On March 10, American Idol champion Taylor Hicks releases his first single to his new album which is going to have a completely different sound than his freshman album did which was released shortly after his big American Idol Season 5 win. Taylor Hicks hopes that this single and album will make him more than just a one hit wonder or fleeting memory for fans.

The CD is titled “The Distance” and the single that is being released is titled “What’s Right Is Right”. American Idol admits that he didn’t take much part in the creation of his first post-American Idolalbum and explains how this one is going to be much different than what people heard before. “When I wrote this record, I really tried to put myself outside of the box and look into the project as a music fan. I tried to use that perspective as a measuring stick for my music. I think, on this particular record, my voice is a common thread, and my love for different styles of music is really apparent.”

We liked Taylor Hicks on the show but realize that he is one of those that sadly has been almost forgotten since winning American Idol. We really hope that this album does what it is supposed to do in making him once again a household name and shows what a great singer he really is.

What do you think of “What’s Right Is Right” so far? Let us know!

    What’s Right Is Right is a great representation of Taylor Hicks. His official WRIR video is out and it is really wonderful. I wish you had posted that one instead of a fan video on youtube.
    If you want to see the official video, here is a link.

    What do I think????!!!! Taylor is amazing, has a fantastic voice, and this new CD should be a hit. However, I have loved all his past work as well. I wish Taylor would get some positive press as so much of it has been negative since his winning Idol 5. He has certainly worked to gain the positive press and his fans know he has a fantastic talent!! Bravo for Taylor and congratulations on your new release!!
