Travelin’ Taylor Tour: Taylor Hicks, Live at 35

Explorer C

Hello, this is your Soul Patrol Captain speaking …Taylor Hicks!  There’s definitely a reason why Taylor Hicks is one of the most beloved American Idol winners.  Not only can the guy give an electrifying performance at 35,000 feet in the air, but his heart, charisma, and passion truly put the “soul” in “Soul Patrol.”

All the way from Birmingham, Alabama, Taylor’s toe tappin’ tunes reflect the unique influence of Southern soul, country, and blues.  And once Taylor gets goin’ on his harmonica, get ready for a series of jazzy riffs that both surprise and delight! 

Where can you find Taylor Hicks now?  If he’s not bringing the roadhouse to another Southwest Airlines flight, he’s headlining at Paris Las Vegas on the Las Vegas Strip.

And did you know that his journey to fame all began with Southwest?  Check out the video to hear Taylor Hicks tell his incredible story!
