Daughtry Stays True to His Roots
The self-titled album that introduced the band called DAUGHTRY -- both fronted by the singer and songwriter Chris Daughtry -- has been inside the Top 10 since its arrival on November 21st, proving that controversial vote-down on American Idol did not hurt his popularity one bit.
On his album, the distinctive hard-rocker stays true to his roots, enlisting top-flight collaborators like Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson, Brent Smith of Shinedown ("There And Back Again"), Mitch Allan of SR-71 ("All These Lives"), Hinder songwriter-producer Brian Howes (3 songs, including "What I Want," featuring guest Slash on guitar), and Five For Fighting producer-songwriter Greg Wattenberg (the first single, "It's Not Over").
His hit single "It's Not Over" is enjoying major rotation simultaneously at three formats: Hot AC, Top 40 and Active Rock. DAUGHTRY has already sold over 1 million copies in just 4 weeks.
