Who was CJ Harris?

At the age of eight, he began learning the guitar on a damaged instrument with only three strings that his grandfather had given him.
Harris is also a pianist. His musical styles were defined by AL.com as “Earthly roots rock, with blues and country influences.”
Usher, Keith Sweat and Darius Rucker were among his earliest musical influences. He has also listed Ray LaMontagne, The Allman Brothers Band, John Legend, John Mayer and Keith Urban as some of his favorite musicians.

CJ stunned America with powerful performances of ‘Too Close’, ‘American Woman’ and ‘Free Fallin” after her fantastic audition.
He was retained in the competition after not receiving enough votes in the semi-finals and advanced to the top 6 before being eliminated by the judges as a wild card.
After “Idol,” CJ performed at The Grand Ole Opry with Darius Rucker, who CJ credits as a major influence on his style. He even performed for viewers on the season 13 tour of the competition show.

So sad to hear that former American Idol contestant and Jasper native CJ Harris has passed away. CJ made it to the Top 6 on Idol in 2014. He was a sweet and kind guest on Good Day Alabama. TMZ reports that he died of a heart attack. He was 32 years old. Prayers this morning for CJ’s family.

My heart is heavy to hear of a person’s death American Idol and a friend CJ Harris. I’m just shocked. Your talent and smile will be missed, and the world is definitely a darker and more eerily quieter place without you in it. I will miss your random phone calls asking for life advice and talking about the world of music. When you go through something like Idol together, it unites everyone involved as a big, weird, dysfunctional family. I am grateful that our paths crossed and I can say that you were (and always will be) a part of mine. There are many things I realize I will never understand – you leaving us so soon is one of those things. Take it easy, my friend. See you on the other side.
