Luke Bryan loved American Idol contestant Alex Miller’s voice so much that he may make a call to get him to perform the track live at the Grand Ole Opry.
Miller gushed “i’m so happy to be here, I don’t know what to do,” upon taking the idol stage to perform his original song “I’m Over You, So Get Over Me,” inspired by an ex-girlfriend.
Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan seemed to thoroughly enjoy his performance.
“Love it, love it, love it,” Richie said as Perry chimed in “YeeHaw.”
“Thank you Jesus,” Bryan added.
“I am thrilled, your personality is just infectious,” Richie gushed.
“What happens if you were to ever play the Grand Ole Opry?” Bryan asked before Miller replied, “Oh, I don’t know man, I’d die and goto Heaven.”
“I think I can make a call at some point,” Bryan promised.
Perry then challenged Bryan to sing a song with Miller, which he chose to duet Merle Haggard’s “Big City.” The judge and contestant pairing found Miller singing in perfect harmony with Bryan, while both of them played acoustic guitar. Miller’s classic country voice blended flawlessly with Bryan’s vocals in the clip, which can be viewed below.

Miller is a 17-year-old singer from Lancaster, Kentucky and goes by Alex Kentucky Kowboy Miller online.
