Back in Daytona Beach by popular demand – WROD The Rock of Daytona presents Benton Blount in concert Friday July 27th at 8PM.
Growing up in the North Carolina mountains, Benton Blount never picked up a guitar or a microphone, much less played a tune. At age 18, his music pastor snuck a microphone up to his mouth and to his and everyone’s amazement, a beautiful voice was pouring out. Thus, sparking Benton’s passion for singing and writing songs.
The Season 10 airing of NBC’s America’s Got Talent was a triumphant moment for singer-songwriter Benton Blount, who sailed through the audition round with the enthusiastic support of all four of the show’s celebrity judges. For country radio, it may have served as a reminder of a talented artist who once slipped through the cracks of the Nashville system. But his success on the show, says Blount, confirms “what my heart and my mind has already told me, that … the people who even toyed around with the idea of signing me to a [Nashville label] deal and then walked away for some reason missed out on something. It’s been a mission of mine ever since then to prove them wrong. This is my way of doing it without having to go through the hoops.”
Benton would go on to finish Season 10 of AGT in the Top 5 and has never looked back. Splitting his time between recording new music, touring, raising his children and hosting a weekly audio blog, Benton stays busy for sure.
