[Watch] “American Idol” Alum Trent Harmon Performs Stirring Rendition of “Her”

-

America first fell in love with Trent Harmon during Season 15 of American Idol in 2016, where the country singer was crowned winner. Two years later, the singer returns with his debut album, You Got ‘Em All, and one of the standout tracks is “Her.”

On the stirring ballad, Trent sings of an event that happened during his days filming American Idol in which he was propositioned by another woman. During the incident, he politely turned the woman down and explained that he had a girlfriend. In a new acoustic video for the song, the lyrics come to life with Trent’s powerful singing at the forefront of the track.

“You could be fine / You could be sweet / You could be everything that I need / You could be the fix / You could be the cure / But whatever you are, girl / One thing’s for sure / You’ll never be her, her, her, her / You’ll never be her, her, her, her,” he sings on the chorus.

The five-minute, stripped-down song features Trent alone on vocals with his acoustic guitar in hand. Alongside delicate guitar picking, Trent’s soulful voice shines. Trent co-wrote the powerful song with Jimmy Robbins and Laura Veltz. The singer penned eight of the 11 tracks on the album You Got ‘Em All, released earlier this year.

The “Idol” winner is in the midst of his headlining tour with select dates throughout the summer. Additionally, he serves as an opener on Rascal Flatts’ Back To Us Tour that runs through the fall.

Known for his blend of country and soul music, Trent won over viewers on American Idol performing covers by Lynyrd Skynyrd and Chris Stapleton including, “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Drink You Away.” The Mississippi native was the final winner of American Idol before the show’s reboot, which aired earlier this year, with judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie.
