Daughtry was formed in 2006 after frontman Chris Daughtry burst onto the scene as a finalist on American Idol. That year, the group released its self-titled debut album, which went 4 times platinum and became the fastest-selling rock debut in music-tracking history. The following year, the band was named top new artist at the Billboard Music Awards, setting the stage for its successful sophomore release, Leave This Town. In all, the band has scored four #1 Top 40 hits, received four Grammy® Award nominations and four American Music Awards.
On stage is where the band really shines. With Chris’s powerful voice, knack for great melodic hooks and big, anthem-like choruses, the band continues to electrify audiences around the world.
