Trevor serenaded the judges with Brett Young’s “In Case You Didn’t Know”, which won him a Golden Ticket to Hollywood, which isn’t far from his hometown of Thousand Oaks, California.

After Idol, Trevor’s played shows with Mitchell Tenpenny, Big & Rich, Eli Young Band, Russell Dickerson, Runaway June, Danielle Bradbery to name a few. Trevor spent the last year commuting between L.A. and Nashville writing and recording songs he plans on sharing, starting with “Took His Time.” 

“I sat down my songwriting buddies (The Country Boys), and we had been batting around some different ideas. I remembered hearing a saying a long time ago, 'God took his time on you,' and I thought, whoa, that’s a song lyric if I’ve ever heard one. The song is about that moment when you look at someone and you think to yourself, whoever created this person took a little extra time because they truly are something special.” –Trevor Holmes
