Chris is right up there with Taylor Hicks in our household. Chris seems like a genuine person - I love the whole backstory about his wife and her - their - kids. And man did he ever sound like Jon Bon Jovi! (is it "John?") I like him because he's not the stereotypical effeminate bubblegum type a lot of the pop stars/wannabe pop stars seem to be. He brings a nice edge; and I think a lot of guys are going to like him. Oh and I like the look with the cowboy hat; he should bring that back once in a while.
