Their debut album, the self-titled Daughtry, was the top-selling album of 2007, producing 4 Top 20 Platinum-selling singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and became the fastest-selling rock debut album in Soundscan history. It was also nominated for 4 Grammy Awards and won 4 American Music Awards and 7 Billboard Music Awards including Album of the Year. The subsequent albums, Leave This Town (2009), Break The Spell (2011), Baptized (2013) and Cage To Rattle (2018) were all certified Gold and placed in the top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart. In 2020, Daughtry released their newest single, World On Fire, which marked their return to their rock roots and the top of the Rock Charts in the US.
Black Stone Cherry
Kentucky rockers Black Stone Cherry employ a fiery yet rootsy mix of hard rock and post-grunge/heavy metal that invokes names like Stone Sour, Theory of a Deadman, Buckcherry, and Shinedown. Woolly, dirty, and uncompromising, the band's self-released Rock N' Roll Tape in 2003 netted the attention of Roadrunner, which signed them after witnessing audience reactions to their endless touring. Their self-titled debut for the label appeared in 2006 to rave reviews from the rock press. In early August, they issued a lyric video for set opener "Ringin' in My Head," and followed it two weeks later with a video single for "Again." In late October, Black Stone Cherry released The Human Condition through the Mascot Label Group.
