American Idol 4 might be over, but American Idol runner-up Bo Bice appears to be keeping busy. In addition to a number of TV and concert appearances, Bo Bice found time to tie the knot with his longtime girlfriend. Harold Elwin Bice, Jr. and Caroline Merrin Fisher were married on June 15, 2005 in Shelby County, Alabama by Bo’s preacher Donny Acton. Alabama Radio DJ’s Russ and Dee have a copy of the wedding certificate on their website. Bo Bice’s new single "Inside Your Heaven" has also hit the Billboard charts.
Bo has debuted in the #2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Last week, American Idol Winner Carrie Underwood’s single of "Inside Your Heaven" debuted in the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Carrie’s single has fallen to the #3 spot this week. Bo Bice could very well have debuted in the #1 spot except for a lack of radio airplay. Bo Bice’s fans have definitely gotten out and supported Bo by buying his single, now hopefully radio will wake up to just how popular the second place finisher on American Idol really is. According to Billboard.com, Bo also faired a little better on the singles sales chart and the Pop 100 chart reaching the #1 position on both charts.
Both Carrie Underwood and Bo Bice have a lot to be proud of in their single sales, as according to Billboard.com their second and third place positions represent the first time the same song has been in two of the top three positions. Plus with only two weeks of sales for Carrie Underwood and one week of sales for Bo Bice, they are already in the number one and number two positions respectively for best selling singles for 2005.
