Trent Harmon – Unaware by Allen Stone – Another farm dweller. He and his family run a restaurant on the farm. It’s “yard to the table,” Trent explains. They raise beef. Wow. I was totally expecting him to bust out some bro country, after hearing that thick southern accent and the cow talk. But no. NOOOO. He’s doing this exquisite soulful singer songwriter thing, and it’s BEAUTIFUL. He’s got a gorgeous tone and an amazing falsetto. He’s like a folky Robin Thicke. Me likey. The judges are surprised and delighted. Trent’s audition is Harry’s favorite so far. 3 enthusiastic yesses.
