The North Carolina band has earned four No. 1 singles, including the multi-format No. 1 song “It’s Not Over.” Daughtry’s self-titled debut was the fastest-selling rock debut in tracking history and its follow up, “Leave This Town,” marked the quintet’s second consecutive No. 1 album. Daughtry’s third album, “Break the Spell,” was certified gold within four weeks of its release, while their last studio effort, “Baptized,” produced the certified gold single “Waiting for Superman.” Daughtry’s album “It’s Not Over… The Hits So Far” is out now.

Chris Daughtry has appeared in “CSI: NY,” “Riggle’s Picks,” and skits for Funny or Die.

His prolific philanthropic pursuits raise 10s of thousands of dollars annually for the likes of the USO, Make a Wish Foundation, Alzheimer’s Association, Musicians on Call, and Save the Music Foundation. Daughtry also starred as the disciple Judas in the Fox live television event “The Passion” last year.
