A former paint salesman and trading-floor clerk at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Lee DeWyze was the winner of the ninth season of "American Idol" (2010). His sound has been influenced by legends including Cat Stevens, Eric Clapton, Ben Harper and Simon & Garfunkel. And his career has taken another turn -- that of a singer/songwriter whose music is in demand for TV shows, films and commercials. The doors blew open in 2014 when he recorded "Blackbird Song" for the soundtrack of "The Walking Dead."
