Contestant's Unconventional Song Choice Leaves Simon Stunned

Willie Jones wowed The X Factor judges by sounding just like this song's original artist, Josh Turner. "Your Man" was released back in January of 2006 and was the first single from the album of the same name; peaking at Number One on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and 38 on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart. A native of South Carolina, Turner's first band was actually a gospel quartet, known as the "Thankful Hearts," where he sang bass. His deep, sultry voice caught the attention of the crowd at his Grand Old Opry debut, earning him a standing ovation in the middle of his performance while singing his first single, "Long Black Train." It was so popular, in fact, that he sang the same song again for an encore.
