Garbage Man Wows ‘Idol’ Judges, Sings Rascal Flatts’ “Bless the Broken Road” With Luke Bryan

American Idol is back.

Some still watch the show. Others hate it. I’m always up for a heartwarming story, however, and this is one.

Garbage man Doug Kiker was used to only singing while on the back of the truck before walking into his audition. He ended up singing the Rascal Flatts’ hit (covered by many), “Bless the Broken Road.”

He left Katy Perry in tears, and had Luke Bryan singing with him while playing piano.
