Taylor Hicks~A Change Goin Come

Taylor Hicks has a lot coming up in this next few months and the new year. And I, for one, cannot wait to sample it all!

For starters, check out Taylor Hicks myspace. Things are happening there and all for the good! The player has new songs in it and there are links that lead to some exciting new features and more to come. And Taylor has a YouTube Channel now! Check it out here:

Also in the near future, a national tour for "Grease" reprising his role as Teen Angel, and a new Taylor Hicks CD. I usually dislike the winter months, but this sounds like a GREAT way to keep warm and snuggly this season!

Taylor Hicks is going to be a busy guy from now until the new year, and it sounds like it's going to be a FUN FILLED time for he and his fans!

While we are waiting, check out TTHC's intervierws with those who know and love Taylor.

Taylor Hicks~From Birmingham to Grease to Greece!

So we are at a little cafe in Athens, Greece and we ask a couple near us if the food is good. They say yes and ask us where we are from. Then I ask where they are from...I bet you can guess where this is going....

They are from Birmingham, Alabama and know of Taylor Hicks...their son went to high school with him. Of course, I was ChattyPatty with this couple instantly and HIGHLY recommended they go buy Taylor Hicks Early Works. I soooo wish I had one with me, so they could take it back to all their friends and get them to buy also, but I gave them the lowdown. They were so proud of Taylor for his success and for "Grease." It is no that coincidence that this man and his music follows us around the world....he is so incredible at what he does, his artistry, that it's no wonder he is known all over, even internationally in Italy and now Greece. And what Fates led me to this couple? Why the Taylorizers, of course :) So....Taylor Hicks has come from Birmingham, Alabama, to New York in one version of "Grease," and now has found his way through his hometown fans, to yet another Greece...Athens!

What a small world...our Soulman is found everywhere!

A Taylor Hicks Fan Remembers 9-11

As I woke this morning, I checked outside as I do each morning. The sun was out and it's a beautiful day here. I switched on my CD player to listen to my Taylor Hicks music, and then I checked the time and saw the date...and I knew in my heart, I woke up in a very special place....MY COUNTRY, MY HOME where I could awaken safely to listen to Taylor Hicks music, to go outside into the sun, to enjoy my family all around me, all the pleasures we often take for granted. To this day, when I remember, when I think about Sept 11, my tears fall freely and proudly. My Country is my home and without the brave efforts of so many lives, some lost and some returned, I would not be waking up to enjoy these beautiful treasures of Freedom, in my beautiful free homeland.

Taylor Hicks~Friends and Former Bandmates Continue to Speak :)

The Taylor Hicks Community is continuing its celebration of Early Taylor Hicks, with interviews with his friends and former bandmates, who still play with him when they get the chance. So far, we have spoken with Quinn Borland of SpoonfulJames and also, Michael Sheehan, who photographs Taylor so eloquently.

This week, TTHC features a fabulous interview with Jon Cook, long time friend of Taylor Hicks, who is featured prominently on Taylor's pre idol CDs. Jon is a fantastic guitarist and singer, and has many interesting and insightful comments on his friend. Jon is just a delight to talk to and truly a good buddy of Taylor's. Please join us at TTHC for this continuing series on Early Taylor Hicks, with our newest interview this week....Jon Cook:)

Taylor Hicks~Final Curtain Call for "Grease"

Taylor Hicks had his final curtain call last night on Broadway. I am feeling like it's a mixture of nostalgia, relief, and bit of sadness for him, the cast, and his fans. Taylor was really terrific last night, according to all reports, and the cast even attempted to lift him in homage to the many audiences he has thrilled and increased, since his addition to the ensemble cast.

TaylorsAngels has a wonderful interview with Kirsten Wyatt, who plays Frenchie to Taylor Hicks' Teen Ange, which is testament to how much he was loved by the cast and crew. I am quite sure New York, Broadway, the fans, and "Grease" will be missing their resident Soul Angel for many weeks and months to come.

Their loss may be our gain, as Taylor Hicks continues to develop his craft and talent for his one true passion, his music. We will be seeing him down the road onstage and off, doing what he does best...ENTERTAIN AND PLEASE!

Taylor Hicks~Farewell to "Grease"--Hello Future!

Tonight marks the farewell performance of Taylor Hicks as Teen Angel in "Grease." This has been a most successful run for Taylor and he has much to be proud of, along with his God Given talent for producing and delivering musical enjoyment to everyone who attends his appearances. This role has afforded him the opportunity to show his theatre stage presence, as well as his tour stage charm, and has garnered him many new fans as well as pleasing his present fans.

And now, according to various interviews, it's off to bigger and more wonderful Taylor Hicks things! With a new CD in the process, his creative genuis will once again be showcased. As much as Taylor has been in the media lately, with photo shoots of his New York digs, and his dressing room at the Brooks Atkinson theatre, plus the hoardes of adoring fans waiting for him in Meet and Greets or at the stage door, I have a sneaking hunch that what Taylor Hicks is MOST proud of, is his MUSIC, and rightly so. That musical genius, and his passion for it, has always carried him along this business industry and incredible Journey that began so long ago, before many knew of him. The rest of the good stuff is simply the Gravy from this Big Potroast Full of Soul!

Yep, Taylor Hicks, you made us Proud and continue to do that every day!

Congrats on a tremendously successful run on Broadway in "Grease." Looking foward to the next leg of this fabulous and hard earned Journey.

Taylor Hicks Memories at Orange Beach and FloraBama

The Taylor Hicks Community continues with its Take2 lookback at past shows on the anniverary of their concert dates. We started this last year, after the concert series was over and fans were lonesome for their Soulman.

Today we celebrate the anniversary of two terrific venues....Orange Beach, Alabama and the FLORABAMA! The Florabama is a great roadhouse on the boundary of Pensacola and Alabama, and was one of the places Taylor Hicks played in the early days. For this show, he returned to his old haunt and gave fans the time of their lives!

Check out our excellent videos and photos memories of Taylor Hicks at Orange Beach and Florabama right here:
