When Milton Patton auditioned for Season 8 of America's Got Talent in 2014, he won the hearts of the judges and the world. 

Patton turned to singing, and country music in particular, following a bad breakup. One day when he was driving to work, he heard the song "Whiskey Lullaby" by Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss, and he was deeply moved by it since it applied to his situation. When Patton auditioned for America's Got Talent he sang that exact song, earning a great amount of praise from all of the judges.

You have a very amazing, unique voice, " judge Mel B said, "and I do see a superstar within you."

Although Patton did not win the competition, he built up a strong fan base, and was approached by many people to sign a record deal. But as Patton says on his official website, he turned them all down, wanting to pursue his own type of country music, something more classic in style:

"I had a lot of music industry people coming at me after AGT. But they had their own ideas of what I should sound like...they thought...I should just jump on the latest country music trend. But what I really like is the classic country sound, just good solid songs and catchy tunes."

Since his appearance on America's Got Talent, Patton has kept busy playing shows, writing songs, and working on producing his first independent album. In addition, Patton also takes the time every now and then to record himself singing famous country songs, such as Garth Brooks' "The Dance."

More recently, Patton decided to try his hand at the song "Tennessee Whiskey," originally recorded by David Allan Coe, made a top ten hit by George Jones, and turned into a chart-topping single by reigning CMA Male Vocalist of the Year, Chris Stapleton.

The video Patton shared is extremely casual, as he works on cooking his dinner while he sings. It sounds like Patton's kitchen has some good acoustics, because his voice fills up the entire room, especially when he holds out the long notes.

You can watch Patton's incredible cover of "Tennessee Whiskey" in the video below, and while you're at it, enjoy listening to Chris Stapleton's version of the song as well.

The only thing wrong with Patton's rendition is that he doesn't sing the whole song! We'd love to hear more from him in the future.

LYRICS BELOW

I used to spend my nights out in a barroom
Liquor was the only love I’ve known
But you rescued me from reachin’ for the bottom
And brought me back from being too far gone

You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
You’re as sweet as strawberry wine
You’re as warm as a glass of brandy
And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time

I’ve looked for love in all the same old places
Found the bottom of a bottle always dry
But when you poured out your heart I didn’t waste it
‘Cause there’s nothing like your love to get me high

You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
You’re as sweet as strawberry wine
You’re as warm as a glass of brandy
And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time

You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
You’re as sweet as strawberry wine
You’re as warm as a glass of brandy
And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time

You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
You’re as sweet as strawberry wine
You’re as warm as a glass of brandy
And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time

Well, I stayed stoned on your love all the time
