This Day in Pop Culture for October 19

Colton Dixon is Born
It was on this day in 1991 in Murfreesboro, Tennessee that Michael Colton Dixon was born. During his high school years, Colton sang in the choir and played an extra in Hannah Montana: The Movie which came out in theaters in 2008. He and his sister, Schyler, auditioned for American Idol during the show’s tenth season but neither of them made it to the top 24 contestants. The following year, Colton went to the auditions for the show as a support for his sister with no intention of auditioning himself. He was encouraged to do so anyway. This time he made it through, but she did not. Making it to the top 25 that year, he was eliminated on April 19, 2012. However, in January 2013, Dixon released his first album, A Messenger with EMI-CMG/Sparrow Records. It sold 22,000 copies during the first week, made #15 on the Billboard 200 chart and #1 on the U.S. Christian Chart. In September 2015 was a busy month for Dixon as he released his second album, The Calm Before the Storm and he got engaged to Annie Coggeshall. The two were married on January 8, 2016. His third album, Identity, was released on March 24, 2017.
