Book Overview

For the longest time, during some rough boyhood years in Alabama and the grind of performing on the road, the odds against me were discouraging. But there was always a voice inside telling me it was going to get better. Mom and Dad certainly started out with good intentions, but early on, as their marriage went south and I went in whatever direction was necessary to avoid the fallout, I realized my life was going to be up to me. Thinking back, my...

Great - thoroughly enjoyed this

If you are a Taylor fan, you must have this. It is a great look at the events and times that has shaped Taylor into the person he is today. A great story. This is not about AI; but about Taylor. There are a few AI tidbits but this is mostly about the man Taylor Hicks. Excellent job on the book!

A Heart for Music

One thread throughout this book is Taylor's love of music, which he acquired at a young age due to heartache in his family life. The lessons in this book can be applied to anyone who dreams an 'impossible' dream. His focus, determination and will to succeed and do what he loves when few others believed in him is very moving and can be an inspiration to anyone.

Soulful heart

Taylor Hicks is by far the most underappreciated of the AI singers. Until now, his fans have known him as a talented musician and performer. Heart Full of Soul tells the story behind his success that explains both the depth of his character and the charming irreverence that sets him apart from the rest of the field. This is no fairy tale. Rather, it is a simple story of how one man believed, committed himself to his passion, manipulated pain into inspiration and is now living his dream. The music awards and movie roles that have defined the success of other AI contestants may continue to elude Hicks but, longevity will be the testament of his career. He is a man who loves the music more than the fame. People fall as fast as they rise, which is why his slow, steady climb will serve us all.


After listening to the audio book of "Heart Full of Soul" I'm even more impressed with Mr. Hicks. He's obviously earned his success, and his hard work and positive attitude will be an inspiration to anyone reading! Music is Taylor's passion. He's received recognition from some notable artists, and his future looks bright! He's a "soulman" who also happens to be a good man, and therein lies the inspiration that is Taylor Hicks!

Great Read! Funnny, Emotional and Made me Smile

Loved this book. I laughed, cried, cheered for Taylor as he told his story of how he overcame the troubled years of his childhood and how he survived and found his way through music. I tried to put the book down so I could save it for an upcoming trip, but just couldn't stop once I got started. I'm sure I'll read it again!
