American Idol finalist Michael Sarver is no stranger to cameras or live performances, but it's a whole different ball game when you're doing it for a hometown crowd.

Lucky for us, he was on his game. A select portion of Gator 99.5's listening audience got the chance to see Michael and his band perform during the inaugural Gator 99.5 Backstage Pass concert series. And he did NOT disappoint. We'll be giving you tastes of the show all week long, and even give you the chance to watch the whole thing.

Since he's playing for the hometown crowd, we thought it would be best to start off with "Place I Call Home," Michael's tribute to his roots right here in Southwest Louisiana. You'll be able to find the cut on his upcoming album, "Begin Again," which is headed to iTunes and stores soon!
