Supporting you all the way Chris! I believe you are an honest and genuine person, and your faith will see you thru this! See you in Orlando! Smiling

The entire situation "sucks." I have been a fan of yours since Day One. Money really is the root of all evil. It makes me very sad Sad I wish you and Deanna much luck through the process!

Proud to be a DAUGHTRY fan Smiling

Best of luck to you Chris. I can tell you live your life with integrity and that's what matters most. The truth always wins. I find it very odd and interesting that your former band mates waited THIS long to file a lawsuit when those songs were from your 1st album (minus You Don't Belong) but still. Why NOW? Who knows but don't let the turkeys bring you down! I know you're hurt. I would be too, if my character was being attacked. But hang in there Chris, you're a rock star! Literally! (and figuratively....a truly great person)
Smiling
Cant wait to see you at the shows in my area soon~

Nighthawk,

The four songs referenced in the suit are, "Home", "Breakdown/Conviction", Sinking (some of the lyrics in "Gone" were taken from this song) and they also say that "You Don't Belong" sounds similar to Breakdown.

Mr. Daughtry & Band, I think you are awesome. Don't let the unhappy wannabes get you down. They either want attention or money and they don't deserve either one!!! I just think that you seem like a good family man and have more integrity than a lot of other musicians. Please know that your fans are with you 100 percent!!! Just keep making music and having concerts!!!!

Hi Chris....You and Daughtry Rock!! I along with all your true fans stand behind you.. Looking forward to VIP for Apr.21st Syracuse NY! Love you.. God bless you and your family and the band.....

Saw you guys in Toronto best show ever!!!!! Me and my friends had a blast. Keep smiling, Luv ya Chris, you will always have my support.

chris I have no doubt about your integrity. I met you jan 1995 and you were my best friend even if I wasn't yours. I'm proud of you and miss being able to talk to you. I always knew you would make it big from your first performance at the talent show til I saw you on american idol I always knew. Now I'm the guy who says I went to high school with you and we played football together and now I sound like a stalker...= ) proud of you

hey man your telling the truth GOD BLESS!

Daughtry Rules

Does anybody actually know what the songs this is referring to is? I hear everyone saying Home, but how do they know specifically? Anyway, I know specifically they are referring to Conviction and Breakdown, by Absent Element, which both were combined to become what we know as breakdown now. But what other songs are included?

best of luck chris, you need to prove nothing ...all your fans stand behind you no matter what!! your talant speaks for itself!!! god bless...lindak

Best of luck to you regarding this situation. Any and all who know you, know this is not true!! Seems to me somebody wants something for doing nothing. Stand strong, and you can call all of us as character witnesses.

We stand behind you! Hope you know you have lots of love and support. I'm so sorry you have to even go through this. Very strange they waited so long to do this, makes their claims look even more ridiculous. big hugs!!

The Truth always wins in the end no matter what. Chris you have proven yourself as one awesome songwriter. Sorry you have to go through this, part of business unfortunately.
Best Wishes,
Maria

I agree, why would these ex band members say something now? i think they are just looking for $$$.. Love you chris and i believe you!! Hope all works out for you and ur family!!

Chris, Unfortunately, moments like these come along the journey of fulfilling your dreams. As you've been told from the beginning, "stay true to yourself"...God will do the rest my friend. My prayers are with you, all is well.

I think it is a little strange that they waited so long...if it were true...wouldn't they have said something as soon as the song was released? I think they are upset that Chris went on to do better with others...than with them. It has to hurt though...people you consider(ed) friends..wanting to hurt you and your family. Very Sad..Prayers and best wishes!

"F" them Chris...your fans believe in you....Get your Atty's to go kick some ass!

I stand behind you 100% no matter what happens! I love ya Chris<3 People are so stupid.... Though it may not be in this lifetime, in the end the truth always comes out and that person who cried out against you will get what they deserve. Keep on writin' & God bless!

@clrfldcdaughtry ~ I couldn't have said that better myself. Smiling

When someone makes it "big" there will always be someone else trying to "feed" off of that success. This is the 2nd time something of this nature has come up in Chris's business life.

Music, the best mind-altering substance - gettin' high on D A U G H T R Y forever!!

DAUGHTRY fans are ageless!!! Once a fan, ALWAYS a fan!!!

This blows my mind...someone becomes sucessful and the ones that are left behind become bitter.....Why has it taken so long to come out then if these accusations are true? I believe you chris, my husband and me are huge fans of yours and have been from day one from american idol days, you seem very humble and genuine, I just don't see this having any truth in it. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you get past this small obsticle in your life and career. I got to see you in concert in feb 12 and the band was awsome! Continue with your success and don't let this stumbling block put a sour taste in your mouth. At least you know who your real friends are and who are not......

You are an amazing artist, we've all known this for quite some time now. People are so greedy and money hungry it's disgusting. Let those people go ahead with their lawsuit because in the end you still have all your fans, your family and your talent. TEAM DAUGHTRY! Smiling

I am fresh off the BTS tour from a date in Pgh,PA at the Benedum Center on April 4, 2012...I am having a difficult time believing that someone would stand in front of thousands of people and recount the story of how Home was written. There was no mention of anyone collaborating on that song with Chris..and I believe him!
Chris shares many a song writing credit on his three CD releases. Not giving credit where it is due does not seem to be a personality trait of this young man to me. Rather the converse appears to be true..he is excited to work with singer/songwriters in creating meaningful lyrics that capture the imagination of the young and old!
If former members of the band he once worked with have taken it upon themselves to file a lawsuit; it is incumbent upon them to prove their allegations. From where I stand; I am having the proverbial "reasonable doubt" they will be able...six years LATER, make such a case against HOME. To me, HOME will always be Chris Daughtry's "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" signature song--SINGULAR in nature with reference to who was present when these lyrics came to be born..a solitary man, his guitar and a dream!
