Behind the Music With Colton and Annie Dixon – 137

Have you ever heard it said, “Life imitates art?” American Idol’s Colton Dixon might tell you, “Life creates art.” He and his wife, Annie, join Darlene and Julie for a casual chat about how much of his new music was inspired by life, their experiences as a couple, and the challenges they have faced. You will hear how they met, how they rely on each other during changes in his career, and the most terrifying—being pregnant with twins during a pandemic.

The couple shares the personal stories that inspired the music on his new self-titled EP Colton Dixon—including chart-topper, Miracles and why his first love song, Can’t Quit You, finally made it on one of his albums. Annie gives us a glimpse from her perspective behind the scenes of the challenging road as a musician’s wife, applying both grit and grace. Her words are timely in this uncertain season. You’ll fall in love with this couple just like we did, so listen now and be sure to get the music wherever you find your tunes!
