“It was easy to pick songs for each other because we know what kind of artists we want to be and we didn’t want to jeopardize each other.” C. Harris picked “Muckalee Creek Water” by Luke Bryan for Roberts, and although he got generally positive reviews, he was ultimately eliminated.
The Fayette, Alabama native won fans over with his Southern twang, and despite getting some criticism about diction and pronunciation, the singer says that’s just who he is — but he’ll work on it. It puts fuel onto my fire and makes me want to do better each week.” Roberts got particularly close to fellow contestants Caleb Johnson and Harris, but Harris and Roberts had already been friends for over five years before They met during spring break in Panama City and bonded over music.
We try to help each other out and fix each other’s technique.” Not only did Roberts get to go on his journey with a close friend, but he also met his girlfriend Savannah Coker at auditions.
Coker, part of the country music band Sweet Tea Trio, didn’t make it to Hollywood but showed her love by being in the audience with Roberts’s mother.
She sang "Bennie and the Jets" for her farewell encore performance.
Although often harshly criticized by the judges for her song choice and stage presence, she was considered a fan-favorite and a dark horse in the competition.
“She’s been nothing but great support, and she’s been behind me the whole way,” he gushes.
In the same year, she also gained notoriety for her cover of Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling in Love," which was used in a commercial for Extra Gum, became a viral sensation, peaked at number 16 on the US Adult Contemporary chart, and was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America on February 17, 2017.

“I wanted the judges to be harsh on me because criticism helps you become a better artist,” he says. Roberts made it through first, and after lending Harris his guitar, the good luck must have rubbed off because both friends went on to Hollywood.
She is set to reprise the role in the series' second season.
Her second studio album, Better, served as an expansion of an initially conceived EP and was released on April 29, 2016, following the lead single and title track, "Better," which was released on April 8.
