American Idol's Colton Dixon In Talks With Daughtry & Lifehouse
While Colton Dixon may have been eliminated from ‘American Idol’ he is already said to be in talks with Chris Daughtry and Jason Wade of Lifehouse, as confirmed by Digital Spy.
Talking to MTV News, Colton shared some promising details about his future after being voted off the music competition. "I had dinner with Chris Daughtry and there's the option of writing with him, which would be amazing. And Jason Wade of Lifehouse called me up after I did his song and was interested in writing."
Dixon also shared that he’s happy to get some sound advice from a talent like Chris Daughtry. "I'm definitely trying to get as much advice from Chris on the future as possible. Just to help model my career after things that he has done, because he's done a phenomenal job of just going for it even after getting voted off fourth. I'm hoping I can make the most out of top seven." It turns out that the two have a lot in common. "He's such a great guy, genuine guy, we talked about whatever, Jesus, life, we talked about Batman for probably 30 minutes, we're both Batman nerds," Colton added. "It's great to see established artists reaching out and trying to pull you up there."
Finishing in the seventh spot of Idol, Colton is currently working on his debut album, as well as making the promotional rounds. Dixon just made an appearance on the Ellen show. "I have multiple, multiple songs, it's gonna be hard choosing songs for a record, I'm going to be writing till my fingers bleed." He added, "I hope I get to incorporate some of my older stuff in there too because then I can make it come full circle for me and this record would mean that much more."
