NASHVILLE, Tenn. (November 16, 2015) – Taylor Hicks, one of America’s most beloved musical artists, is wrapping up 2015 on a high note with several performances that are reminding fans across the world of his deep and varied musical talent.
On November 11, the singer took part in a special Veterans Day event held in Foothill Ranch, CA. Hicks performed the National Anthem and an intimate acoustic performance of his song "Nineteen" for Infinite Hero Foundation’s Racing to Reimagine Recovery Race. In addition to sharing his musical gifts, Hicks also took part in various events which included a motorcycle tribute ride, hosted by John Paul DeJoria’s Peace*Love*Happiness Charity co-founder Gary Spellman, Medal of Honor recipient and former Army Sgt. Kyle Jerome White and former Navy SEAL Jason "Jay" Redman, and a Racing to Reimagine gala event. Infinite Hero Foundation combats the most difficult front line issues – mental and physical – facing military heroes and their families.
Just a few days prior, Hicks brought his music to the Grand-Reopening of Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The singer wowed the crowd with his blue-eyed soul stylings by joining forces with cover band Liquid Blue. The collaboration took place to celebrate the rebuilding of the hotel, which had been tragically demolished by a hurricane. The Hilton resort underwent a multimillion-dollar fixup after being extensively damaged by Hurricane Odile in September 2014. The musical chemistry between Hicks and Liquid Blue was so tight and harmonious that the staff and management at the Hilton are making plans to have them return soon.
The next few weeks are going to be exciting ones for Hicks’ fans. While Taylor puts the finishing touches on his new album to be released in early 2016, two of his albums – 1997’s In Your Time and 2005’s Under The Radar will be released November 19th in their limited editions digitally for the first time. In Your Time features a brand new recording of "Somehow,” while the latter album will give fans the opportunity to hear an unreleased track, “No Place I’d Rather Be.”
