MORE ABOUT DAUGHTRY:

     

Since rising to prominence on the fifth season of American Idol, Daughtry frontman, Chris Daughtry has released four albums, all of which reached the Billboard Top Ten and have combined sales over 8 million copies in the U.S.

Daughtry’s self-titled debut was the best-selling album of 2007, which contained four top twenty hit singles including the Grammy-nominated smash It’s Not Over. Leave This Town also reached Number One in 2009, while 2011’s Break the Spell was certified gold. His group’s most recent record, 2013’s Baptised, featured the platinum-selling Waiting for Superman, which the singer points to as a turning point in his song writing.

“It was a nice hybrid of where we had been and where we’re going, and it opened my eyes a bit,” says Daughtry. “Everything was so serious and doom and gloom, and ‘You broke my heart,’ but we never saw ourselves as those people outside the music—onstage we were always joking around. That helped me wrap my head around the fact that we can be light-hearted and still be us. And that really changed the way I approach the songs in general.”
