Taylor Hicks is the Season 5 winner of American Idol. Hicks' star continued to rise after he stepped off the Idol stage. Less than three weeks after his victory, his debut single, "Do I Make You Proud," entered at #1 on Billboard's Hot 100, Pop 100, and Single Sales Charts. Coinciding with the single's release, a cover story named him People magazine's "Hottest Bachelor of the Year." His self-titled album (Arista), debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 and was quickly certified RIAA Platinum. In 2007, Hicks penned a brisk-selling autobiography "Heart Full of Soul" (Random House).

Hicks also starred as Teen Angel on Broadway in Grease, won a Grammy Award for his participation in a performance of Rebecca Black’s “Friday” (featured on Jimmy Fallon’s “Blow Your Pants Off” comedy album) was the first Idol to headline a residency in Las Vegas (ahead of judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler). He also owns restaurants and is the host of the food and travel show, “State Plate.” The Soul Patrol can see Hicks live on Nov, 29 at City Winery in Nashville where he’ll perform “Night Moves: The Classic Songs of Bob Seger.”
