Kris Allen Covers Tom Petty’s “Breakdown” (VIDEO)

Watch Kris Allen sing a cool, soulful cover of the Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers classic, “Breakdown” in Asheville, NC earlier this week. Kris has been performing fan requests nightly on his “Out Alive” tour.

The icing on the cake? Tom Petty returned a link to this you tube “Nice.” he said. Kudos Kris! Also, the Season 8 Idol winner had his big ole wrist cast taken off. Nice to know that he’s feeling better.
