Ok, here it is...Chris' Bio, found at: http://www.hunkymalecelebs.com/chris_daughtry/
Christopher Jacob Daughtry is originally from Lasker, North Carolina. When he was a teenager, he and his family moved to Virginia. According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the diminutive Daughtry graduated from Fluvanna County High School in Palmyra, Virginia in 1998. The 26-year-old vocalist is married with two children from his wife's first marriage. He is the lead singer of the North Carolina-based rock band Absent Element, a band with at least two self-produced CDs, a wide following and airplay on Raleigh's WBBB 96.1 FM contemporary rock station. His day job is as a service advisor with a car dealership in Greensboro, North Carolina.
In a segment on the 2006 season of American Idol, Daughtry revealed he is afflicted with alopecia and maintains a shaved head in an effort to maintain an asthetically pleasing appearance.
Inspired by Bo Bice, Daughtry auditioned for American Idol in Denver, Colorado with Joe Cocker's "The Letter"; he was portrayed as a young rocker with Southern and hard rock influences. He passed the audition by a split decision with Idol judge Simon Cowell saying no.
On March 1, 2006, Chris's "raw" performance of Fuel's "Hemorrhage (In My Hands)" received critical acclaim by all three judges. On March 3, 2006, judge Randy Jackson stated in an interview that Chris had been offered the opportunity to become Fuel's new lead singer. As of March 4, 2006, the band's official website was advertising for a new lead singer and mentioned that Chris Daughtry's performance had impressed them.
Daughtry has also played guitar on Idol in group performances. Daughtry's fan's on AmericanIdol.com's message boards are commonly known as the "Daughtribe" or "Chrisaders", though there are many other smaller fan groups.
He has a wife and a seven-year-old daughter and five-year-old son from his wife's previous marriage.
