Matt Giraud and Michael Sarver are both hard at work on their post-Idol careers.
Matt is currently in Nashville, set to write with some award winning songwriters, including Monty Powell who won Songwriter of the Year at the recent SESAC awards, and Marcus Hummon. Plus, Matt is recording a song for a duets album. He tweeted today:
This album I’m working on will have some amazing legendary and contemporary artists like ray price and Rascal Flatts, and me!! excited! It’s a duet album with a jazz singer named Anna Wilson. Gonna be great. Even bigger names to come. I’m singing the tune “You Don’t Know Me”
And Michael Sarver tweeted some good news today about his upcoming single to be released by Dream Center/Universal records:
My single will be released on iTunes on December 8th. Very cool. I am blessed. The single is called You Are and a bonus track will be released on the same day called Cinderella Girl!
I wrote You Are and Co-wrote Cinderella girl with the incredible Dave Hanley. We decided to do something a little extra and out of the ordinary by releasing a second song for those that like the up tempo. :)
Michael will be selling a CD version of the single/bonus track, plus NEW merchandise when he hits the road with Alexis Grace, David Hernandez and Gina Glocksen on the American Stars for the Holidays tour, beginning December 2 in Lakeland, FL.
