The X Factor
All three guys originally auditioned for the show as solo artists. While they were all impressive in their auditions, they didn't make the top 40. Knowing that all three were good and deserved another chance, the judges offered to put them together in a band, resulting in them making it to the Four Chair Challenge phase of the competition with Simon Cowell as their mentor. Kane Brown was also asked to be part of this group, but declined to pursue his solo career. The band ended up taking fourth place on the show.
