Daughtry Added to Country Music Awards Line Up

Daughtry has been added to the line -up of the Country Music Awards.

Founder and editor of mjsbigblog.com, home of the awesomest fan community on the net. I love cheesy singing shows of all kinds, whether reality or scripted. I adore American Idol, but also love The Voice, Glee, X Factor and more!


  1. I love the song “Tennesse Line”. Chris Daughtry has a really neat quality to his voice when he sings ballads. I’ve gone away from the country genre in the last few years, but my husband and daughter still listen avidly, so I’m sure I’ll see this perfomance.

  2. So what’s happened to the Rock Gawd??? Now he’s trying country?

  3. I’m so excited for this! What an honor to perform with a Country superstar like Vince Gill.

  4. Jon Bon Jovi was a rock god for over 20 years when he decided to take a crack at country (and went on to win a Grammy for it). Nothing wrong with what Chris is doing. Exited to see this!

  5. Very exciting day…week actually for Daughtry fans!! I love Tennessee Line and one of the things that I love about Chris and the band is that they do whatever they feel like and whatever moves them when it comes to their music…they don’t suscribe to the labels or try to fit into any mold. They can totally rock…I’ve witnessed it many times and they can definitely work ballads and country as well.

    I absolutely can’t wait for this performance!! It’ll probably be the only time we get to see it live as it is on the CD.

  6. The only thing more “shocking” than a “rawk gawd” singing a cover is a “rawk gawd” singing country, LOL. Where the hell did all these rules come from that artists aren’t allowed to cross genres? Johnny Cash must be spinning in his grave (again!).
