Z-100 yesterday debuted Kris Allen’s first single ‘Live Like We’re Dying.’
Okay, ‘No Boundaries’ was his first single in reality but we’d all like to pretend that never happened. It’s jaunty and upbeat, very pop friendly.
Check it out here:
His album is set to come out November 17.
It’s worth reading. He’s clear headed and realistic. He also noted that Jared Cotter from his season, who just missed the top 12 season six co-wrote “Down,” a huge hit with Jay Sean. I didn’t even know that. Kudos to Jared!
So, my message to Season 8. You’re not going to be successful. You’re not going to be millionaires (with the exception of MAYBE Kris and Adam). You are going to struggle. No one will care about you. Those fans who’ve been asking for your autograph all tour long – 98% of them don’t give a flying poo about you once next season of Idol starts. They’re not going to buy your album when you put it out 2 years late. Chances are you’ll never feel the rush of playing in front 10,000 people who care about you again. Your star is waning and remarkably quickly.
Chris admits he’s not a star. And he has to travel in a van. But he makes a living doing music. And he’s happy about that. Go Chris!
