Laine Hardy Sings “Jambalaya (On the Bayou)”

Singing a Hank Williams song that was released in 1952 is not what you would expect from young artists nowadays. Well, Laine surely knows his audience and the solid support that country fans have for him.

Jambalaya (On the Bayou)” has been the ticket for the singer to win the competition. As usual, Laine is with his guitar doing what he loves to do; performing and charming his audience. For an 18-year old musician, he always exudes confidence and maturity on stage.

All the judges loved it and gave him a standing ovation. We’re pretty sure that country fans also loved his performance of the classic Hank Williams song.

Laine Hardy’s Journey to the Idol Stage

All throughout his journey in American Idol, he has proven that he can perform various genres of music. This might be the strategy of Laine Hardy coming into the competition the second time around.

He performed songs by Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, Queen, and Band of Heathens. As he is still discovering his own style in singing, Laine often performs songs in country, gospel, and rock and roll music.

Right after being announced as the new winner of American Idol, he debuts his song “Flame.” He was then joined by fellow Idols as he basks in his victory.
