Another reason to attend Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2012... Daughtry!

If you are a fan of good rock music, then here's another reason for you to attend Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2012 in Houston, Texas... Daughtry will be live at the Convergence Reception.

Daughtry is an American rock band formed and fronted by American Idol Season 5 finalist Chris Daughtry in 2006. Their self-titled debut album was released in 2006. The disc reached number one for two non-consecutive weeks on the Billboard Top 200, sold more than four million copies and was named the number one selling album of 2007 by Billboard. Their album is also the fastest-selling debut rock album in Soundscan history. The first single from the album, "It's Not Over", was the eighth most played song across all formats on U.S. radio in 2007, and their second single from the album, "Home", was the tenth most played song in the U.S. of 2007. The band's second album, Leave This Town, was released in July 2009. The first single, "No Surprise," was released on May 5. "No Surprise" was written by Chris Daughtry with Chad Kroeger and Eric Dill. The band's third studio album, Break the Spell was released in November 2011.

On a personal note, I had a chance to see Daughtry opening for Bon Jovi at the Phillips Arena in Atlanta in Spring of 2008 and I have to say, these guys are superb artists and entertainers.

What are you waiting for? Register for Convergence now and don't miss the fun! Also, make sure you brush up on your Daughtry lyrics.

And now I leave you with one of my favorite Daughtry songs, "Over You" - and a question that's been lingering in my mind... how did this guy not win American Idol Season 5?

Until next post!
