And it’s safe to say after this he never had to turn back, and his success is what made him a man with such a huge net worth with fancy cars and comfortable house.
His first single debut album AUSTIN released by Giant Records changed his life. The song not only made a hit in America but also appeared on the top list of the Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and remained there for five weeks. He was then shifted to Warner Bros. Records soon after the Giant Records shut down. This change did not make a change in his bright fortune. In fact, he started doing, even more songs and releasing, even more, albums further which led him to a great fame of today. His contribution to the music industry has made his life and resulted in achievement of numerous awards. His fame has also helped him land a role as a judge in three popular television singing competitions, Nashville Star, Clash of the Choirs and ever popular The Voice.
