The only thing keeping pace with the growing number of miles on Daughtry’s tour bus has been the band’s list of achievements.
After charting three #1 songs from its five-times platinum debut and spending more than two years on the road, Daughtry with their already platinum Leave This Town (19/RCA). The album entered at the top of the Billboard 200, making it the band’s second #1 album. The album’s first single, “No Surprise,” extended the group’s extraordinary streak of #1 singles to four. The band’s second and current single “Life After You” is following the same path.
Singer Chris Daughtry says it feels like the band has lived a lifetime in three years. “We’ve come so far so fast, working our way up from clubs to headlining arenas,” he says. “The best part is that it feels like we’re just getting started.” Guitarist Brian Craddock adds: “You couldn’t have scripted these last few years any better.”
Leave This Town is the first album to feature Chris with bandmates Joey Barnes (drums/piano), Josh Paul (bass), and guitarists Josh Steely and Brian Craddock. Together, they deliver a dozen inspired performances held together by anthemic hooks, impassioned vocals, and lyrics laced with wisdom earned on life’s journey.
