The American Idol Live Tour has been sweeping across the U.S. all summer. This year the Idols have demonstrated they are more than just a collaboration of pretty voices. Several Idols have picked up their favorite Gibson guitars. American Idol runner-up Blake Lewis is featured here with a Gibson Les Paul guitar along with his fellow Idol, Chris Sligh.  

Lewis and Sligh are not the only American Idol alum to love Gibson. Judge Randy Jackson recently toured the Gibson Showcase in Memphis, and former contestant and breakout star Chris Daughtry always has his Gibson Les Paul on the road with him.
