I may have mentioned something about being a fan of Taylor Hicks and a member in grand standing of Soul Patrol.

Well I am!

Taylor appeared on the American Idol results show last night, performing the latest single from his new CD The Distance. The song is Seven Mile Breakdown.

Love it!

    Wow, how long has it been since I last had cable? I am wayyyy out of touch!

  1. DrillerAA says:

    His new album is very well done!

  1. barb says:

    I enjoyed his performance last night, too! He looked great and he has grown as a performer in the last three years.

  1. Oh wow, I've never heard him sing! He's good!

  1. Travis says:

    Jay: Really? That long?

    Drilleraa: Isn't it?

    Barb: He was terrific!

    Lois: Never? I'm glad I could introduce you!

    NNG: We luvs new fans!

  1. Ivanhoe says:

    Is his CD out yet? I'm running to the store to get it :o) Thanks for the reminder, Trav!

  1. I'm glad you all got to enjoy your guy!

  1. Julie says:

    "I'm gonna tear this whole place down and I'll be on my way."

    That was the line I was talking about being so appropriate for him to sing last night.

    And he did! If not last night-three years ago he did! So I felt it could have been a kick in Simon's teeth.

    Tee hee hee!

  1. that actualy doesn't sound too bad

  1. Thom says:

    I have never cared for him for some reason.

  1. Mags says:

    I don't actually know what "honky tonk" is, or even if it's really a music type, but this is what I think of when I hear "honky tonk".

    It's good though! I like it!

  1. JohnH985 says:

    Thanks for the video, I missed it. I haven't been watching Idol regularly this year, I catch it when I can, but it comes on Wednesday the same time as Lost so I know which one I'm watching.

  1. Marsha says:

    I knew you would be watching!!

  1. Anndi says:

    And Simon gave him a standing O!!!!

    I'm still a puddle of goo :)

  1. One of my high school friends grew up to look just like him...

  1. Travis says:

    Ivanhoe: Yes it's been out for a month. I got mine at iTunes.

    Katherine: Thanks!

    Julie: He sounded great, and his advice to the Idols was solid.

    Akelamalu: I'm glad!

    Charles: Just a little Delta blues.

    Thom: I understand.

    Mags: It's more blues than honky tonk.

    John: I only watched the results last night because Taylor was on.

    Marsha: Yup!

    Ann: Don't slip in the puddle.

    Lana: Soul Patrol would say that's a good thing.

  1. Meribah says:

    Woohooo! I don't think I heard this one before. Way cool! Thanks for sharing with us, Trav. :)

    How about a trip to Birmingham AL? Taylor Hicks is playing "Teen Angel" in the broadway production of GREASE in Birmingham. When I saw it, I thought of you!

    I would LOVE to take my girls to see it.
