Fans of Laine Hardy saw him take the crown for 'American Idol' in May

It's incredible to think that just a few short weeks ago in May, Laine Hardy took the crown in "American Idol" 2019. If you think time's flying by, imagine how it all feels for Laine!

One moment he was a hopeful contestant and just a matter of hours later, he flew into New York for a round of interviews. As he said in the new "An American Idol Story: Laine Hardy," he knew he looked "tired," but he never really felt that way.

On the plane, he managed to sleep for about five hours, and the whirl began. When he disembarked from the plane, he said, "I'm really excited for what's to come." Plus, he was looking forward to seeing his family. For Laine, he looked comfortable in his tee and jeans, but somehow walking in the city with so many photographers around him, it must have been amazing.

Laine Hardy's a country boy from Louisana, and the big city and instant fame could bewilder anyone from his background.

However, he held it together, and still managed to look just like the Laine fans came to love. Episode one of the mini-series shows him at "The View" and other places. Plus, he ended up at Disney Radio where fans screamed their happiness at seeing him. Fans queued up for his signature, and he agreed, yes, he maybe need to "take a deep breath."

It's been a head-turning ride, and in the first episode, it's obvious that Laine's having some difficulty taking at all in.

He says repeatedly, "it's crazy." Those fans hoping Laine stays true to himself can get a glimpse of just how seductive life in the limelight can be. But, as noted on his social media fan groups, his mom Cindy and dad, Barry brought him up the right way. Plus, his hometown's not going to let him forget his roots. Actually, Laine recently went home and it looks like he spent a lovely time on the river as he shared photos of his boat on IG.
