NASHVILLE, Tenn. - It was another emotional night for Gallatin's Ben Briley who had to wait almost 2 hours for his chance to sing. USA TODAY music writer and Idol blogger Brian Mansfield joins us. Mansfield really liked Sam Wolf. Wolf is from Bradenton, Florida, the Tampa area. Keith Urban said "People like you Sam." He also said "Your voice is money." Another southern singer who may have resonated with some of our viewers: Dexter Roberts. Roberts is from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. He sang the Craig Morgan song "This Ole Boy". Dexter was comfortable, he knows who he is. Our local singer, Ben Briley of Gallatin, is 24. Briley graduated from Gallatin High School and MTSU. He sang "Soul Shine", southern rock and country. To vote for Ben Briley, text 9 to 83676 or call 1.855.443.6509.
