Taylor Hicks Spotted in Aspen, CO!

According to an article in the Toronto Star, Taylor was recently spotted at the Aspen, CO airport. Could he have taken a much needed skiing vacation hobnobbing with the Hollywood elite? Say what you want, the guy loves to pamper himself with everything from vacationing on the private island of Cayo Espanto off the coast of Belize to taking on the snow covered slopes of Colorado. I hope he got to see the John Denver display in the Rio Grand area in Aspen - an area where he wrote many of his beautiful inspirational songs. Let's hope it inspired Taylor to do the same!

The article reads in part:

"...But to really celeb spot, you need to be here at Christmas or holidays, when the permanent population of about 7,000 can quadruple and regulars such as singer Seal and his wife Heidi Klum, Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, Jack Nicholson and Jennifer Lopez take to the streets, the stores and the slopes.

Used to be they'd be treated just like locals, but Hawn has complained even out-of-the-way Aspen isn't the discreet getaway from the paparazzi that it once was.

Try as you may, it's almost impossible not to get caught up in the talent tally. I was embarrassed to find myself text messaging my kids to alert them that I was standing just feet from American Idol winner Taylor Hicks at Aspen airport and that I'd passed filmmaker Steven Spielberg on the street.

"That's a good (sighting). I'm impressed by that," confessed one local. "Everybody wants to know who's here, but the fact is you might never see them...."

I think it is wonderful that Taylor is able to enjoy the finer things in life...or better yet, the things that he enjoys. It does my heart good to know that he is not burdened with lack of funds, he deserves everything he gets as he has brought us back REAL MUSIC...I thank him and wish him many wonderful trips to far away places.

I wonder if he had a snowbunny with him? LOL Sounds like a great place for a get-a-way.

After all Taylor has given us, and the charities he supports, he deserves the best this world has to offer. I am so very happy he has the means and opportunities to do the things he enjoys. Taylor, take your time, enjoy yourself, and keep smiling! Have a wonderful time and stop into southeastern Connecticut soon!
