Olympics and Taylor Hicks

Today while traveling through the World Wide Web searching for Taylor Hicks news I stumbled across a great find. Tim Morehouse who was on the PBS special a Capital Fourth and is in the Summer Olympics in fencing. Posted about meeting Taylor and how nice he was. After this post of course Tim found out how much the SP appreciates those who have something nice to say about Taylor. He left this post.

The Olympic Twilight Zone: Taylor Hicks and the Soul Patrol!

My life right now is definitely fun, but also surreal, interesting and sometimes bizarre! Things happen leading up to the games that are totally unique. After my July 4 appearance on PBS I published a blog entry on my site as well as my USA Today blog and in it I had a line about meeting one of the American Idols, Taylor Hicks. I wrote that he was a nice guy and some Taylor Hicks fans found it and got really excited and it ended up on several fan forums. Within a day, the hits to my website and blog quadrupled and I have gotten tons of emails wishing me luck from his Soul Patrol! He must have the most loyal fans in the world, and I'm honored that I'll have the Soul Patrol pulling for me in Beijing! Perhaps a new name: Soul and Sword Patrol¨ anyone?

Thank you to all of them for outpouring of support! I hope I can do you all proud! No other Olympian can boast a fan base as unique as mine, from Teach For America to Taylor Hicks fans! Wow! Check out his blog

Catching Up

I have been out of the loop this last week in regards to news about Taylor Hicks. I know some others out they might know everything that has been happening so the next few posts may be old news to those who have been keeping track this week but I am sure many will be reading this stuff for the first time.
Taylor was recently interviewed by MTV News. The best part for me from the article is
"I don't have a name for the album yet, but I do know that it's some of the best music that I've ever written, and from an artistic standpoint, this album, being in my control, has allowed me to really breathe as a songwriter," he said. "As an artist, you kind of understand the times and what your surroundings are and write from them. So there are some political undertones on the album. It's a serious time for us."

Hicks said he's not worried about the future, because he knows he has what it takes to sustain a career in music. "It would be scary if I didn't really believe that I was supposed to do this," he said. "For me, as a kid, I knew I was supposed to entertain and perform for folks. When you have that self-belief and inner-determination, you understand there are peaks and valleys in this business, and you just keep working at it. You show up to work, whether it's 25 people at a Steak & Ale, or Wembley Stadium and there's 500,000 people. If you keep working, and you're good to people, you'll be blessed."
I cannot wait for the next album I will be getting it as soon as it comes available.
