Biography

McLeansville NC, United States

Daughtry is a band from the McLeansville, North Carolina area that former American Idol contestant Chris Daughtry formed in 2006. They’re perhaps best known for their top 40 hits “It’s Not Over” and “Waiting for Superman”, those songs along with others receiving strong international airplay. Daughtry’s self-titled debut album was released on November 21, 2006 by RCA and 19 Entertainment and quickly sold over a million copies. The band has incorporated influences from artists as well as contemporary and music.

Chris Daughtry (born December 26, 1979) is an American rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter. He was the fourth-place finalist on the highly publicized fifth season of American Idol, eliminated from the competition on May 10, 2006. After his fallout from Idol, he was given a record deal by RCA Records. His self-titled debut album sold over 300,000 copies it’s first week, and, with more than one million copies sold after just five weeks of release, ‘Daughtry’ became the fastest selling debut rock album in history.

In the ninth week of release for ‘Daughtry’, the album also reached number one on the Billboard charts. Chris Daughtry is the third most successful American Idol contestant in the history of the show in terms of record sales, listed just behind Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood (who both won their seasons). He is the most successful contestant from his own season and also the most successful non-winner or non-runner up artist ever. At the 50th Grammy Awards ceremony, he was nominated for 4 awards, including ‘Best Rock Album’ as well as ‘Best Rock Song’ for “It’s Not Over”.

    Дебютник оказался настолько сильным, мощным и хитовым, что последующие работы группы невольно сравниваешь с ним. И тут, понятное дело, весь последующий материал не дотягивает до одноименного альбома. Просто потому, что он был слишком и слишком офигенным.

    Daughtry is one of the best singers to NOT win Amer Idol and I don't even watch it! That show is idiotic. Most of the "winners" are all has-beens already, except for Kelly Clarkson. Lambert didn't win either and he's touring with Queen for crying out loud!

    Finally got the chance to listen to this album...it was NOT worth the wait. Probably one of the most insepid, uninteresting albums I've ever listened to. What the hell man, you played with Slash...unbelievable!
