Taylor Hicks: Extra!

Taylor was just on Extra. It was a small clip but seeing even just a second or two of Taylor is great. The little piece of the song they played seemed like it is going to be a love song type with an up-tempo beat. Once they get the music mixed in with vocals, I am sure it will be a beautiful song. I just wish Extra and the other shows would give us a couple minutes worth of the song to hear. It is however great to see Taylor doing what he does even if it is only for a few seconds.

He is going to be on a lot of television shows in the near future and hopefully we will get to hear a full song of his new CD soon. Extra, Extra we want more Taylor!

Taylor Hicks: Rehearsals

Just went to Rehearsals and saw the video of Taylor singing Georgia on my Mind. Once again Taylor Hicks was amazing. Taylor takes everything he sings and makes it his own. He has done that from the start and continues to do it. I loved the harp playing, Taylor is just as amazing with the harp as he is with his voice. What would we do without Rehearsals?

Rehearsals give us our Taylor Hicks fix each Friday. The wait for Taylor’s CD to come is hard as we are all anxious to listen to this album and get to hear a whole CD worth of Taylor’s beautiful voice. However, Rehearsals is allowing us to sit in on Taylor’s rehearsal process and it is a great way to enjoy Taylor while waiting on the CD to release. Seeing Taylor’s rehearsal process is amazing as we get another glimpse into his music life and the process of what makes this man and his music so amazing.

An update however the CD was due to release on Dec 5th but now it will not release until December 12th. I, as I am sure the rest of you, was anxiously awaiting the 5th, however its only a week later and Gray Charles reports Taylor is up beat about it because it gives him another week to work on the music. So that is good enough for me. I trust Taylor knows what he is doing and wants to make sure we get the best possible music from him that he can deliver. At least we have Rehearsals to go to and hear and see Taylor perform, that should hold us over until Dec 12th.

Greatest American Idol

Taylor Hicks: Kellie Pickler

Taylor was my pick on American Idol I knew he was something unique and every week like the rest of the Soul Patrol I anxiously awaited his song choice and I was never disappointed. I believe Season 5 was the most talented season yet. Even though Taylor was my choice to win I knew there were several others who would make it Kellie Pickler was my second favorite. She was my husband first choice. I just got her CD and am happily surprised. Kellie Pickler’s CD is even better than I expected it to be.

Kellie Pickler will have an amazing career. I like all the songs on the CD. This Small Town Girl has a terrific voice and the songs on the CD are great. Even a couple that will make you tear up a little. “I Wonder,” “My Angel” (this song reminds me of my own Grandmother and my Mother in Law) and “Wild Ponies” are perfect examples of that. “Didn’t Know How Much I Loved You” will be a great song for people going through a break up.

“Small Town Girl” and “Red High Heels” are feel good dancing songs. Love the eat cheese burgers not calamari part in Small Town Girl. Made me smile and remember the conversation on AI. Kellie Pickler is very talented and I bet this CD will end up winning lots of awards and some will end up being extremely popular country songs.

I have Kellie Pickler’s CD and enjoy it very much. Now I can’t wait for Taylor’s to release gotta hear over and over our Soul Man’s album. Please lots of videos to.

Taylor Hicks Obession

Do we, “The Soul Patrol” have a Taylor Hicks Obsession? Is it because he is a celebrity? A new article states that might just be the case, I however do not think this is so. The articles says “By now almost everyone in the US knows that the winner of American Idol 2006 was 30-year-old Taylor Hicks, a soul singer, songwriter and musician shrouded in obscurity for a decade, before rising to prominence in the fifth season of American Idol. It goes on to say people have Celebrity Worship Syndrome, or Celebrity Obsession Syndrome -- or even Mad Icon Disease. They all describe an unhealthy obsession with the lives of the rich and famous. According to those who say they know, about a third of us have it to some degree.” So do we have a Taylor Hicks Obsession?

Taylor Hicks came on American Idol as just an ordinary guy looking to live his dream. Fans fell for his voice, charm and personality. He was not a celebrity when the voting started. He was a guy who wanted to share his talent with the viewing public and the viewing public loved him and said, “Yes! This is the American Idol we want”. So no we don’t have a Taylor Hicks Obsession at least not because he was a celebrity and everyone jumped on his coat tales.

However, now, The Soul Patrol may have a Taylor Hicks Obsession but again it’s not because he is a “celebrity”. It is because we saw him do his utmost best each week. We saw him take criticism and insults from Simon with a smile on his face. We know how much he respects The Soul Patrol. He does everything he can to keep us up to date on what is going on with his career. This ordinary guy next door has a voice that is heavenly and when he pulls out the harp the fans knees turn to butter. But he is also a caring and nice man so if The Soul Patrol as some sort of syndrome called a Taylor Hicks Obsession I don’t think any member will be seeking to get rid of it. Please leave a comment and tell everyone about your “Syndrome”. We will discuss how to “Keep It.”
