As soon as John Wayne Schulz walked through the audition room door, Keith Urban whispered, “there’s the winner– you can tell.”

Before John Wayne got started singing he told the judges his story– he served in the Marine Corps, took care of his mother while she battled cancer and wanted to honor her by trying out for “American Idol”– again. During season 10 of the show, John Wayne tried out and the judges chose Scotty McCreery over him to continue on.

We think Garth Brooks and John Wayne’s mother would be proud of this “The Dance” cover.
