What About Daughtry
Multi-platinum, GRAMMY-nominated rock group Daughtry was featured at American Express Presents An Evening With Daughtry at the GRAMMY Museum on Sept. 14. Along with producer Howard Benson, the band members from Daughtry discussed topics such as their career, songwriting, touring, influences, and the creative process behind their most recent album, Leave This Town. The discussion was moderated by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli, and was followed by an intimate set before a crowd of 200.

Their sophomore album, Leave This Town, was released in 2009, debuting at No. 1 and spawning the Top 20 hit "No Surprise." Daughtry is currently rounded out by rhythm guitarist Brian Craddock, drummer Robin Diaz, bassist Josh Paul, and lead guitarist Josh Steely.
