Season 5
When I Fall In Love
Kevin Covais

I remember telling Kevin on the night he sang "When I Fall In Love" how much I enjoyed his performance. And I did! In addition to his music career, Kevin has also done as well as an actor.

A Different World
Bucky Covington

This was Bucky's first single to debut on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart; it peaked at No. 6 in 2007. It was from his self-titled first post-Idol album, which went to No. 1 on Billboard's country albums chart.

It's Not Over

It was a shock when Chris Daughtry was sent home in fourth place on season 5. The producers thought he was going to win. Still, Chris is one of the most successful Idols in the series' history, rocking the Billboard charts with his band, Daughtry. Chris co-wrote "It's Not Over" with three other people, including fellow season 5 finalist Ace Young.

Daughtry, newly signed to the Big Machine Label Group, is back in a big way with "Artificial."
