Noah Thompson left the small town of Louisa, Kentucky for the bright lights of Hollywood to compete on 'American Idol.'

The 20-year-old construction worker with no musical training wowed the judges and fans to win the 20th season of the singing competition.

The country music singer won a $250,000 prize and a record deal. The Lawrence County father's first single is 'One Day Tonight' and is available on iTunes.
