‘American Idol’ Alum Joins Rascal Flatts on Top of Charts

Filed under: ,

After ‘American Idol’ season six finalist Chris Sligh was voted off the show in March 2007, he headed for Nashville. And when the curly-haired, bespectacled singer-songwriter is in Music City, you can often find him hanging with other ex-Idols like Phil Stacey and Bo Bice, who’ve also made Nashville their home. But mostly, Sligh keeps himself busy touring, and writing and recording music for the contemporary Christian market. He’s even up for a Dove Award this week, nominated as Best New Artist.

But Sligh has also, somewhat unexpectedly, found a measure of success in country music, thanks to Rascal Flatts. The group’s latest single, ‘Here Comes Goodbye,’ which Sligh wrote with his friend Clint Lagerberg, just reached No. 1. It’s also featured on the trio’s chart-topping ‘Unstoppable’ album. Sligh is still finding himself trying to determine the significance of it all.
