Taylor Hicks Pictures from the Alabama Hall of Fame Ceremony!

Taylor was looking mighty fine indeed at the Alabama Hall of Fame Dinner and Induction Ceremony tonight. Isn't he always the most gracious, humble, appreciative and hottest man at these formal affairs he's been attending lately - sorta like a shining diamond? Forget the Grammy's - Taylor got to share the stage with some real legends of the music industry - Percy Sledge, The Commodores and Kris Kristofferson just to name a few and be honored with the American Music Award on top of it! It's about f*cking time Taylor got some recognition for the long road he's traveled to get to this point. Yes Taylor, you DO make us proud in every sense of the word. Taylor had his family and friends with him and said that getting the American Music Award was coming full circle for him.
He belted out Chris Tompkins' "Before He Cheats," the song that won a Grammy for Carrie Underwood last week (hey, at least it wasn't a Daughtry song - that would have sucked!). Tomkins, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Walt Aldridge and Donnie Fritts, backed up Taylor's vocals with crowd-pleasing piano, guitar and harmonica. Taylor also sang "Soul Thing" at the show.

Posing with a lucky fan!
With Governor Riley of Alabama

Cannot wait for any media of Taylor singing Before He Cheats! Kind of wondering why Angela Hacker did not do it? But very intrigued by what he did with the song.Very sweet tribute to the songwriter who probably gets considerably less very public acclaim. Great media Griz--as always!

I can't even imagine Taylor singing Before He Cheats cuz that's such a twangy country song that I can't believe Taylor would attempt that, but then, he never stops amazing me, so maybe he pulled it off good! I can't wait to see it either!
