`American Idol' finalist Chris Daughtry to perform free concert in North Carolina

"American Idol" finalist Chris Daughtry will perform a free concert in downtown Greensboro on March 23.
Over the past year, Daughtry, 27, has gone from a local musician to a fourth-place "Idol" finish and a top-selling album.
Daughtry's band, called Daughtry, released their self-titled debut album on Nov. 21. "Daughtry," released on Sony BMG's RCA label, has sold nearly 1.3 million copies and hit No. 1 this week on the strength of its first single, "It's Not Over."
While many observers billed Daughtry as the favorite to win "Idol" last year, he was voted off News Corp.'s Fox network talent show a few weeks before its finale. Southern soul singer Taylor Hicks took the competition's top award _ a $1 million (euro770,000) recording contract.
The cost for the concert was not released, and organizers said it is in flux. They expect to recoup most of the cost through concession sales and sponsorships.
