A finalist on the 10th season of America’s Got Talent, Benton Blount is a southern rock country singer/songwriter with a heart of gold. Country Music’s #CMchat is honored to welcome Benton for an hour long Twitterview on Monday October 18 starting at 6pPT/9pET. We’ll talking about what he’s been up to since AGT, touring, all those muscles, tattoos, good looks, great voice and anything else you can come up with!
You can submit questions that you might want us to feature below. This doesn’t mean you still can’t ask questions the night of the Twitterview. These are just featured by our host Jessica Northey (me) and I will give you credit like this:

Benton Blount’s – God Talks To Me
MORE ABOUT BENTON
Benton Blount knows to trust his instincts. Repeatedly through his career, he s moved forward by walking through an open door, even if making that step defied logic at the time. I ve had to stop wondering why all my dreams seem to keep coming true and moving me forward, Blount says. I ve learned to trust that singing and writing songs is what I m supposed to do, because every time I focus on my music, new opportunities suddenly present themselves.
I know people look at me, with my tattoos and apperance, and they don t think I look like a country singer, he says. When I sing, I have a gruffness to my voice that s different than most country singers too. But when I start to talk, you can hear that I m as country as cornbread. And the songs, with their real-life stories and positive outlook on life, have more in common with country music than anything else. Country music is where I belong!
