American Idol Contestant Delivers Impressive Cover Of Whiskey Myers’ “Stone”

Anyone singing Whiskey Myers is alright in my book.

On the latest episode of American Idol, country music was once again representing with Kacey Musgraves, Gabby Barrett, Waylon Jennings, and more.

And Mark Osborne’s audition Whiskey Myers audition was a compelling one:

“Mark Osborne lost his spark for music. As a birthday gift to his mom, he promises to audition for Idol. 

If he makes it, he’ll take it as a sign he’s meant to continue pursuing music and if he doesn’t, it’s time to hang up the guitar.”

Mark wowed all three judges with a soulful performance of Whiskey Myers’ “Stone,” a fan favorite from their 2016 Mud album.

Luke Bryan was into it, Lionel liked the stache, and Katy Perry praised his authenticity:

“I mean, the wirey guitar strings and all… people reference your look in Los Angeles to be that cool.

When you’re singing, you’re singing from a real life story. You’re the guy who we look for at American Idol. It’s just authentic… Brother Osborne.”

Good stuff.

Nobody does it like Cody though…
