The 37-year-old is a road worker from Missouri, and he was voted the winner over Carly Rose Sonenclar and third place act, Fifth Harmony. Stevens, who is a country singer, has won a $5 million recording contract and a Pepsi-produced debut video set to premiere at the 2013 Grammy Awards on February 10th.
Stevens said on the show, "This is the best day of my life. First and foremost I've got to thank the man upstairs for taking care of me.
"My family, all the country music fans, God bless you and thank-you so very much for all the votes. This is the best day of my life."
X Factor judge - and Stevens' mentor - LA Reid said, "You deserve this, I am proud to work with you and I think you represent the X Factor really, really well. On behalf of myself, Simon and all the other judges, congratulations."
