I have to confess, Daughtry is one of my current favorite bands.  I have seen them in concert twice now, and will see them a third time this coming Wednesday, May 19th at the Target Center in Minneapolis.  My friends and I have front row, and I couldn’t be more excited!

As most people know, Daughtry appeared on American Idol last Wednesday night.  They performed “September,” which is a track off of their latest album, “Leave This Town.”  This particular song holds a special place in Chris Daughtry’s heart, as it is a reminiscence of his childhood.  It is a personal favorite of mine as well.

I was surprised to see that Chris Daughtry looked so nervous during his performance.  When I have seen him in concert, he seems to be so at home on the stage.  He looked like the shy newbie he was when he first performed on American Idol.  It was kind of endearing to know that after a lot of touring and two wonderful albums, he is not jaded.

Looking forward to May 19th!  It cannot come fast enough for me!
