Article by The Grand Rapids Press – Kris Allen enjoys a family reunion with about 45 relatives at his concert at The Intersection in Grand Rapids

Interview by the Cedar Rapids Gazette (posted by the California Chronicle): ‘Idol’d o l talktalk.  Here’s a snippet of it:

I’m still learning, and relying on other people’s opinions, as well.’ Not all of the past winners have found such commercial success right away.

‘My first single has been such a blessing,’ he says.

Because it’s done so well, it’s going to do wonders for the rest of my career. Now I just gotta keep bringing out the good songs. Out of 12 songs on my new CD, nine of them I cowrote or wrote.’ His career trajectory has changed the way he writes.

‘It used to be that I was going to write whenever the moment comes. Now that it’s my job and I have to make money, I set aside a little time,’ he says. ‘When you force yourself to sit down and write, it’s good.’ His inspirations are ‘different for every song,’ he says. ‘The people around me, my friends, my wife, people you just meet and my everyday experiences. I try to write the stuff that I’m going through.’
