How did you become a fan??

I was just wondering and wanting to hear stories of how we all became Daughtry fans. Was there one song in particular that did "it" for you and you were a fan from then on out?

I'm sure a lot of us out here became fans from watching Chris on "American Idol"....as for myself, i cannot stand that show. I'd heard "It's not Over" on the radio a couple of times and i liked it, but what really did "it" for me was one day i was actually watching "American Idol".....i was only watching it because Jon Bon Jovi was the guest coach and it was "Bon Jovi night" on "AI" and i remember during the commercials (during this one commercial in particular) they were playing Daughtry's "Home" (though i didn't know what the song was at the time, i just knew i loved it). I got online and did a lyric search with what lyrics i knew from the commercial, found out who sang it, got the CD, and that was that!!! so i credit "Home" with making me a Daughtry fan!!!

Replies (63)

I GUESS SINCE IM NOT MARRIED AND NEVER HAVE BEEN, BUT JUST WOULD NOT EVEN MATTER, CAUSE EITHER WAY MY MAN WOULD JUST HAVE TO ACCEPT IT, I'M AROUND TO THE END!!! I DO NOT SEE DAUGHTRY NOT BEING THE NEXT BON JOVI!!! I REALLY BELIEVE IN THEM, AND I AM ALMOST 100% THEY WILL BE AROUND FOR AS LONG AS THEY CAN, OR AS LONG AS THEY WANT TO BE!!! THEY ARE HUGE NOW AND I THINK THEY ALWAYS WILL BE CAUSE THE MUSIC AND THAT INCREDIBLE VOICE CHRIS HAS AND THE PASSION THESE GUYS HAVE FOR WRITING MUSIC AND PLAYING MUSIC IS WHAT KEEPS THEM WANTING MORE AND US!!!!! AND THEY DONT SEEM EFFECTED BY LUST AND DRUGS AND ALCOHOL THEY ARE VERY TRUE TO FAMILY FRIENDLY ROCK CONCERTS!!!! AND THAT MY FRIENDS SPEAKS MOUNTAINS OVER THESE NASTY BANDS THAT THINK THEY HAVE TO BE RUDE CRUDE TO BE HUGE. SO, DAUGHTRY ROCKS

becky

My husband just asked me if I think that I will still be this big of a fan in a year or two.. Of course, immediately I answered "Absolutely!" Funny! He then asked if it was their music or Chris.. lol! I said "It's all of them. Have you listened to the words!" Smiling He didn't ask anymore questions after that....

Loved Chris (and Ace Young) Immediately, my husband said that's the guy who's gonna win!
And although he didn't win on the show....look at all he's accomplished! He came out of it as THEE WINNER I think we can all agree on that!

~~Can never get enough of Daughtry~~

the first time chris opened his mouth to sing on american idol which was the audition. i about lost it. the only singer that gives me butterflies in my stomach and still does. from then on i was hooked to the television until his last appearance. finally daughtry came out and ive been listening to the cd since release. with the job i do i always hated being on the computer any more than i had to...finally i couldnt take it so just recently i joined the website. i have been a die hard since day 1 tho! the guys are amazing!!

Long long ago,
When I was surfing through channels,
I heard some bald rocker sang on AI.
I didn't know who that was,
But it was amazing.

Soon after,
I forgotten about it.

Later on,
When I was using my computer,
Back facing the TV,
MTV played It's Not Over,
And I kinda too notice,
(normally it doesn't work like that)

So yeah,
It started like that,
Later on I got to know that he was that person I heard on AI.

Amazing,
I guess that's the good thing about bands,
That have that special thing that separates they from others. Laughing out loud

ps. this is my 1st post Laughing out loud

I really do LOVE Joey. It's almost like Chris is the first love that you NEVER really get over and Joey is that new passionate fresh kind of love. So I love them both, but Joey is my current man. Wendy can take my leftovers of Chris. Ha, ha. But like I told you before Wendy, you have a lot more people to compete with for him as a boyfriend, including his wife. See Joey isn't married, although I am so I guess this is kind of a moot point huh?

Ok, let me preface this by saying a few things about what attracts me to men.
I LOVE BALD GUYS!!! I LOVE MEN IN COWBOY HATS!!!! AND I LOVE A FAMILY MAN!!!! So two years ago when this Hot bald guy in a cowboy hat came across my television screen and they were telling his story on American Idol, his wife was crying and saying how much he had done for her and her kids and how much she just wanted his dream to come true, I can say, they did a GREAT job of baiting me. I was rooting for this guy. But then, he opened his mouth and sang "The letter" with such confidence and greatness that I was then and there HOOKED!!!! Hooked on Chris that is. I was so... hooked that I got on message boards for the first time in my life. It was because of that, that I was able to get some tickets that were held back for members of Daughtry Official and I was able to see them live in such an intimate setting (Birdy's in Indianapolis) and when I saw the members of the band walking around the bar, talking to the fans and signing autographs, I WAS TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH THIS BAND. There are so..... many bands out there that have great talent and are marketed REALLY well, but it is this bands "down-to-earth" attitudes and there complete appreciation and dedication to their fans that will ALWAYS be "it" for me.

It definitely started with AI. When I saw him audition. My friend, Amy and I cried when he got voted off. It was like seeing a family member get booted. The addiction has only gotton worse since this time, however. Now, since the VIP in Indy and my upcoming VIP in Milwaukee, I can't stop thinking about them!

**enjoyed the spirit of Chris´ voice in Stuttgart, Jan 23rd 2010 **
**faszinated of each minute at the Nickelback opening gig J

when I watched him perform on AI. Although am not a AI fan, (my sister is crazy about it) I watched one episode and saw Chris perform and I thought to myself WHAT- this guy should win! Kinda like I felt for Bo Bice on season 4. I hoped that Chris would win but I was secretly relieved that he didn't actually win coz then there's less pressure and more space to develop one's style - I didn't want him to end up washed out like a few previous winners, but still I knew from that moment that we would be hearing from him for a long time to come coz there was this fire in his eyes that showed a deep passion to succeed in music. Anyways, I'm glad I was proved right and he has been breakin records on the way up. The first single I listened to was Home and glad to say I got hooked!

It's good to be alive!

~~*Gloria*~~

When I saw Chris on AI. I instantly fell in love and wanted him to win. When he didnt, I was upset. BUT, Look how successful he is now! And.. winning would have pushed him into a pop category and he wouldnt be as independent and such..he'd be a solo act.

Then, after Idol, I heard "Its Not Over" on the radio.. always missed who it was by or what the name was... I had to guess and ask around "Who sings that 'this love is killin me, but you're the only one' song?" hahah.. I remember IMing my friend to ask...

Then my mom told me she had ordered Daughtry tickets for the 8/12 show in Springfield for us.. knowing how much I loved him on Idol. I never gave a thought to want to see them in concert, which I had my opportunity when they played with Staind and Nickelback last summer which I missed. So I got started a little late, but its better than never starting at all.

I got chills when Daughtry took the stage last summer. Not to mention, 12 stones opened and they were awesome! But all in all, minus the 109 degree weather which i had a heatstroke in..which was worth it.. the concert was amazing and I knew I was definitely a Daughtry fan FOR LIFE.

Now I'm going on my 4th show. Not much, but I got started 8/12 of last year, and I live in the middle of nowhere. They dont come around these parts much!

I saw the album out on ITunes and decided to listen to it, liked what I heard and downloaded some of the songs. Then later went out and saw the CD at the store and bought it, I realized I liked a LOT of the songs, so I went back and downloaded the whole album from ITunes then googled Daughtry and quite a bit of idol stuff came up then saw DO and came here........ and I sota never left!!!

~~in these ever changing days your the one thing that remains~~

I loved his audition and how Deanna was rooting for him so much! Then the love grew when he sang some of my fav each week----Especially Renegade by styx and wanted by bon jovi. I never looked back!

Ok here is a short version of how I became an obsessive Daughtry Fan.

Seeing as though I don't have a tv I never new about chris at all, until I heard Home on the radio and got overwelmed by emotion from song. So of course I got onto itunes and on a whim bought the entire album (normally I would lazily only buy whats popular). And now I am a complete addict to Daughtry, listening to his album 3 times a day, every day and going through every single interview, AI performance, and Daughtry concert I could get my greedy hands on. You know they are amazing if they can transform a very casual music listener to a complete Freak for Daughtry.

~Cali's Obsessive Fan

i seen him walk into the AI studio-my heart skipped a beat.then he sang!!!! omg,can he sing!!!! he was my fave audition,and my fave on AI!!!! he still shoulda won.but it dont matter-hes amazing,and has a wonderful career-which he deserves 100%!

Like many, I attached myself to him when he performed on AI. I blew up the phones and was shocked and angry when he was eliminated. This could of been a blessing for him, look where he is now. He has really made a name for himself with his beautiful lyrics and powerful voice. I saw Daughtry's band in Orlando at Mardi Gras, Universal Studios. I was packed like sardines. It was all worth it though. I just got tickets for the Tampa show with Bon Jovi in April, CAN'T WAIT !!. He is a special person as all of the band members are with talent and personality that make us all gravitate to them. I will be a Daughtry fan forever !!

from the very beginning. I was drawn to Chris with the commercial that played before Season 5 of Chris singing at his audition. I was like OMG who is this guy, he is awesome!! So I couldn't wait to see him and see if he made it. Then all the clips with him and his family and Deanna was just so supportive and cute, I just loved everytihng about him during AI. I was also so proud everytime he got up and sang, I couldn't wait to boast about him at work or to my brothers who also watch AI. As soon as I heard the CD and began learning more about all of the guys, I fell in love with Daughtry, the band. All of the stories I hear about people meeting them and seeing them on interviews and seeing how awesome they are to the fans and how loyal they are to their families, OMG what is NOT to love?!

Proud to be a fan and will be until I die!!

I started listen to them after hearing the "over you" and I was in love (A) Daughtry is the best, Thats just how it is =) <33

When I first saw Chris on Idol I became a fan and fell in love with his amazing voice. After Idol and the cd release I was wondering about a tour so I jumped online and searched and that's when I found this site. I realized that the guys were coming to Louisville, KY so I was dead set on going. I was so upset when I tried to get tickets and they sold out so quick. I wasn't about to give up! I got on ebay and got lucky! I purchased two tickets. I met Chris and J.P. at that show and it was awesome!! From then I was a Die-Hard crazy hardcore DAUGHTRY fan! I wanted to go to another show soooo bad so I entered for VIP. I didn't care how far I had to travel to see them again. I was in major shock when I received an email from RCA Karen saying I was the winner for the show in Atlanta. Road trip!!! That was my second show and I've been to three more since. #6-Daughtry/Bon Jovi! Woo Hooo!

I liked him since the start , he was so cute but when i heard his voice i have fallen for him ... he is so cute and i'm still mad that he took the 4th place i was so sad i cried all day ..
i wish all the best for him

xoxoxox

To be yourself in a world that is constantly

when I saw his audition. for one because he was AMAZING, and 2 because he was a homeboy fron NC:) The first time I heard INO on the radio, i completely freaked! I was like "OMG IT"S CHRIS!!!!!" now I love the whole band! they put on an amazing show, and I can't wait for "pure bigness" Smiling lol

I became a fan of Chris, the moment I heard his voice on AI. Of coarse his looks are what caught my eyes first off. Then when he did his audition, it was instant.
The moment I knew I loved the group Daughtry was when I was sitting in the waiting room of a Hamilton hospital waiting for my father to awaken from a coma.
The soothing sounds of these talented artists softly playing over the little speaker in the waiting room brought me so much peace during a difficult time.

I knew he was from season 5 of AI and loved him .But i would have to say when I heard Home on AI season 6 as the goodbye song. From that moment on I have loved Daughtry.

I was so shocked when he got voted off american idol... i was like in depression. Then when i heard that he had a cd coming out i was there the first day it came out to buy it!!!

The audition did it for me for Chris! Fell in love that moment. My best friend and i used to watch the first few weeks together and she still makes fun of me how my face would light up when he sang Smiling

As we did not get to see AI here in Germany (got our own talent shows, but the outcome is nothing compared to Chris Daughtry & Kelly Clarkston) I just found out about the magic of Daughtry's music on my way home from work. My fav. radio station YOU FM played "INO" right after Nickelback.
I was caught! Arriving home I switched on my computer and googled Daughtry. Finding DO site I kept listening for ages and every single day to their videos & blogs before I decided to actually be part of DO.
Awesome to read through all the post and interesting where AI is aired around the globe.

Goes right back to that first AI audition for me too - when Chris caught my attention and I loved that he seemed such a nice 'normal' family man. As well as liking what he did.
And he just impressed me more and more as the weeks went by - and he continues to do so! He goes up in my opinion continually!

I never had heard of Absent Element before, but knew the moment I saw Chris' audition he was going places!! Smiling If not with his band for sure on his own! That very first time I saw him I liked him and can still remember him coming out of the audition room hugging Deanna! I thought wow what a great couple after seeing all the videos of her talking about Chris and how he came to audition! I wanted him to win of course and only watched to see how far he would go. I loved how he stayed true to himself and not falling for the "pop" garbage that others do. I loved all the covers that he did and couldn't wait to see what he was going to sing next! AI has not been the same since the day he was voted off. I still remember on the AI tour seeing him and how he was the only one that got the most applause out of everyone and when he asked if he came back to Chicago would we come see him!!! I thought ok, one day he will be back!! Smiling Something to look forward to. I couldn't wait to get the cd when it came out. I loved it instantly!

And as far as the band I loved them after I saw Daughtry in concert for the first time last year at the Double Door in Chicago. Got hooked right away and had to have MORE!!!! They are such a great group of guys and of course so nice as well! I loved finding out all the other background stuff on them. They all have their own talents besides rocking us with Daughtry! I love the whole band of Daughtry now, not just Chris alone!!! They are just the best!!! Smiling

Can't wait to see what's in store for 2008!!!!

*Daughtry...always makes me smile Smiling!!!*

**DAUGHTRY ALWAYS MAKES ME SMILE!! :)**

From the day of the audition I knew that Chris was going to make it! Of course we all did! My hubby said the same thing he has an awesome voice Lisa... I said oh yeah he should def win!

When he didn't I was dissappointed but knew everything happens for a reason I have always belived that! Besides I also knew just as the rest of us did he was destined for more than AI....Blessing in disguise? Oh yes!!!!

I am very proud to be a DAUGHTRY fan too...

Look at him/them now!!!! YEAH!!!

HUGS

HUGS, LOVE and GOD Bless!"

I was a fan since the day he auditioned. He had an amazing voice, plus he was very good looking. I never missed a show when he was on. Even in the ER (severe allergic reaction), it was an AI night. I made my parents help me get to the TV just so I could see him sing. They will never let me down on that one. I was outraged the day he was voted off, it didn't seem possible. But he didn't have to win AI because look at where he's at today. Maybe him not winning was a blessing in disguise. I did go out and buy the album the day it came out. It never gets old to me. Its a stress reliever on a lot of days coming home from work! A year later he has 3 AMA's, People Choice Award noms, Grammy noms, and an awesome album and band! I'm proud to be a Daughtry fan and can't wait for what the next year brings!!

When I first heard the man sing! I knew instantly he was GOIN' PLACES and I was hooked for life.
(My first time hearing him sing was the "Wanted Dead or Alive" night.) I just about died and went to heaven right there and then.

There and back again for Daughtry in 2007:
Troy, NYC, 6 Flags, GMA, Mass, Albany, Mass, Newark, NYC, NJ, PA, CT.
Looking forward to March!

DAUGHTRY music (recorded & live) is my happy place! The BEST music & musicians in the industry, and THEE BEST voice on this planet! Nice guys too. Nuff said:)

well, I heard Chris during the audition for Idol. Thought he was cute and had a great voice. Then saw him perform "Wanted Dead of Alive" (his 1st AI performance in the top 24) and thought "MAN! this guy rocks!"

The biggest performance however HAS to be "Hemmorghage." I mean, Chris completely nailed it! I remember thinking 'this guy could make it to the finale!' My parents missed his performance that day so I sent them via email the performance saying "Check out Chris' awesome performance!!"

the next few days I caught a cold and stayed home on that Friday to gain strength because I was going to NYC early that Saturday morning. I wasn't 100% sick and no one was home so I started BELTING OUT "Hemmorhage" all day long. My brother came home and heard me singing without me knowing and told my mom I wasn't sick at all Sticking out tongue haha

long story short, I fell in love with Chris' background, his family, his talent, the determination, the grounded state of mind, gorgeous brown eyes and his love for music. Smiling LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT!

I had been watching AI since the first season when Kelly Clarkson won. So I have watched every season of AI after. I was instantly hooked on Chris' voice from the first time I saw him on AI during the auditions. As soon as I saw him, I thought he's cute LOL!!! Then he sang and I screamed OMG he Better make it to the next round!!!!! I watched the show and voted for him every week. Then when he was voted off, I thought it was rigged!!! There was no way that Chris should have been voted off. Everyone thought he deserved to win. I thought about boycotting the show!!! But in the end I didn't LOL! At the time when Chris was on the show, I was mad that he didn't win. But as we(the fans) all know, Chris and the band have rocked this year. They played 265 shows this year. That means they only have a 100 days off the entire year,. Daughtry will have Grammy's coming their way soon!!! Smiling
