Maurice auditioned for season 20 of American Idol with Morgan Wallen’s “Whiskey Glasses”

The 22-year-old South Carolina native auditioned for season 20 of american idol with Wallen’s hit, “Whiskey Glasses”, and frequently covers Wallen as he wanders the streets of Louisiana and more recently downtown Nashville. While Maurice deserved the praise of Idol judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan during his audition, he was eliminated from the competition after the duet round.

Although he didn’t go any further, Maurice said musical chaos that many people sent Wallen videos of him performing his songs and shared his reaction to joining him on stage.

“Morgan has asked several people in his personal life to send him clips of me and my various performances of his music,” Maurice said of how he met the “You Proof” singer. “He felt like God was calling us together. Three individuals who do not know each other have all drawn his attention to the same guy. It’s divine right there.

Maurice was in shock when Morgan Wallen invited him to sing a duet in Atlanta

Maurice went on to say that singing on stage with Wallen after covering his songs was “too good to be true”.

“Join Morgan [on stage] I felt like every decision I made led to this moment. [It] felt like the greatest moment of my life. I felt like it was fake and too good to be true,” Maurice admitted. “The same guy I’ve made a living with covering his songs for the past few years invites me to sing with him. He’s the number 1 man in the world when it comes to music right now.

“For Morgan to invite me to play meant that he respected me and what I do and for that he will always have my respect,” he added.

In a video that featured the performance between Maurice and Wallen, Wallen said he saw a TikTok video of the South Carolina native performing and then one of his team members contacted him for the invite you to sing at the concert. “We wanted to shed some light on him and his story and we thought tonight would be a really good night to do that,” Wallen explained.

Prior to their live collaboration, Maurice rehearsed backstage while Wallen watched him sing one of his tracks. The viral busker covered Wallen’s “Redneck Love Song,” of which he shared a clip captioned, “If only y’all could see how @morganwallen was looking at me…here’s a little warm up before the show…”
