CHRIS Daughtry rose to fame following a stint on season five of singing competition American Idol.
The singer and songwriter ended up finishing in fourth place, and released his wildly successful self-titled debut album shortly after.
What are Chris Daughtry's most popular songs?
After gaining national popularity through American Idol, Chris Daughtry signed with RCA Records and 19 Entertainment, where he soon after formed his own band: Daughtry.
Daughtry's first album was released in November of 2006, where it soon reached number one on the Billboard charts.
Here's an in-depth look at some of Daughtry's music.
A single off of Daughtry's debut album, Over You is one of the most popular rock songs in recent history.
The song is reportedly a breakup song, according to Chris himself. It's meant to focus on the difficulties of trying to get over someone you once loved.
On September 20, 2007, a music video for Over You was released on VH1. The video stars Gossip Girl actress Jessica Szohr.
Home is a song Chris wrote while he was in-between auditioning for Idol and heading to Hollywood. The song is meant to encapsulate the feelings he had while he considered his life might never be the same should his dreams come true.
The video was filmed in Chris' hometown, Greensboro, North Carolina.
It's Not Over
Daughtry's debut single was It's Not Over. The song was certified platinum by the RIAA after rising to fourth on the Billboard Hot 100 list.
Lyrics from the song include:
"Let's start over / I'll try to do it right this time around / It's not over / 'Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground / This love is killing me, but you're the only one / It's not over".
What About Now
This ballad song is one of the only songs on Daughtry that was not co-written by Chris. Its songwriters include Ben Moody, David Hodges, and Josh Hartzler.
In July of 2008, a music video for the song premiered. The video covered an array of topics, from poverty to natural disasters and war.
Feels Like Tonight
When asked about this song, Chris Daughtry has said he wasn't really a part of the process.
"I remember getting this song and I was like, 'No, no, I’m not cutting it, it’s way too pop,'" he said to Entertainment Weekly in 2016.
"'It’s so not with the rest of the record.' I was really being a bull about it. I remember being told, 'This was the song that they wrote for you had you won the show.' And I was like, 'Well now I definitely don’t want to do it!'
"Anyway, I appeased them and I recorded it and then I remember hearing it back and going 'OK, you were right, this was definitely a good idea.' And it became one of our bigger songs. I still don’t know what it means."
As You Are
As You Are is a song written mainly by Deanna Daughtry, the wife of Chris. The song covers her journey to acceptance with her identity as a bisexual woman.
The song and music video were released in 2018.
Some of the touching lyrics include:
"You can come out of the shadows / They are only scared of what they don't know / But I love you as you are, love you as you are, yeah / Yeah, you waged this war within yourself / Wasting time dying in a shell /They don't define you, just know they never will".
