    My favorite song is Home- it really hits close to my heart for me. I was living in VA away from my family and in 2009 moved back to WA. This song pretty much sums up the reasons and way I felt about coming Home

    Favorite song is HOME because it just tells how I feel about being away from home. I am away because of school, but the message just goes with it. Being home just makes me feel like i'm in the right place.

    Traffic Light!! :)

  • Kathy

    My favorite Daughtry song has to be "Home".....at the time this particular song came out, my now husband and me hit some rough patches in our relationship....we had been living together for about 5 months, and I came home from work one day, and he was gone, and so was everything he owned....I was devastated to say the least, and my kids were, too...I drove forever to find him with no luck..after 2 days, he called and asked if he could come home..."Home" kept playing on the radio, and of course, I thought of us immediately...and so, this became my favorite song from Daughtry, and still holds a special place in my heart for me and my husband....

  • Jennifer Nelson Dyrdahl

    Hard choice, but my favorite song is Maybe We're Already Gone

  • Gina Bachman
    Gina Bachman

    Oh my goodness!! So hard to just pick one song. There is always so much meaning put into each song. I can relate to so many of the words. One of my favorite songs is "Home" I have been a fan from the beginning. I can only imagine how Chris' life has changed becoming a celebrity, but I have so much respect for him. He always talks about his wife and children. I admire that. I know that he must miss them so much at times. When I hear "Home" I think about his beautiful eyes and how he must feel getting to go home and trying to have a normal life.

    Well I have to agree with everyone else by saying who can choose just one favorite Daughtry song? Let's just say that there isn't a song that I don't like but if I have to choose one I will go with their first single It's not over. It got me hooked on them and there is no turning back.

  • Cherry Fralick

    Daughtry has been my therapy and escape since early high school. I remember dancing by the pool with my best friends to "No Surprise" when I was 17 and falling into the pool cause we were dancing so hard! My favorite song which has gotten me through a lot of stressful times has been "Drown In You" - a song they wrote for the Batman Arkham City Video Game. I saw them twice in Atlanta and plan on driving to see them for a third time in South Carolina next week. Thanks for the chance to win!

    My favorite song has got to be No Surprise.

    There are so many great songs that it's tough to choose, but my current favorite is probably "Louder Than Ever".

  • Kristancfan

    My favorite song is There and Back Again. This song LIVE is amazing. Chris and the guys really make you want to jump up and down during this song!! Josh Paul does a killer bass solo during this one...Josh Steely and Brian Craddock on dualling screaming guitars is awesome...and Robin Diaz on drums just makes you feel the pounding beat. Chris' voice sounds smooth as leather as he belts out "Lay it down my friend, Close your eyes and then I will take you There and Back Again!"
