Bo Bice Gets Married, Lack Of Airplay Costs Him #1 Spot

June 30, 2005 11:25 PM by Joe Blackmon

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.

    Both versions of the song are great. I own both (iTunes also gives you a free digital pamphlet with each version! 8) ). I am not surprised both of them have done so well. They are such immense talents. Good luck, both of you guys!

    Country music is the best. Carrie won for a reason she is the best. Poor Bo fans need to realize that.

    This is the same things that 19E/Simon fuller has done for ALL THE RUNNER-UPS (includig CLAY AIKEN). They will not pay (i.e, payola, is alive and well) for the Runner-ups to get airplay like they do for the Winners. They do not want the Runnber-ups to outsell the Winners. You have to have a really mega fanbase in order to keep the Runner-Up on the charts. That why CLAY AIKEN SURPASSED ALL THE AI WINNERS BECAUSE OF HIS MEGA FANBASE. bO bICE will have to build up his fanbase in order to stay on the charts because Simon Fuller/19E ARE NO GONNA PAY FOR AIRPLY. Bo when your 1 year contract is up get away from Simon Fuller and sign with a reputable Management Team that will give you the promotion you deserve. Take a page out of Clay Aiken’s book. He signed with THE FIRM after his 1 year was up. THE FIRM represents also Leonaldo DiCaprio and Cameron Diaz. You deserve better. Clay Aiken left Simon Fuller tripping over his mouth. Their whol agenda is to not pay for airplay for the Runner-ups then with poor sales they can drop them after their 1 year contract is up. They only sign the Runner-ups si because they do not want he Runner-ups to sign with another label and outsell the Winner but after a year has past, it will be like Bo Bice Who? They figure people will have forgotten about the runner-up.
    Justin Guarini did everything they asked him to do yet he never got a CD single or video and his 1 and only album was released the same week as Clay Aiken and Ruben STuddard’s CD single were released. Then they dropped Justin and used the excuse of POOR SALES. AI2, Clay Aiken they were gong to do the same but Clay knocked their sox off when his CD Single went Platinum before it was released. They were gonna keep him but Clay knew that they were not looking out for his best interest ’cause he wasn’t getting airplay. So he pulled the rug out from underneath them. AI3, Diana DeGarmo has aready asked to be released from her contract and they allowed it because they were gonna drop her and blame it on poor sales. She’s signed with ICM who happens to manage USHER. Can’t get any better management team than that. So Bo has to shop around and line up an outside Management Team that will look out for his interest because he’ll never get airplay from 19E/Simon Fuller.

    I am a Carrie fan but I like both versions. As of July 8 Carrie is still rockin the charts ahead of Bo. Both are doing well so neither side should bash each other just be happy for whom ya like. Seems like Bo fans are still knocking Carrie down and still looking for reasons on her win and high placings on the charts as of today. You Bo fans for some reason just cant let it go!!!!

    Puh lease King. Enlarge the size of your brain. If you check on the internet, Bo’s pre-orders were BEYOND ahead of Carrie’s on Barnes&Noble and Amazon.com. Too bad they didn’t count the sales on the internet. Which ALSO proves that BO has more fans all over the world and Carrie’s fans are mainly based only in BOO-AMERICA HAHAHAHAHAHA please think before you speak! It actually shows how shallow you are :)

    Interestingly enough, despite Carrie’s win and higher sales, Bo has been by far the most popular performer on the Idols tour, which bodes well for his long-term future.

    Well I think bo should have won. I went to the concert in Detroit and even tho BO had a broken foot it didnt’stop him from rocking the house! I like Constantine more then I like Carrie.. but I like Carrie becasue I love COuntry music but I love Southern Rock too so.. But Still wish BO would have won but I have nothing to say bad about Carrie .. Al I have to say is CArrie needs to work on her stage presence. Bo has the whole package .he should ahve won!!
