Beckham claims to have lost everything before winning Idol.

Chayce Beckham (@chaycebeckhammusic) has shared a post.

Beckham has been very open about his addiction to drugs and alcohol, and how he sat rock bottom before winning big on Idol. Shortly after the May 2021 finale, he confessed to USA Today that his life before the show was terrible.

He said that getting to a point where you lose everything from your girlfriend, your house that you live in together, your dogs, your car, your license, and you almost kill yourself in a DUI wrecks your life at the end of your rope there.

During a May 2022 interview with CMT, the singer admitted that she just fell into this terrible pit of like terrible energy. I burned a lot of bridges, made a lot of terrible mistakes, scared off a lot of my friends, and had to return home with my parents. My girlfriend of seven years left me, and I had to take out all of our belongings and return to my mom and dads' house, which was frustrating.

Beckham's outlook shifted somewhat from that of a previous episode, although he conceded that it made him more depressed, which prompted him to drink more.

CMT reported that he ruined his vehicle and almost killed himself. Anything I loved or cherished, I had either thrown it away or burned that bridge. The only people I had left were my parents.

Beckham was picked up from jail by his mom, and while he was kept in his room for several days following his arrest, his parents began encouraging him to watch American Idol. In fact, he claimed that they forced him to participate.

He said it's the greatest thing that's ever happened to me in my life. It's like getting out of my room and singing in front of Katy and Luke because that changed my life for the better. I'd never believed in myself enough to do it.
