Colton Dixon Sends Message to Nation: Your Identity Is in God (Interview)
The season 11 "American Idol" alum is currently touring arenas across the country for the Winter Jam tour, as his new single "All That Matters" is quickly climbing radio charts.
For his third studio album Identity, Dixon said he wanted to put where he currently is in life to his music. The 25-year-old newlywed married his longtime girlfriend Annie Coggeshall in January 2016 and his new journey can certainly be heard throughout the 17 tracks of the Sparrow Records recording.
The following is an edited transcript of The Christian Post's interview with Dixon in which he discusses where this generation should look to find their identity and about marriage and dealing with grief.
The Christian Post: What made you choose the album title Identity?
Dixon: The story behind Identity is, I just realized that I was putting my identity in things that don't matter. I think our generation especially, but our nation as well, we look at what Hollywood throws at us, and I just think some of us are confused. I just kind of wanted to set the story straight and point people to where they should be putting their identity.
