The 19-year-old Coby Swift from Midfield, Texas, performed on the show during Sunday's Hollywood Week episode. Swift explains:

"I never sang in front of a lot of people before. I ain't never taken a day of voice lessons before in my life. I can't sing like anybody else. I'm me — I'm Colby Swift — I ain't trying to be like anybody else."

PERFECT PERFORMANCE

He sang Freddy Fender's "Before The Next Teardrop Falls and clearly made an impression on veteran singer, Luke Bryan.

Bryan asked Swift which shoe size he wears, to which the talented young man replied: "whatever fits."

After the performance, Swift couldn't believe that he received a standing ovation from the audience and judges – including Katey Perry and Lionel Richie.

A HOLEY SITUATION

During the performance, however, Bryan noticed that both Swift boots "have holes in the bottom of 'em," and pointed it out to Richie.

Bryan asked Swift which shoe size he wears, to which the talented young man replied: "whatever fits." This nearly broke Bryan's heart.

THE PERFECT GIFT

Bryan removed his own boots on the spot and handed them to Swift, saying, "Well, I'm a 12D, and I'll solve that little problem." He jokingly added:

"So Colby, those boots are made for walking to the next round."

Swift was carried away in the moment, shouting, "I got Luke Bryan's boots!" before moonwalking off the stage.

Fans know that Bryan has a good heart, especially after he shared a beautiful message in the form of a song about the good in the people, titled "Most People Are Good."
