNING the red carpet. And there's more to come for sure.
Although I'm not 100% sure, the American Idol Hollywood winners Laine (and even his good friend Ashton Gill) made the case for us. We made it clear--there's talent in dem' der bayous. With that rather strong evidence, the show brass probably had to consider Baton Rouge as an audition stop for next season. Now its a definite. The date is August 25th, so mark that date in your phone now.
