Speaking with FOX Audio Central after the season finale this Wednesday Clark remained optimistic for his music’s future and thrilled for Nick Fradiani’s success. “You know, I feel good. I just believe that I’m exactly where I need to be. I cannot possibly, I can’t possibly explain how grateful I am for American Idol and for the judges and for this performance platform that has lifted me up to present good music and, you know, also just my beliefs and I’m just so grateful for being here and I’m really happy for Nick.”

Some fans noticed a bit of headbutting with Scott Borchetta and that seems to be reflected here as Clark seems to admit Scott might find a better working relationship with Nick. “I think it’s a perfect fit. I think it’s perfect, really I do, for him. Nick and Scott work well together, and I just, I really believe it’s exactly what – I just believe it’s exactly where I need to be is where I am right now.”

Clark is thrilled for the opportunities ahead of him and the chance to pursue his love for music. “I’m very excited to get into the music man. I just, I just believe that, I’m addicted to hard work. I really am, and I just can’t wait to get into the music. Because I was already getting into music, but now I’m going to have doors and opportunities,” Clark tells FOX Audio Central.

Idol has opened doors that had never even been there for him before. “Four months ago I was playing on the street. I couldn’t even get in a bar, you know, and I think I’ll maybe be able to pass the bar phase and actually go on tour and record and actually have a career. I believe that. And that’s what I’m excited about.”

Beckham doesn’t plan to take any time off after the show before getting in to his music. “I’m nervous about doing music and there’s not going to be a break, because I don’t like a break. I like just working and doing music. So that’s what I’m going to continue to do.”

Clark’s fans can get ready more from their favorite and he’s ready to make it happen. “I’m excited for the people that are coming to my life and will continue to come into my life and I’ll, you know, make that happen. So I’m going to keep doing music. I can’t help it, and I’m just going to keep working hard because I cant help it, and I look forward to whatever that looks like.”

Congratulations again to Clark Beckham and his success on American Idol 2015. There’s no denying his impact on the season and all the fans he earned through the process. We’re sure he’ll have lots of fun out there ahead of him so keep an eye on Clark.
