We welcome the lead singer of the band -- -- -- Chris Daughtry didn't really such a nice guy.
-- -- reach a decision thanks very much I mean that you know it's not only your singing it is the fact that you just.
You're somebody that a lot of people can identify without their because you're not you don't seem to be a stuck up superstar.
Well I think thing.
A lot of that goes to the fact that we surround ourselves with -- people our families send.
We don't forget that and our families keep us grounded -- is that you know that's Arabs and actually everybody that I know who's who's somewhat of a celebrity even even -- -- C delivered he's like like nasal everything.
If -- grounded with your family if you if you would rather spend a night -- your kid watching a movie than going out to on the town -- -- absolutely absolutely -- the bottom -- now we mentioned the group Chris Daughtry.
You were essentially the group before I mean now the group is actually much more port talking about spreading right -- little bit right.
That the band itself is becoming more important well wounded the first record we had.
A deadline and and we had to.
Get the record out.
Before we were able to even -- the band members and so.
What's the record was out we hit the road for two and a half almost three years.
You know that was the band that -- that was what people you know heard from us every night that was what we wanted people here on this next record so.
You know we did a lot of riding on the road together we we wrote a lot over the summer and and we made the record together with a lot of fun and obviously the first of all did you know when you didn't -- -- -- a winner that you would have such great success or did you think that since you -- a winner you know is all over all go back to do when I was you know certainly it didn't my initial.
Reasoning for going -- on the show is to get more gigs so it.
If if I left the show and was just able to pay my bills.
Play and you know clubs around the country I would have been happy so pretty -- so -- so I didn't I didn't expect.
The success that we had put and certainly not disappointed until your next burden in monitoring these guys and figure you're things that when when you saw him play even though we didn't become.
One of the top you know top winners in the thing did you realize you have -- career.
And I thought would be outraged fans couldn't believe when he was voted out this let's just -- so they're very excited about and and we knew already that you had a huge fan base and that it's just grounded the years with the -- -- it.
Also great to be able to when you have that power world of being a celebrity to be able to spread the wealth now you're spreading it to your to your.
Bigger band as well as you spread -- your family and your whole community well I mean.
People that is have seen our show for the past couple years they know it's not a one man show.
And and they deserve it as much as idea I mean they're working.
Just as hard every night and there their fantastic man but they're also like my brother so.
It's you know we I probably spend more time -- them.
Then I do -- -- so.
It they deserve where where are you going now in what direction do you see yourself and your -- go one.
You know this this record certainly.
Touches on a few different elements that bit more on the last record but at the same time.
It doesn't alienate -- fan base on what they expect from us so.
I think you're gonna still hear what.
Appealing on the last record but I think you're gonna hear some some different.
As well we got some.
Some -- of country and and and some.
Some club beats this huh -- I -- I asked you before when I'm ready to ever do any duets with Emmylou Harris -- -- -- I heard you glad that country sound.
And would you do that do do -- maybe it was -- I would love and I love doing collaborations with.
Would anybody at -- absolutely I would and I wouldn't.
-- insane on any what about doing what Constantine has done getting it does something into theater or movies or something like -- well I had to have a little and acting we I was on.
CSI New York this this year hung there hundredth episode is the show but I don't know so that was a lot of fun and and I thought about it but right now that the focuses.
On music what do you play and see if I was -- -- -- -- I was that day you never really news hit.
I was just this this guy who is suspected for something and -- got brought in for questions they never really.
Knew my story just knew I was some god it was getting confused with someone else are you -- all worried that the celebrity will eventually sorted change your life in a direction -- -- wanted to be tuning.
You know like I said -- -- Grounded with my family and and we still live in North Carolina which we never planned to leave so.
You know -- love going to.
To LA and and and visiting and doing work out there but.
That's not a -- you know actors and actresses and musicians and other celebrities who stay in their hometown usually do keep keep what's important right.
Yet there's certainly -- to be fed and that and that you're an example you saved adage sell a lot of albums and at that idol fans and -- again.
