Season 8 Idol, Matt Giraud’s new single “Thank You” is a collaboration with songwriter and pianist Jim Brickman, who, according to his wiki, is the most charted male adult contemporary artist to date! (is that really true?)
Brickman has had successful collaborations with artists such as Michael W. Smith, Martina McBride, Lady Antebellum and Donny Osmond, and I suppose Matt is hoping tome of that success rubs off as his brand-new single is released to radio today.
The arrangement is sweet, and super-smooth, and Matt’s vocals are like buttuh, but I can’t hear the tune on any other format than Adult Contemporary. I’m hoping next time, Matt rocks out in the way we KNOW he can.
Nevertheless–Good luck Matt with the new song!
