The American Idol LIVE! Tour has come to Jackson and Skylar Laine is expected to pack the Mississippi Coliseum with her fans.
Earlier Tuesday, she signed autographs and had a meet and greet lunch at a local radio station.
The Brandon singing sensation is ready to rock the coliseum tonight.
"I'm singing 'Gunpowder and Lead' and 'Stay with Me Tonight'," Skylar said. "Two rocking out songs. You 'll get to see the real me. I didn't get to completely go as crazy as I wanted on the show. They'll see that in concert tonight."
The Idol star stopped off at Miss 103 radio where 10 lucky listeners won a chance to have lunch and chat with the Brandon teen. Lunch was catered by her favorite eating place.
"Those are from Beatty Street Grocery," Skylar said. "My family's store; 72 years in business."
Skylar is among the top 10 contestants on a nationwide tour that ends in September. She told her fans today the schedule is grueling, but she loves it.
"I'm really ready to be home because it's not like we just went on my tour," Skylar said. "I've had the show since February. Now the tour so, it's really hard and I miss home. So I'm just waiting for the day when I get to come home."
Skylar's plans include a move to Nashville in December. She hopes to produce a record and get signed with a recording company in the near future.
