American Idol 2009’s Michael Sarver Says ‘No More Oil Rigs’

michael_sarver_01Despite being voted off of American Idol 2009 during the Top 10 week, Michael Sarver says he has big plans for the future and those plans do not involve returning to an oil rig anytime soon:

“I will not be going back to the oil rig”, Sarver told reporters in a conference call the morning after he was voted off the TV talent show.

“There is something that America does not know about me. I am a serious writer. I have written over 890 songs since the age of 14. There is a lot of stories, a lot of life, a hard-lived life and a good-lived life…and I’m going to share it.”

“I plan to record, I plan to get my music out there… I believe that because I’ve made it so far in the competition, it shows me there are people who respect and appreciate what I have, and I’m going to give them even more.”

Wow. 890 is a lot of songs to write! Do you think Michael Sarver has a chance to make it with a solo career after he wraps up his American Idol 2009 summer tour with the rest of the Top 10 singers? Even if he never makes it BIG big I’d still expect him to be able to make a go of it if he strikes while the iron is hot.
