Noah Thompson was crowned the newest winner of American Idol on May 22. The young country singer from Kentucky never planned to appear on the show. He was working construction and singing was just a hobby of his. But his friend, Arthur, signed him up to audition without telling him, and the rest is history.

After winning Idol, Thompson told Good Morning America he was looking forward to returning to Kentucky. He shares a one-year-old son with his girlfriend, Angel, and is excited to spend some time with them and his friends at home.

I want to see my family and just kind of let this settle in, you know what I mean?” he said. “It’s going to be wild. I’m going to try to just stick to, you know, staying in the house for a little bit.”

While Thompson has been enjoying some much-needed time at home after winning Idol, his debut single “One Day Tonight” has been making a huge impact. The song reached the #1 spot on not one, but TWO iTunes charts.

You all are awesome!!” Thompson wrote on Instagram. “One day Tonight is number 1 on #itunes charts for #allgenres and also #countrygenre…keep it climbing y’all, thank you guys…”
