Scott Couch -- Nashville

  Gallatin's Ben Briley was in the bottom three Thursday night on American Idol.  The Gallatin native, who clearly has talent, ended the night less than a hundred thousand votes outside of the top ten and American Idol's Summer Tour.  

  After Wednesday night's performance where he sang Elton John's "Bennie and the Jets," Briley said he expected to be in the bottom three.  Briley said he took a risk and tried to show a different side of himself.  In the end,  the risk didn't pay off. 

  Briley, who says he wants to pursue music for a living, should get a nice boost from his time on American Idol.
