I totally agree with you wisgalb...I had heard rumors but didn't have anything that necessarily substantiated those rumors....I don't have a problem with him being dropped by his label and don't feel like its a death sentence for him. His true fans will follow him wherever he may go. I believe that he, just like Bo, is happy to play music and doesn't have to become mega-superstars in order to fill fulfilled.
This says it all....a chance to be who HE wants to be....Hicks is looking forward to a busy 2008 with a primary goal being a new album out in stores.
"I think I'll have a lot more freedom creatively this go-around," says Hicks, whose self-titled last CD came out seven months after he won "Idol."
"I'll also have the time now to create an album without the post-winning-'Idol' constrictions," he says. "I have time for the album to breathe artistically."
Taylor, Bo and Ruben didn't fit their "mold" and I'm ok with that....I'll still stand behind them and support them....and still be a big AI fan and supporter! Without AI, I wouldn't know who Taylor, Bo and Ruben were....
