Who can possibly forget that rocker rebel from last season's 'American Idol', Chris Daughtry? Well, for those of you who became fans with every passing week, you will be rewarded in the form of a brand new CD from Chris to be released on November 21st. The new CD, simply called Daughtry is said to be a very good first release with original songs sung only as Chris can sing them. He's maintained a very strong fan base and made a decision early on to pursue a career as a solo artist, rather than fronting a band, even though he was offered several opportunities to do so. It will be interesting to see how well he does and how well this album sells. The album can be pre-ordered right not on Amazon . I'll be keeping an eye on this one to see if and when it begins rising up the charts. Previous contestants from 'American Idol' have done very well for themselves, even though they didn't make it to the finale. Many have gotten recording contracts or have appeared on Broadway and in feature films. This show has proven to be a great stepping stone for people wanting to break into show business. I can't wait for the next season to begin early next year.
