Former American Idol contestant Chris Daughtry hits the BOK Center Tuesday night.
Although he placed fourth in the fifth season of the popular show, he’s the third most successful contestant in terms of album sales. Only Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood have sold more records.
His self-titled album – Daughtry – sold more than 1 million within only five weeks, making it the fastest selling debut album in history. The album actually hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts twice, and has since got double-platinum.
His “It’s Not Over” was nominated for Best Rock Song at the 50th Grammy Awards.
From the band’s own web site: “Use any measurement you like – in an era of digitized, customized-shuffling music = wallpaper styling’s, Daughtry has almost single-handedly given the genre back its heart, resurrecting an endangered species via the bluesy swagger of What I Want,and the image-shredding angst of Feels Like Tonight; restoring its nomadic longing for place on Home, its righteous indignation on It’s Not Over. With signature ache and poise, the North Carolina native blends each hard-won attribute into a rousing mosaic for the ages. The DAUGHTRY album is also forging unprecedented sales and chart breakthroughs – affirming there is still gold to be mined, thank God, with a rugged voice and passionate songwriting instincts.”
Daughtry, with guests Theory of a Deadman and Cavo, starts at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Ticktets are $41.50 and $31.50 and can be purchased here.
