American Idol fans will surely enjoy this gorgeous rendition of a Hank Williams classic by Season 12 finalist Janelle Arthur. Listen to the budding country star’s take on “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” at her Grand Ole Opry debut below!
Personally, I don’t think Idol knew how to handle Janelle this season, and that was unfortunate. They weren’t necessarily looking for artists or interpreters, and Janelle ended up side-swiped by the process. Well, their loss. We can enjoy Janelle post-Idol just fine.
Janelle Arthur currently joins her fellow American Idol finalists on the show’s nation-wide summer tour. Would you like to hear more music from Janelle Arthur? Do you think she has what it takes to conquer the current country music scene?
Good luck, Janelle!
