This is a gut punch, heart-rending lyric. Perfectly fit to show off Grace’s beautiful mid-range. I could listen to this over and over again. Probably will.

Casey Bishop-“Love Me, Leave Me”

There’s no doubt Casey Bishop is a versatile artist! We’ve seen her cover rock, blues and pop hits throughout the American Idol competition, and she’s back once more to prove she can literally sing any song! Vibe along to her radio-ready song, “Love Me, Leave Me.”

Feel it in my bones that even if Casey doesn’t win she will be one of the next American idol contestants to go mainstream and be big! She’s a superstar!!

Chayce Beckham- “23”

Personal, relatable and unique! Chayce Beckham’s new single, “23” is all three and then some. It’s no surprise Chayce is able to create a hit song. He’s a talented songwriter, singer and musician, which are traits American Idol fans love and appreciate.

What are fans saying?

This is clearly the only song out of the 4 that isn’t completely generic. He wasn’t originally my top contender, and I usually hate country music but this is objectively the best song out of the 4 of them. It actually has a story behind it and sounds original
