It’s been a big year for Caleb Johnson. After winning American Idol, the popular singer has been touring the nation playing at venues across the country. Friday he appeared as Grand Marshal for Gatlinburg’s Fantasy of Lights Christmas Parade. Saturday he appeared at Ripley’s Aquarium in the Smokies where he met fans and signed autographs and sold his latest CD “Testify.”
Johnson will be appearing next week in Asheville with country music legend Vince Gill at a benefit for Habitat for Humanity.
“I have met Vince and he is the nicest guy,” said Johnson. “I am looking forward to the show.”
Since winning the highly popular reality show, Johnson has been touring and performing with numerous artists including the heavy metal band Kiss.
“Those guys are a lot of fun,” said Johnson. “Paul Stanley is hilarious.”
After the Asheville show Johnson will kick off a 40 city tour across the U.S. and Canada.
