When Paul McDonald takes to the stage tonight on American Idol, he'll likely be less nervous than any of the other 11 male semifinalists.
That's because the 26-year old from Nashville has already recorded multiple albums with his band, The Grand Magnolias, and toured a bit around the country. The artist has more experience than most in the competition.
Will that result in a well-polished performance? We'll soon find out. For now, watch McDonald talk about his group and listen to him sing the same original song that he used on an earlier audition, "American Dreams."
