Now let‘s get back to our main topic and discuss the sources of Taylor Hicks net worth. The Singer ascended to stardom in 2006, when he was already well in his twenties. That year he participated in fifth season of reality television singing competition American Idol , which began on January 17, 2006, and concluded on May 24, 2006, and won the first place. Following this he released the eponymous studio album, which received mixed critical reviews, but fared well commercially, peaking at No. 2 on Billboard 200. A couple of years later Taylor released a second album, tilted Early Works. It was available exclusively at Target Stores until November 24, 2008, when it was released to iTunes and other various online retailers. Unfortunately for the singer, this record was not particularly popular among a wider audience. The third and so far the last one of Taylor‘s albums was released in 2009. Once again, it experienced a moderate commercial success, selling over 9000 copies during the first week, and received mixed to positive critical reviews. For example, after listening to The Distances (yes, that‘s the name of the album) Allmusic wrote: “Hicks doesn’t show great sensitivity as an interpreter(…) but as an entertainer he pulls out all the stops, determined to get every last person in the joint to crack a smile.“
Not only his career in music industry determines the rapid growth of Taylor Hicks net worth, it also gives him pleasure and satisfaction with life. The singer has once said: “My work, to me, never gets old. … I’m coming up on a decade in show business, believe it or not, and I couldn’t be any prouder of that.”
