Newly crowned American Idol winner, Noah Thompson is giving fans what they have been waiting for–a brand new original song “Make You Rich,” released via 19 Recordings and BBR Music Group.

Formerly a construction worker, the small-town Country singer found national support due to his humble and kind demeanor, winning the hearts of millions across the country. With that same sentiment, “Make You Rich–produced by Jimmy Robbins, and written by Craig Wiseman, Driver Williams and Jason Nix— tells the story of choosing to be a better man by giving more and taking less.

“From the second you meet Noah, you’re rooting for him,” said Robbins, who has penned 10 No. 1 singles. “Not only is he incredibly talented, but he’s one of the most genuine people I’ve worked with. When he steps up to the mic in the studio, it feels like he’s been doing this for years. I can’t wait to see what’s next for him.”

“I’m from a small town in Eastern Kentucky and didn’t grow up with much,” Noah says in a press statement. “I’ve learned to value my friends and family so much more than the materialistic things we can have in life. I joke that I’m just a simple guy. I’ve also learned, even when life is tough, the more you give and the more you love, the richer you are, and that is the whole meaning behind ‘Make You Rich.'”

Noah shot the music video in and around his hometown, Louisa, Kentucky, alongside his young son. Walker.

“Make You Rich” comes just in time for Noah’s co-headlining tour with Idol runner-up HunterGirl. The tour kicks off on October 27 in Columbus, Ohio.  Fellow American Idol alums Grace Leer and Laci Kaye Booth will serve as openers on select dates. Click HERE for tickets.

The new single follows his  popular American Idol winners single “One Day Tonight” that immediately shot to No. 1 on iTunes All Genres and Country charts and is still racking up an incredible number of on-demand streams, averaging nearly 1 million per week, as well as a countrified recording of his pivotal Idol cover, Rihanna’s “Stay.”

Back in June, Noah made his CMA Fest debut in Nashville, singing “One Day Tonight” on stage during Jimmie Allen’s set. Later, he joined Chayce Beckham, last year’s winner, to sing his winners single, “23.”

Founder and editor of, home of the awesomest fan community on the net. I love cheesy singing shows of all kinds, whether reality or scripted. I adore American Idol, but also love The Voice, Glee, X Factor and more!


  1. I love this song lol. The video with that adorable child helps lol.

  2. Not the best day to drop a single (Taylor Swift has the top 14 spots on iTunes, lol), but the song is in the T40.

    It will be interesting to see what streaming looks like.

  3. I prefer “One Day Tonight.” To me the new song is a bunch of noise that drowns out the message of the song. Needs more dynamics. Noah sounds fine, though.

  4. Not sure if it’s my hearing or the music, but I could barely make out any of the words. Which is not a plus for me.

    Also not a fan of lifting up little kids by their arms, at least without prior warning.

  5. Noah’s streaming is a little over 14K on Spotify. HunterGirl’s single is a little over 7K.

  6. I also prefer “One Day Tonight.” However, this song sounds more like a style he would be more comfortable with. I could potentially see other songs sounding more similar to this song in the future since he doesn’t want to do country pop. This song is a style that does get radio airplay. I don’t think this song is currently being sent to radio. However, I’m not sure it would do well on radio either because I don’t think it’s radio-friendly.

  7. Kids love that swinging around and we had that done when we was little , didn’t hurt us and I’m 61 now ??

  8. Reminds me of Lee Dewyze’s first post Idol single (Sweet Serendipity).

    His label had the fortuitous timing to release it approximately 2 hours before there was a surprise drop of the entire Beatles catalog on iTunes (the first time it was ever available digitally).

    Unsurprisingly, Lee did not get much coverage/publicity that day.

  9. I have multiple kids and grandkids. Yes, they do love it, but it’s best if they see it coming.
