Rockwall’s American Idol: Catching up with Graham DeFranco – You formed a strong bond with several contestants on the show, including the season winner Chayce Beckham. What has their support meant to you? Hunter Metts, Wyatt Pike and Chayce were my three closest people there. We’re going to be friends for the rest of our lives. They feel like brothers to me. I’m just really glad I know those guys because they’re all great human beings. It’s a true brotherhood, a true friendship and it means so much.
What’s next for you? I just recorded a song in Seattle that will be released some time this summer, which I’m really excited for. I think it has a lot of potential to be something great. Once I move to Nashville, I’m going to be doing a ton of writing and playing, just getting better and growing. My goal right now is to make original content. Hopefully by the end of the year I’ll have enough original stuff to begin working on an album. I’m trying not to overwhelm myself with trying to do too much, but I know I have a small window of opportunity so I need to capitalize on it. I’m excited to be out there and be able to create around a bunch of other artistic people. – Read more at BlueRibbonNews

On tracks like “He Did It,” “Just Like God” and “Look No Further,” the singer underlines how faith doesn’t just give her a refuge on Sunday mornings, but every day—and forevermore. – Read more at Grammy.com
