All These Lives
Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
Chris Daughtry may have come in fourth in 2006's American Idol, but he just may win himself a career after all. There are a host of would-be singles on Daughtry's debut album, and many were written or co-written by Daughtry himself. The first hit is the Nickelback soundalike "It's Not Over," featuring a huge, anthemic chorus. Other highlights include Daughtry's own composition, "Home," as well as "Used To," "Over You" and "There and Back Again," a Soundgarden-esque song co-written by Shinedown's Brent Smith.
