The Joy Ride 12/02/13

Josh Millwood - Monday, December 02, 2013
All week long we'll be chatting with some hit makers, all on the Hits Deep tour - hitting the Eastern Shore this coming Sunday!

Colton Dixon

Colton Dixon came in 7th on the 11th season of American Idol (after trying out multiple times). The singer/songwriter is originally from Murfreesboro, TN (a suburb of Nashville) so he grew up in the heart of the Christian music scene. His father owns an airbrush/face painting business and he and his younger sister (Schyler) started their musical career in a brother/sister garage band called Messenger!

Colton sang for his school choir, wrote songs with his sister and even landed a role as an extra in the Hannah Montana movie - all before his biggest break on American Idol. This past January, when Colton Dixon's first full length album A Messenger was released, it debuted at #15 on the Billboard Hot 200, #1 on the U.S. Christian Chart and #1 on the U.S. Gospel Chart.
