NASHVILLE, Tenn. – GRAMMY® winning American Idol Taylor Hicks makes spirits bright this holiday season as he releases "Jingle Bells" today. The harmonica-wielding, platinum-selling recording artist delivers a soulful take on the Christmas classic. Released via Epochal Artists / TLG / INgrooves, "Jingle Bells" is available to stream and download HERE.

The festive release wraps up a whirlwind year for Hicks who released his first single in 14 years this past February. Hicks debuted "Porch Swing" live on “The Bobby Bones Show” and also performed the ballad on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” and “Huckabee.”Taste of Country described the song as "an easygoing, romantic soul melody that stays faithful to several of his diverse musical influences and home genres," while People compared Hicks' "bluesy and soulful sound" to Tyler Childers and Chris Stapleton.

Hicks followed the release of "Porch Swing" with "Teach Me to Dance," a sentimental waltz, timed perfectly with Father's Day weekend and his Grand Ole Opry debut. Forbes deemed the song "certain to land on plenty of wedding playlists," writing, "Showcased by Hicks’ soulful country vocals and signature thoughtfulness, 'Teach Me to Dance' is a country waltz that brings listeners back to the dance floor in a nostalgic and thoughtful nod to the power of relationships, first dances and wedding memories."

The Alabama native has also maintained a busy touring schedule. Earlier this week, Hicks performed during "A Heroes & Friends Tribute to Randy Travis. 1 Night. 1 Place. 1 Time" at the Propst Arena at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Ala. This year also found Hicks traveling to eight military bases on an Armed Forces Entertainment tour, where he entertained troops across the Middle East in Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordan and Djibouti. His upcoming tour dates include stops in Red Bluff, Calif., Birmingham, Ala., Columbiana, Ala., Franklin, Tenn. and Montgomery, Ala. Full list of dates below.

For Taylor Hicks, winning "American Idol's" blockbuster fifth season was just the beginning. Hailed as “part Stax, part Motown and part honky-tonk” by The New York Times, Hicks’ intoxicating blend of soul, blues, country, and rock 'n' roll quickly rendered him a household name as he progressed to the show’s record-breaking finale in 2006, a historic television event which drew an audience of more than 200 million viewers. Hicks immediately followed his "American Idol" victory with a No. 1 Billboard single and an RIAA®-certified platinum debut, and soon went on to make history as both the first male "American Idol" champion featured on a GRAMMY®-winning record (Jimmy Fallon’s Blow Your Pants Off), and the first to land a prestigious Las Vegas residency. A versatile artist, actor and advocate, Hicks has since ventured into theater, television and film, starring in Serenbe Playhouse's 2019 production of "Shenandoah," touring as Teen Angel in the popular Broadway musical “Grease” in addition to appearing on “Law & Order: SVU” and hosting the INSP series “State Plate,” which won the Cynopsis TV Award for Best Reality Series (Travel). Hicks’ passion for southern cuisine led him back to his native Alabama, where he opened up SAW's Juke Joint, a restaurant crowned one of the “25 Best Barbecue Spots in America” by Men’s Journal.
