publish date: 2017-09-27
Taylor Hicks captivated viewers with his fifth season win on American Idol in 2006 with his blue-eyed soul stylings. Hicks takes a lot of pride in his music – and all things Alabama. He says whether you’re in his native Birmingham, the Hank Williams region of Montgomery, or Muscle Shoals in the northwestern part of the state, there’s something about his home state’s musical legacy to be excited about. In discussing the latter, Hicks says the town -- which has attracted artists such as The Rolling Stones, Cher, The Staples Singers and Gregg Allman, who cut his last album Southern Blood at the iconic Fame studios -- easily lives up to its musical reputation.
