Dexter Roberts' cover of "Muckalee Creek Water" was the only American Idol song not to chart on iTunes this week.

But don't expect the country guy from Alabama to express any remorse over deciding to sing the Luke Bryan song the week he was eliminated from the show.

After all, the song suggestion came from fellow contestant and Alabamian C.J. Harris, a friend of Dexter's even before the show.

"I was so pumped up about it," Dexter said during his Friday exit interview with the media. "I sing it all the time in shower. I think C.J. was tired hearing it and just wanted me to get it out of my system by singing it on stage.

"As soon as I saw it on list, I didn't look at any other song."
