Chris Daughtry stands as one of American Idol's most beloved — and commercially successful — rock and roll alums. Immediately following his adrenalin-filled run on the show in 2006, Daughtry formed his eponymous band, topping the Billboard 200 just a few months later with a self-titled debut album. Since then, the band has continued to give the epic performances fans remember from Daughtry's Idol days, hitting the road again in 2014 with the Goo Goo Dolls and the Plain White T's for one of the year's most anticipated rock tours.
Daughtry was formed in 2006 after frontman Chris Daughtry made a name for himself as a finalist on the fifth season of American Idol. Passing up an offer to become the lead singer of hard rock legends Fuel upon exiting the show, Daughtry instead rounded up a talented group of players for his namesake band, making good on the promise he exhibited on Idol with a chart-topping 2006 debut album. The following year, the band took home the Top New Artist prize at the Billboard Music Awards, setting the stage for the success of 2009 sophomore album Leave This Town — another No. 1. In late 2013, the band released their fourth studio album Baptized to a Top 10 spot on the Billboard 200, hitting the road for a tour in support of the release with the Goo Goo Dolls and the Plain White T's.
