Chris Daughtry’s “Life After You” Is Too Much Of The Same Thing

Chris Daughtry is one of my favorite vocalists to emerge from “American Idol,” but is the platinum-selling howler getting stuck in a rut?

His new single “Life After You” is certainly catchy, well-produced, and vocally strong, but it falls into an overly familiar pattern established by his last three singles (“No Surprise”, “What About Now,” and “Feels Like Tonight”).

Adult Top 40 radio stations will no doubt add this rock ballad to their playlists, but I’m ready to hear him shake things up a bit.

What do you think?
