Colton Dixon is on his second album now and the quality keeps coming. I remember watching American idol the year before he was a top ten finalist and he didn't make the top 24 and I was surprised at the time because he clearly had real Rock Star potential. The next year he could have won, but left at 7th place. He performed lady gagas song Bad Romance and afterwards admitted his mistake. It is a creapy song. He lost the Christian vote and he knew it.
Yet he's come a long way from there to make another fine Christian album. His first album won best rock album of the year at the Christian (Dove) music awards. I really like how he has a short clip from one of billy Graham's sermons on one song and a line from a speech by Ronald Reagan repeated on another song. These are very clever additions to a strong album. It's not super overt in its Christian message except on the song "Dare to Believe" which is basically the whole gospel message in one song.
