American Idol: Luke Bryan Gives an Unexpected Gift to Idol Hopeful

These boots are made for walking! American Idol judge Luke Bryan gives away his boots to Texan native and Idol hopeful Colby Swift.

The country superstar stunned Swift on Sunday night’s episode when he gave him his boots after noticing that both of Swift’s boots had holes worn right through them.

Bryan asked Swift to show the camera the soles of his boots, and instantly the camera honed in on the holes where Brian claimed they were.

‘What size shoe are you, Colby? Wouldn’t be a 12D would it?’ Luke asked, with the hopeful smiling as he said: ‘I mean, whatever fits.’

‘Well, I’m a 12D. We’ll solve that little problem,’ Luke told him, taking off his own expensive cowboy boots and walking up to the stage to hand them over.

Bryan walked out from behind the judges’ table and handed his boots to a shocked Swift. The teen crooner immediately swapped them for his worn-out pair.

“So Colby, those boots are made for walking to the next round,” Bryan added.

Swift’s American Idol’s Journey

Earlier, he was driven to tears when Swift had a standing ovation for his solo performance of Freddy Fender’s ‘Every Teardrop Falls,’ which he dedicated to his little sister.

“To have Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie and Katy Perry stand up for me – that’s a blessing, man.”

However, Swift’s Idol journey was cut short when he was eliminated during the group rounds where he forgot the words to the hit Bruno Mars’ song ‘Grenade.’

“They told me those boots were your lucky boots, and then you put my boots on and this happens,”

Bryan said to Swift after his elimination.

But Swift seemed to take the loss in stride and left the competition with more determination.

“I am leaving with my head held high – and Luke Bryan’s boots. They’re my boots now, they ain’t yours no more.”
