the 2016 live television performance of The Passion, and even fulfilled a lifelong dream by drawing the cover of aBatmancomic which was rated one of the top 25 covers of the year by BatmanNews.com. This kind of ambition has also extended to the work of Daughtry the band. “We always tryto push ourselves outside of the familiar parameters,” says the singer. “If it’s anything like we’ve done before, then it’s not good enough for the record. “If you look atthe groups doing it for twenty-plus years,” he continues, “they were always changing their style, testing the water, going off the rails from what people expected—Zeppelin, Elton, Prince, they never did the same record twice. So there’s always that effort to push yourself as an artist, but I never want to abandon that sense of melody and sense of something that people can grab onto, whether it conjures up memories or helps them through a tough time. That’s what I love about music, when it makes me feel something.”As the band continues work on its fifth album (which Daughtry describes in its early stages as having a “bluesy, almost rootsyundertone to it”), they look to contemporaries like Maroon 5 and Train as examples of acts able to maintain their relevance whilerock & roll faces an uphill struggle in the mass media. “Those guys are inspirational, showing that you can come back and have a strong presence, even if what you’re known for doing is having a hard time,” he says.Ten years after launching with a massive splash, Chris Daughtry claims that he and the band have grown the most on stage, and that it’s altered his whole sense of his work.“When we first came out, I’d only known what I’d seen,” he says. “I didn’t know how to be vulnerable, with no pretense. Now it’s walk onstageand, especially in our acoustic shows, just beflat-out honest and open. It’s really helped me realizethat’s actually what fans want—they want 100 percent honesty and feeling like they got to know you better.
