December 27th Billboard posted an article about Taylor Hicks touring scedule. In the article they also stated that "Hicks' album debuted last week at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 but drops this week to No. 15. It has sold 500,000 units thus far in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan." You can read the article at Billboard
Some are a little worried that the album has dropped to No. 15 but all CDS drop at sometime and then come back up as I am sure Taylor's will, especially once the single is put out and starts to air on the radio. But selling 500,000 units in two weeks is amazing and I am sure Taylor Hicks is thrilled with this.

This means Taylor Hicks album is Gold. It hit gold within two weeks. I am sure platinum is close. I enjoy this album so much I love every song on this album. If someone asks me to choose a favorite that is almost impossible for me to do as I throughly enjoy each song. I listen to this CD everyday. Either on my computer, in the car or in my home stereo. I am going to have to buy a couple more. One to keep to replace the one I am surely going to wear out and one to keep unopened just incase I get to meet Taylor in the future and have him sign it.

My home town newspaper also published my interview with Taylor Hicks in the paper. The scan of it is below. Taylor Hicks went on American Idol to have his voice heard. In his words "Because I think I've Got one." We the viewing public agreed and I am so glad that Taylor Hicks decided to try out for American Idol, as I love hearing his voice very much.
