Born Christopher Adam Daughtry on December 26, 1979, in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, he is living proof that American Idol could give birth to a successful rocker outside the context of the show. The fourth-place finalist on the fifth season of American Idol in 2006, Daughtry signed a record deal with RCA Records after his elimination from the show. Only few months later, he released his debut album along with his newly-formed band Daughtry. The album climbed to number one position and secured a Grammy nomination on the way, as well as he rose to be the third highest selling "American Idol" album. With the band, he saw the release of three more albums: Leave This Town (2009), Break The Spell (2011) and Baptized (2013). What's more, the band was nominated for Best Rock Song for the single "It's Not Over" at the 50th Grammy Awards. Daughtry's powerful vocal belting technique and wide vocal range could be also heard in some side projects as he has collaborated with several artists, including Slash, Sevendust, Theory of a Deadman, Chad Kroeger, Brad Arnold and Carlos Santana.
