The winner of this year’s “American Idol” now has a video for his single “Live Like We’re Dying.” Yah, that Kris Allen guy. His single has yet to make it to the top 40 and is now at No. 42 on the Hot AC charts. At least it’s still climbing. It’s actually a pretty catchy tune, even if the title evokes that Tim McGraw song.
In the video, Kris sings in what appears to be an abandoned warehouse with a black grand piano, ripped drapes, wind tunnels and a clock that is ticking downward. The song title says it all.
-I’ve procured an interview with David Cook next week. Please email me your questions for him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cook fans, please send this out to the fan pages so we can spread the word! He’s coming to the Tabernacle on November 23.
- The parent company of “American Idol,” CKX Inc. reported a fall in revenue of about $10 million in the third quarter. It was related to a dropoff in “Idol” tour sponsorship (note those Pop Tarts were absent) and reduced music and management revenue.
- Carrie Underwood’s “Play On” is set to sell about 300,000 copies the first week, Billboard said. That’s way down from the 527,000 “Carnival Ride” sold its first week on the way to nearly 3 million copies. But the times are far different now. Sales keep on falling across the board so relatively speaking, 300K is not bad.
