Will Moseley’s Single Overtook “American Idol” Winner Abi Carter On “Billboard” Charts: Watch The Official Music Video

Wil Moseley

Will Moseley is less than two weeks out of becoming American Idol’s runner-up, and he already has a charting single.

The country singer released Good Book Bad on May 16th, just days before the Season 22 grand finale. He celebrated a milestone when it debuted on the Billboard charts at no. 14. When that happened, he overtook Abi Carter’s This Isn’t Over, which hit the same charts at no. 23.

The single, which was penned by Jordan Walker, Lalo Guzman, and Thomas Archer, is “A spirited and heartfelt tale of redemption,” according to a press release. The lyrics tell a story about a young man who struggles to find a balance between the “good book” and a fast life.

“It’s a song that takes you through bad decisions, unexpected blessings, and the trials of life while always reminding you where the answers are found,” Will shared in the release.

Will said that he has friends who experienced the “exact situations” he sings about in Good Book Bad. And he admitted that he’s had his “fair share of screw-ups,” too.”

“I think that’s what makes the song so special to me,” he added.

“American Idol” Runner-Up Will Moseley “Hit The Ground Running”

The charting single isn’t Will Moseley’s only celebratory feat either. The 23-year-old will also be opening for the Grammy-winning Zac Brown Band in New York City tomorrow (June 2). So he came out of American Idol and “hit the ground running,”

“Beyond thankful for this opportunity,” he wrote in a post.

Following the NYC gig, Will Moseley will head to Nashville, TN, to perform with CMA Fest’s 19 Takeover with fellow American Idol contestants Emmy Russell, IamTongi, and more.
