"Good luck Taylor," screamed a Taylor Davis fan.

There…

"Good Luck Taylor! We miss you," yelled a fan.

Everywhere!

"Lee County Volleyball loves Taylor Davis! Vote Taylor Davis on August 2nd,"shouted Lee County High School volleyball players.

Taylor Davis mania is spreading, even across state lines.

"Go Taylor from Atlanta and Miami," said two of his fans.

Davis has taken South Georgia and beyond by storm, so much in fact that the Cask and Kilt Irish Pub in Albany will host a Taylor Davis watch party Tuesday.

The idea came from a customer who posted their thoughts on the pub's Facebook page.

The Owners of the pub thought it was a great idea.

"Well Taylor Davis being a local guy here, that's a big thing for Southwest Georgia. We knew that and are 100% behind him," said pub worker Joel Smith.

Come 9 o'clock tonight the Cask and Kilt will be full of Taylor Davis fans and they can choose to watch him sing from one of four TV's, even a seventy inch one in the back.

"We'll pick up the TV's to watch, we'll go ahead and set up our monitors, computers and telephone lines so we can vote for Taylor Davis as much as possible and give him all the support that we can," said Smith.

Davis will be singing his heart out Tuesday but he will need the votes of his fans to move on in the competition to become the next superstar.

The owner of the Cask and Kilt is urging everybody to come out to the pub tonight to support Davis and help him move on to the next round.

Taylor will appear on America's Got Talent on NBC at 9 o'clock.
