Daughtry - In the course of only five years, Chris Daughtry has had more than his share of career highlights. The singer, songwriter, and musician from North Carolina has released back-to-back No. 1 albums, the 4x-platinum DAUGHTRY (which became the fastest-selling rock debut in Soundscan history) and 2009's platinum Leave This Town. DAUGHTRY has scored four No. 1 Top 40 hits ("It's Not Over, "Home," "Feels Like Tonight," and "No Surprise"), earned four Grammy Award nominations (including "Best Rock Album" for DAUGHTRY), won four American Music Awards, and brought its electrifying live show to all corners of the world, including sold-out arenas in South Africa, Singapore, and The Philippines.
Overall, Chris feels that Break The Spell, which is being released five years from the day that DAUGHTRY'S debut was released, is the most uplifting and hopeful album the band has recorded. "It's not so dark," he says. "I'm not only singing about the bad days. And with many of the songs being up-tempo, it's going to really fun to play live."
Live, of course, is where DAUGHTRY really shines. This band has always made its bones on stage and the coming year will be no exception as they hit the road to support Break the Spell. "Bon Jovi, U2, and Aerosmith are certainly big influences on us musically and just seeing how they can still go out and play for the masses after all these years is really inspiring," Chris says. "Let's be honest, we didn't set out to do this to play clubs. No rock band ever sets out saying they want to play clubs for the rest of their career. If they do, they're full of it. I want to play arenas. I would love to play stadiums. This album is a step in the right direction."
3 Doors Down - Since forming in 1995, Mississippi rock quintet 3 Doors Down (vocalist Brad Arnold, lead guitarist Chris Henderson, bassist Todd Harrell, drummer Greg Upchurch and guitarist Chet Roberts) has sold more than 16 million albums worldwide, garnered three Grammy nominations, two American Music Awards, and five BMI Pop Awards for songwriting, including BMI’s coveted "Songwriter of the Year" award.
