Stage One...2015

Taylor Hicks opens 2015 very appropriately on stage, above, in Fair Oaks, Indiana! "Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year" "EXCLUSIVE! Made especially for you, the fans, Taylor Hicks sings "Please Come Home For Christmas" written by Charles Brown and Gene Redd in this video produced by Mickey Jack Cones. Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!"

Remembering Joe Cocker
"@TaylorHicks: So sorry to hear of the passing of #JoeCocker - he was a mentor to me. May he rest in peace."
Taylor sang Joe Cocker's "You Are So Beautiful" in the 2006 Idol compeitition and Simon Cowell gave it: Taylor's "best performance"

Allman Brothers Band played its farewell concert and Taylor remembers the good times with the legendary Southern rock band: "I cannot tell you how much influence the Allman Brothers had on my musical journey. From the kid in high school jamming harp to 'Blue Sky' to 'Please Call Home,' this band was one of my favorites." Check out his performance with them of "One Way Out" at One Way Out

CMCHatLive Interview: "country and roots music.."
Taylor talked to CMChatLive's Tiera Bolt in an exclusive interview about the roots music he grew up in and around. "...There’s a particular part of my musicality that touches on country and roots music. ...Country music is where my heart is. ..This is the roots genre I grew up in and around."

Forbes: "Coming in at No. 4 is something of a surprise: Taylor Hicks. The Season 5 winner earned $3.5 million, beating some of Idol’s better-known names thanks to a Vegas residency and 114 dates in our scoring period.

"'It’s always good to come to the party first, in all different aspects, whether it be television or film or a Vegas residency,' said Hicks, who also owns a restaurant in Alabama and plans to release a country album this spring. 'I think this is just one of those instances where the opportunity to be the first Idol to have a Vegas show was perfect fit.'" Forbes

Ryan Seacrest joined the conversation: "The Soul Patrol is still strong. Taylor, 38, continues to enjoy success more than 8 years after he won Season 5 in 2006." Most Successful American Idol Contestants in 2014
