As the Season 14 American Idol winner, Nick Fradiani is not only be headlining the Idol tour, but he is watching his first solo single, “Beautiful Life,” [written by Dashboard Confessional’s Chris Carrabba] climb up the Billboard charts. In addition to traversing the US promoting his single, Nick has already begun the creative process for his album, his first for Big Machine Records. He has been writing on his own, and will be doing some co-writing sessions up until he leaves to go on tour. Nick’s goal is to continue to write while on the road, and he is hoping to fit some recording sessions in between dates as well. After the tour wraps, Nick will solely focus on being in the Studio, readying his album for release.

I’ve had a great time being the City’s official journalist/blogger for the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Vancouver and have given away tickets to every match at BC Place to those who tweeted selfies @Miss604 from #VanFanZone. I’ll have the winner of the tickets to the final posted later today.
