The 30-year-old Mississippi native beat 10-year-old soprano singer Jackie Evancho of Pittsburgh, taking home the $1 million prize.

"I'm not going to be a millionaire for long!" he tells Us. "A lot of the money is going to go to the community and charities and my grandparents and family that need this. You know, I don't need that much."

He plans on building his grandparents a new house.

"I want that house made just for them!" he says, adding that he also may even surprise his girlfriend with a ring.
