Chris Daughtry Makes ‘Every Moment Count’ with His Family – here was a time that Chris Daughtry stayed out every night, jamming onstage until dawn. But the rocker tells PEOPLE that those days are fewer and further between — replaced with the responsibilities of fatherhood and a growing social awareness. “Being a father has made me grow up,” Daughtry, 33, says. “Life is about more than just me. I’ve got a great wife, great kids and a great life now.” Sitting in his North Carolina home with his 2-year-old twins, Noah James and Adalynn Rose, Daughtry seems every bit the doting dad. As the toddlers start getting restless, he knows exactly what they need. “It’s almost nap time,” he says. “We like to keep them on a schedule.” – Read more at People

A Benefit for Jessica Wilson” to lend his support to a friend in need. #“It is great to be here,” Phillips said. “I want to help out.” #Albany’s music community staged the 10th annual fight cancer benefit with live music, a silent auction and prizes to help Jessica Wilson, a wife and mother who has been battling cancer since April 201 with her medical bills. – Read more at Albany Herald

    Heads up for anybody on the west coast. NBC usually shows the Golden Globes here live at 5:00, then repeats at 8:00 on tape delay. That way we can’t come here to find out who won before it shows in prime time on the west coast.

    “Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are set as co-hosts.”

    Looking forward to these two – smart and really funny ex-SNL alums.

  • Miz

    That was a really nice article on Chris Daughtry and his family. It’s good to read good things for a change.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    A very nice article, indeed. Loved this part:

    The tragedy has reminded Daughtry of the importance of family. “I’m not the type to give a lot of advice,” he says. “But to be a good dad, you have to be present. When I’m home, I’m home. I don’t work at home unless it’s after the kids go to bed. I don’t want my kids to say, ‘My dad never had time for me.’ They understand that there is a time I have to work, but when I come home, they need my undivided attention. I try to make every moment count.”

    Best article on Crystal’s new album, most continue to say is going to record in LA or Nashville. Truth is she’s done recording already…the gig on the 20th looks like it will be to heavy hitters in the industry.

    Kris is playing at Littlefields in Brooklyn, NY tonight

  • girlygirltoo

    The type is too small for me to read clearly on my phone, so where in that article does it say that gig will be for industry people?

    Its at sundance…private event.

    Although I do not particularly care for Daughtry’s music,  Chris is such a classy guy and I have so much respect for him. He is just a great example of a human being with gratitude for the gifts he has, as well as someone who totally has his priorities straight.  Wish him and his family the best.

    Vote For The Worst will be shutting down after this season of Idol:

    Really. I had no idea that site was still active.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I’m glad that VFTW will be shutting down. I never liked the founding premise of that site.

  • http://twitter.com/bagel08 John S

    Good! The owner there claims that they “accomplished their mission,” but the truth is, that site has been dying for a few years. 

  • http://twitter.com/evil_samy ginger

     This made me sad :(
    I’m a fan of the show but I’ve always loved VFTW. It’s the end of an (idol) era.

    ”Can’t belief they are talking about Adam and spinning his songs  for almost one hour !!”

    Crazy Right!!! New Zealand rocks! And Liam played Runnin’

    and oh, talking about Runnin’, I saw this somewhere. A  Lite Rock version of the song. Someone added a guitar mixed to the original sound.

    Another one: Cuckoo

    Runnin’ shows off his vocals, but Cuckoo is a hoot – so much fun.  Thanks for these.

  • mmmtx

    Thanks for the link to the article about Crystal! I really hope this is just the beginning of a stellar career for her.  Plus it was a treat to revisit her video for Farmers Daughter!

  • Axxxel

    Love that “little Rock version” of Running !! really hope that Adam’s 3rd album goes in the popROCK direction again, with even more Rock than in his debut album.
