Newly minted X Factor champ Tate Stevens is making good on his win.
The 37-year-old highway worker from Belton, Mo., who clinched his victory during the show's season-two finale last month, has inked a deal to write and record his debut album.
Per published reports, the country crooner, whose solid and steady performance on the show week to week made him a heavy fave to win, has signed with Syco Music/RCA Records Nashville, and his album is due this fall.
No doubt, mentor L.A. Reid is beaming with pride!
Here's what else went down:
Tatted Up: Justin Bieber showed off yet another new tattoo.
No Baby Mamas: Sorry, guys, but the Oxygen reality show All My Babies' Mamas has been dropped.
Big Money: Megan Fox and hubby Brian Austin Greene won a whopping $620 in their legal victory against a paparazzo.
