This week, 19 Recordings’ Dove Award-winning artist and Season 11 American Idol finalist, Colton Dixon, has released his highly anticipated sophomore album, Anchor. The album quickly climbed the iTunes overall albums chart to No. 4 and remaining in the Top 10 throughout this week, as well as holding strong at No.1 on the Christian & Gospel albums chart.
The radio single “More of You” continues to climb radio charts landing this week at Number 16 on the National Audience chart with a total audience surpassing four million.
Dixon kicked off a New York City national press run this past Sunday with a performance of his hit radio single, “More of You,” live on “Fox & Friends.” Other media appearances included ABC News, Fox News, US Weekly, Christian Post and more. Dixon and his album has also been featured in this month’s HM Magazine and the cover of CCM Magazine. His peers, such as Idol alums Chris Daughtry and Phillip Phillips as well as Mac Powell, Mike Donehey, Newsboys’ Duncan Phillips, Kory Cooper and Jen Ledger of Skillet, and many others have also jumped on board this week sharing tweets about the release of ” Anchor”,
He was also named a finalist in the recent Ryan Seacrest online Fan-Favorite American Idol Contestant from past seasons – placing 3rd overall.
As with most artist, Dixon has taken his sophomore album as the opportunity to explore a different sound that certainly has fans, fellow musicians and critics jumping on board to say ” go buy it” and we couldn’t agree more.
