Nashville rocker Colton Dixon—booted last week from American Idol's top seven—told reporters he really appreciated Carrie Underwood reaching out to him.

And Colton says he likes that Carrie—like him—doesn't shy away from saying "God."

Carrie tweeted to Colton after his elimination: "You are SO amazingly talented! God has blessed you so much and will continue to do so!"

Colton's reaction: "I just wanted to say thanks," he told reporters Friday morning (April 20).

"You know, she has done so well since American Idol and I love that she doesn't shy away from her faith, either," he said.

"So, it's nice to see someone doing what I want to do away from the show give me good encouragement, and it was amazing to see that and I really do appreciate it."
