    Like many, I first discovered Gavin's music while watching "One Tree Hill". I loved seeing him on the series finale. He also sung "Soldier" (from his "Sweeter" album and "Belief" (from his debut album, "Chariot"). Love his music and also love him on DWTS. There is something about his demeanor that's appealing to me. He seems shy, yet personable, approachable and funny. I hope he keeps improving and that he stays on for a while longer.

    So glad to see you posted this as I came here to do the very same thing. I loved One Tree Hill and that is how I first became familiar with his music. I loved that he performed on the series finale. Hope I am allowed to say that I will miss this show. Nine years was a great run, but will miss it. I also was happy that Gavin has improved on DWTS. I know it's a tough season, but I hope to see him stay longer.

It moved me to tears when he stopped singing and the crowd, most notably the entire cast, sang the words. He was really enjoying himself. I'm hoping his appearance on OTH tonight reminds all the OTH fans how much they love him and they'll vote for him.

    He is also known for being assaulted last year in New York after a show. He was beaten up pretty badly on the street. A song from his most recent CD called Not Over You is one of my favorite songs right now. You should check it out.

    BTW he always wears the hat. He wore it on OTH tonight and he did on the most recent cd cover. It's his thing. Also, it's hard to believe I Don't Wanna Be came out 10 years ago!
    Just have to tell you that I loved your post. You were not the only one who was moved to tears.

    I first came across Gavin about six years ago. I had three kids 3 and under, and the new baby screamed his head off day and night (we later found out he had severe food allergies). Many, many afternoons I would buckle the kids in the car and drive around just to give me some quasi-peace. My whole life I'd been a huge music fan, but I had no time to follow what was going on--the car radio was my only link to the musical outside world in those days. For some reason, the station I listened to had Gavin's songs in heavy rotation, and I just drank them up. His stuff at that point was more rock-oriented, and sitting behind the wheel I could feel just a tiny bit connected to my old self. Needless to say, he's been a favorite since then.

    Very cool that his fans here came to his music in different ways.

    This was his best dance so far. I hope he isn't in the bottom 2 again. He needs some confidence

    Yay--not in the bottom two! I hope being safe this week gives Gavin some confidence for the next dance.

    I'll vote like mad again next week, but at this point, I'm happy with whatever happens. He was a long shot to even make it past the first elimination, so he should be proud to have made it this far.

    I really hope that he gets the confidence he needs now that he wasn't in the bottom 2. I was so happy for him. He looked genuinely surprised
