The Next Big Thing: Chayce Beckham went from winning American Idol to rocking the CMA Fest stage!

Chayce Beckham has earned the title of one of “Music Row’s Next Big Thing” and he has the talent to back it up.

Chayce was the first American Idol participant to win the competition with his own original song— “23". From there, he hit the road with legendary country artists like Luke Combs and Jimmie Allen and is now gearing up for a tour with Luke Bryan!

We caught up with him to talk about what performing at the 50th CMA Fest means to him, pre-show rituals, and what the future holds.
