About this show

On May 24, 2006, Taylor Hicks, Alabama's favorite son, made television history when audiences made that evening's American Idol finale one of the most watched television programs of the decade. It was an emotionally uplifting night when 36.4 million viewers tuned in and 63 million votes were cast to name Hicks the Season 5 winner of American Idol. It was Hicks' stage that evening and the applause has continued since, with his loyal following of fans cementing Hicks as one of America's favorite artists. 2009 was a turning point in Hicks' career, when through his own record company, Modern Whomp Records, his first independent album, "The Distance", was released, which includes the popular roadhouse single "Seven Mile Breakdown" and the soulful "What's Right is Right".
