Here are 5 things to know about the grateful winner, who is the very last "American Idol."

1 - Check Out His First Single "Falling"

"Falling" is the young singer's first official tune and it's already in the top 10 on iTunes. "Idol" judge Keith Urban actually co-wrote the song with the star, so that's a big plus.

Here's the "Idol" version.

2 - He's From the South

Harmon, 25, is from Amory, Mississippi, and he first became interested in music at age 5, according to the American Idol Wikia. He attended the University of Arkansas at Monticello and tried out for other singing shows before hitting it big on "Idol."

3 - His Fellow Contestant Dalton Is His "Best Friend"

Contestants get close on "Idol," but Trent and Dalton Rapattoni really epitomize camaraderie. They post tons of pictures together and one is even captioned, "That's my best friend."

Harmon also supported the heck out of Rapattoni, even though he needed America's vote as well.

Go best friend. That's my best friend. ????

"Thankful for this crazy, crazy, man's friendship."

4 - He's Passionate About His Faith

This past Easter, Harmon shared a photo from church and wrote, "Happy Easter, y'all. Have fun today; remember your purpose, where you've been, who's you are and where you want to go."

He even shares inspiring quotes from others.

"Hope you guys are having a very solid Tuesday. Luh you bunches," he wrote last month.
