Taylor Hicks and JRecords...O Lawd~Free At Last!

Taylor Hicks has given us cause for celebration! His statement confirming his mutually agreed upon split from JRecords has us dancing in the aisles once again. Although he promises more great things in 2008 and asks us to sit tight, that is NOT about to happen! Wherever Taylor is there is excitement and music and good stuff, and it is impossible to sit tight or sit still.

Taylor, we are behind you 110%! Your music gives us Joy and you are the consummate professional as an entertainer. Now you are free to pursue your best shot on a new CD and we are looking forward to the next round of tours.

GO SOULMAN! LET FREEDOM RING!

From Taylor's myspace:
"A statement from Taylor: To all my fans and The Soul Patrol, I want to take a moment to talk about the recent news that my label and I have mutually parted ways. The important thing for all of you to remember is that I've been a working musician my whole life. This is turning the page on a new chapter of my career. Artistic freedom and control is an exciting prospect. The things that are most important to me is creating my art, performing it, and my fans. With the momentum that all of you have created over the years, Taylor Hicks is not going to stop anytime soon. I've started working on the new album, writing and scheduling exciting collaborations. The DVD, Whomp at the Warfield, is in it's final stages, and will be released soon. So as one door closes, a new one opens for 2008 with more excitement for all my fans than ever before. Sit tight, because the best is yet to come!"

I've been out of the Taylor loop for awhile...saw him last summer and was blown away. I'm just hungry for some news about him and what he's up to. Can't wait for some new music from him!

By the way, I'd like to officially plead for Dancing Queen to be a part of every concert in 2008--I've never been so entertained or turned on!!!
