BELTON, Mo. -- Before Tate Stevens became a favorite on The X Factor, he was playing gigs all over the country in a band called 'Outlaw Junkies.'

Few know Tate the musician better than two of his former band mates, Steve Koken and Robert Harmon. The trio traveled the country performing at every fair and festival they could find and down every long and dusty road they could travel.

"We've traveled all up and down the country in every little hole -- gone through breakdowns, flat tires, all kinds of stuff," said Harmon. "You do that long enough, you build a trust, you build a relationship."

Harmon and Koken said their ol' band mate has paid his dues and hope he continues to wow the national audience on The X Factor.

"I can easily see him in an area, a full arena," said Harman. "He's an entertainer. People are compelled to watch him. They are going to go see him. They are going to buy tickets."
