Last night, Taylor Hicks returned to the American Idol stage with his best foot forward. He sang a country mix of his new awesome single, "Seven Mile Breakdown," complete with harp! He got a standing ovation from the audience and the judges, even Simon Scowal...lol.
Taylor Hicks ROCKED that AI stage last night. He was perfection in every way and the AI band did him justice without overshadowing his voice. It was real blue eyed soul night on AI and our SoulMan delievered! You can watch this fantastic performance on the embedded video above. This is a great second single release for Taylor and it has also been added to country music stations. There is also a new Taylor Hicks music video on the way for SMB, done by Spence Nicholson.
If you are not getting enough Taylor Hicks lately, then you must be asleep or in a coma :) He has lit up the radio and television stations, as well as continuing to grace the "Grease" stage, in every city he visits and has done some after shows in some areas.
Did America get the Season Five vote right?

Taylor Hicks is everywhere these days! Last night, he showed up on a segment of Fox Reality Channel's new show Bodyguards. The show chronicles the professional and personal lives of the two bodyguards Carmine and Mikey who work for high profile clients in New York at the various events which they attend. Our SoulMan was a big feature of this first show, reflecting his transportation and arrival to the Broadway Theatre and his attendance at the an evening event later on.
One of the BEST and most touching moments was when Taylor requested Carmine to stop in front of the large billboard featuring Taylor Hicks as Teen Angel in "Grease," so he could get a photo to "send home to his folks." How humble and cute is that?
Of course, there was Carmine's take on this maneuver, that Taylor was surrounded by energetic fans and only one bodyguard to protect him, and that once back in the vehicle, Taylor appeared a bit taken aback by the crowds. I am not sure if this was staging for the show or Taylor really felt that way, because he has encountered this everywhere he goes since winning Idol. But this is a great piece of footage for Taylor Hicks fans and a lot of fun to watch! They will repeat the show, I believe today. TTHC also has a capture of this to watch and keep in our "Grease" member section. I loved watching this and loved when Carmine said "He is hot!" I am pretty sure he didn't mean it like some of us do...LOL...but it is true on many levels. Taylor Hicks is definitely hot property on and offstage these days!

Taylor Hicks graced the San Francisco media viewing area once again yesterday, with a return appearance on View From The Bay. He sang "7 Mile Breakdown," and this time it wasn't with a production or tour band. It was pure Taylor, acoustic and hot!
I have heard this song several times, both from SpoonfulJames and from Taylor, and never thought I'd enjoy it as much the way it was performed on the View From The Bay. However Taylor Hicks, as always, showed his versatility with just a chair, a guitar, and the most beautiful instrument of all....his voice.
If you have not had a chance to see Taylor Hicks in this performance and cute interview at the end, head over to this link where they archive their show segments. I think the West Coast is getting a HEAVY DOSE of Heart and Soul...and I think they are loving it!

There is a STIR on the west coast and it's not an earthquake. Taylor Hicks has arrived and is shaking up the place! Starting with San Diego, moving to LA, and now in San Francisco, Taylor has entertained countless new and present fans in his role as Teen Angel in "Grease" and has added a shadow tour show full of his unique music to each venue city, as well as introducing his new hit single at the close of each play performance.
The Belly Up Tavern in the San Diego area was a fabulous show and many lucky fans got to enjoy this, close up and personal. Taylor also performed at the legendary Roxy, which was an awesome experience! He will be at the Cafe Du Nord in San Francisco on April 14th and is scheduled to appear at The Triple Door in Seattle on May 27th.
The west coast press has been courting Taylor Hicks since he arrived. You cannot turn on a radio or TV in the area without an interview or reference to the SoulMan from Alabama, who has captured our hearts in so many ways. Now that cameras are allowed at the shadow tours, you can find media all over from the Roxy. If you want some exclusive and amazing quality videos from our members who were fortunate enough to attend, you can find them on our Taylor Hicks Community media board in our Shadow Tours section. Our members also brought back some gorgeous photos!
Be sure to check your area for "Grease" and if you are lucky, also find a shadow tour which features the new music of Taylor Hicks from his great new CD. Taylor is trying to schedule a shadow show in most of the venue cities, so there is a good chance you can find one near you. Get up and close and personal in an intimate setting, where you can experience the blue eyed soul sound of Taylor Hicks singing his early works and new songs. You won't soon forget it!
