People that care about Taylor Hicks and enjoy his musical talents can not be explained to someone that does not get it. So, why try? Who cares?

Hey, I got news for you. Taylor has one of the most dedicated and devoted fanbases out there and a LOT of people care about him and his music. He ain't going anywhere anytime soon, so get used to it.

That said, thanks for visiting the world that is Taylor Hicks! Feel free to click on some music above in the player and open your mind to some great blues and soul music. Don't be afraid - Taylor doesn't bite. Who knows, you might actually like what you hear. And if not, oh well, your loss.

I'm getting very excited about Taylor's new CD.. WOOOO HOOOO!! I enjoy many of the artist mentioned and I am wondering if he might have a little bit of a country feel to the album? I know country music isn't the most popular genre these days, but I have always thought Taylor would fit in well with the "new" country.. not the old Loretta Lynn, George Jones types..haha
Either way, I will enjoy the CD.. I love his voice, he can sing anything and I know I will like it!

By the way, nice blog!! Thanks!
