Chris Sligh Signs Record Contract

at . Comments

We interrupt our season seven coverage of American Idol contestants, such as Robbie Carrico, to update fans about a singer from last year:

Chris Sligh, the curly haired crooner who was a fan favorite on season six, has signed a record deal with Atlanta-based independent label Brash Music. He has also announced plans to release his first album, titled Running Back to You, on May 6.

Sligh's first single, ''Empty Me,'' will hit the airwaves later this week.
