Henderson isn't/wasn't much of a big star because he started acting and singing in 2009, he started out by landing a (very,very,very) small role in NBC's Friday Night Lights, heck it was just a cameo but since then the role gave Logan a peak at acting and made him want to chase his dreams to entertain people by acting and singing, BTR changed his life forever, YOU GO LOGAN!
