In 1979, Christopher Adam Daughtry was born in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina. Pursuing a music career at age 16, the future American Idol contestant wrote songs and performed with high school rock bands. At one point, he was a vocalist for the group Absent Element. While working at a Honda dealership, the aspiring star joined the fifth season of Idol, where he went on to sing hits originally performed by Creed, Elvis, Keith Urban, and Styx. Although Taylor Hicks won the competition and "Rocker Dad" was a fourth place finalist, he did not give up on his dreams of success. Fuel asked him to be their lead singer, but Chris preferred to start his own group.
After holding band auditions, the rock musician selected Jeremy Brady, guitarist Josh Steely, bassist Josh Paul, and drummer Joey Barnes. In 2006, they released a debut album that reached the top of the Billboard 200. Certified platinum, Daughtry was the best selling album of 2007, with top ten hits like "What I Want." Around this time, Brady left the group and Brian Craddock replaced him as a guitar player. Next, the band finished a deluxe edition of the CD that included a cover of Foreigner's "Feels Like the First Time." In addition, the up-and-coming artists opened for Nickelback, as well as Bon Jovi's Lost Highway Tour.
As a songwriter, Chris Daughtry admires Elton John, and has collaborated with Brad Arnold, Rob Thomas, and Chad Kroeger on lyrics. Recently, the band earned a Best Rock Album Grammy nomination. And in July of 2009, RCA released the group's latest CD, Leave This Town. With tracks like "You Don't Belong," the new album features guitar riffs, ballads, and a country tune with Vince Gill called "Tennessee Line." Both a rock star and a devoted husband and father, Rocker Dad is here to stay.
