Details of Chris Daughtry and the Ticket Luck value
Christopher Adam "Chris" Daughtry (born December 26, 1979) is an American rock singer-songwriter and guitarist who is the lead vocalist of Daughtry, a popular rock band formed by him in 2006. He is perhaps best known as the fourth-place finalist on the highly publicized fifth season of American Idol, eliminated from the competition on May 10, 2006.
After his departure from Idol, his band's self-titled debut album sold more than 1 million copies after just 5 weeks of release, becoming the fastest-selling debut rock album in Soundscan history, and so far outselling his fellow season 5 contestants' (Kellie Pickler, Katharine McPhee, Elliott Yamin and the season winner Taylor Hicks) debut albums.
In its ninth week of release, the album reached number 1 on the Billboard charts, edging out the Dreamgirls soundtrack. He is currently the best-selling Idol contestant who was neither the winner nor runner-up of their season. His new single 'Home' is currently being used as the final send-off for the season 6 contestants.
Daughtry was born in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina. His parents Pete and Sandra Daughtry reside in Charlottesville, Virginia, where Daughtry was raised before he relocated to McLeansville outside of Greensboro, North Carolina. His brother, Kenneth, resides in Victoria, Virginia.
In his spare time, he's an artist, specializing in drawing and painting, and he read comic books avidly. At the age of 16, Daughtry started taking singing seriously as a professional musician and became a performer with other rock bands during high school. It was while than that Chris appeared in two stage productions: The Wiz and Peter Pan. He graduated from Fluvanna High School in Palmyra, Virginia in 1998. While paying his dues, Daughtry's first job was a service worker at a car dealership at Greensboro's Crown Honda, in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Inspired by Bo Bice, Daughtry auditioned for American Idol in Denver, Colorado with The Boxtops' "The Letter"; he was portrayed as a young rocker with Southern and hard rock influences. He passed the audition by a split decision: approved by Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson, disapproved by Simon Cowell, as he thought Chris at that time was too robotic.
After leaving American Idol, Daughtry traveled the talk show circuit, post-season promotion that has become increasingly commonplace for non-winners as American Idol progressed through the years. He made appearances on The Tonight Show, Total Request Live, and The Today Show. He also appeared on Live with Regis and Kelly and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, in which he performed "Wanted Dead or Alive"?his track on the American Idol Season Five: Encores CD.
