    Daughtry is an American post-grunge band from North Carolina, formed by former American Idol contestant Chris Daughtry in 2006. Their self-titled debut album was released on November 21, 2006. The disc reached #1 for two non-consecutive weeks on the Billboard 200, outsold Idol winner Taylor Hicks' debut effort, and sold more than 3 million copies. Their album is also the fastest-selling debut rock album in Soundscan historyFormer American Idol season 5 fourth-place finisher Chris Daughtry stated that he would form a new band after turning down Fuel's offer to make him their lead singer.[2] On July 10, 2006 it was announced that Chris had signed with 19 Entertainment and RCA Records, which holds contracts with fellow American Idol finalists Kelly Clarkson, Bo Bice, Kellie Pickler and Katharine McPhee.

    Chris is a singer-songwriter himself and has collaborated with several other songwriters, such as Live's Ed Kowalczyk, Fuel's Carl Bell, Brad Arnold of 3 Doors Down, Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty, SR-71 singer Mitch Allan,[3] Brent Smith of Shinedown and Chad Kroeger of Nickelback. Hit writers Dr. Luke and Max Martin also lent their expertise to the album. Session drummer Josh Freese played drums on all the tracks for the album.

    Daughtry himself didn't have much of a hand in who was in his new band. Chris's label chose band mates for Daughtry: Jeremy Brady, 21, a guitarist and at this point no longer in the band; Josh Steely, 36, as lead guitarist; Josh Paul, 29, as bassist who also played for Suicidal Tendencies; Joey Barnes, 30, as drummer. Interestingly, two of the band members hail from North Carolina - Joey, whom Chris had known for some time, and Jeremy, who was introduced to him a month before the audition. Steely and Paul are both from California.[4]

    The first single from the album, "It's Not Over," debuted on the radio on December 6, 2006, after being delayed from a planned September release.[3] The self-titled[5] debut album, which was produced by Howard Benson, was released by 19 Entertainment and RCA Records on November 21, 2006.[3] The song was an instant success, shooting up the Billboard Hot 100 reaching #4 and hitting the top 3 in several other charts. "It's Not Over" bears a somewhat strong resemblance to Fuel's hit song "Hemorrhage (In my Hands)" (the two songs share a similar key and chord progression, among other elements), which Chris Daughtry performed on American Idol on March 1, 2006.

    Jeremy Brady's departure from Daughtry was announced on January 26, 2007.[6]

    The second single from the album, "Home" is currently at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100, after debuting at #83 weeks ahead of its official release to radio. The song was also the official "kick off" song on sixth season of American Idol, in which it was played after a contestant was voted off the show.

    The song is also a very positive one currently being played on Christian Radio stations all across the nation.
