Bradenton-bound country singer Tate Stevens became a national celebrity by winning FOX’s second season of "The X Factor" with crowd-pleasing performances Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer," the Garth Brooks hit  "If Tomorrow Never Comes" and Chris Young's  "Tomorrow."

Stevens’ win in December  sent him to Nashville where he recorded his self-titled debut album that came out Tuesday (April 23).

It includes the twang-rocking first single “Holler If You’re With Me” and the arena-ready ballad “Power Of A Love Song,” Stevens' most recent release to country radio.

“In February 2012 I woke up and it was, ‘I have to go plow snow today,’" Stevens says on his website. "A year later, it was, ‘I get to write a song today. I get to go record today. I get to go hang out with my heroes.’ I’m so blessed. And it’s the coolest feeling.”
