From Tuesday's show at The Hotel Cafe, he did a duet with Jillette on Ryan Adams' "Oh My Sweet Carolina"
Thursday night at his Agoura Hills show, he covered Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" (love this!)
He's off the drugs for his injury, but he said that wrist still hurts all the time. He is doing things with his right hand now, though, so hopefully that's a god sign. He said that he does rehab every day.
He tweeted this fun picture yesterday. It's got more than 4000 likes on his FB page
Just the right size. http://instagr.am/p/Vc62fuSyxo/

I read somewhere that Kris was performing with Danny Gokey.
I think that was a cruise for charity. Honestly, I wish Kris spent as much time on his career as he does on his charity work. Selfish on my part I know.

A new song demo has leaked: "We Are"
Writers:ALLEN KRIS, BUSBEE MICHAEL JAMES RYAN, GREEN JON
I really like this song. Kris sounds great and the production is quite good. I wonder if this song didn't make TYC or is it something more new.

I really like the new song. Kris is a talented song writer.

We finally know what the song title is for the song Kris, Jon & Jason wrote in the Dallas writing session last October.

Kris co-write on Tony Lucca's 222 Records (Adam Levine's label) debut EP called "Never In A Million"
From what I gather from the fandom Kris wrote with Sam Farrar in the July 2011 for TYC. This appears to be a song they wrote, Tony picked up and modified for his cd, thus the co-write for him.

Kris added more hints about the song in the movie. The movie is about a small town and it is a new song that was written specifically for the movie.
ETA: It is for an independent film.

Life beyond Idol. I am glad Kris is getting this opportunity.
Posted Sep 30, 2013 @ 9:05 AM
Kris revealed in a twitter party this weekend that the song he wrote for the indie movie is called "Love in a Small Town" and he wrote it with actress and Oscar/Golden Globe winner Mary Steenburgen. She is a fellow Arkansan. He also stated he is working hard to get new music sometime at the beginning of next year. As far as his wrist, he is getting some more strength quickly and movement is coming slowly.

12/12 Kris performed a online Stageit concert for his fans from Nashville. He sang cuts from his "Waiting For Christmas" EP he released last year and other songs. Guests included Cale Mills, Andrew St. Marie and the country duo Two Story Road. You can see the full set here: http://www.youtube.c...li4oZRbBd8CHCep
During the concert Kris performed a new original untitled Christmas song he wrote during his last Nashville writing sessions. Prior to performing the song Kris answered questions where he talked about recording his upcoming 3rd album.
Stageit5 Q&A - Kris Allen
Q&A Notes; Wrist is doing OK. Will start recording the new album in January and hopes to get it out shortly after. A note on his Stageit page for the concerts stated the album would be out early 2014. He can't wait to tell us "who it will be with".
Could he be signed????

Kris kicked off the #IdolBlitz Idol alum fan chats which are to promote the upcoming season of Idol. During the chat he revealed that Charlie Peacock, who produced The Civil Wars' two albums, will be producing his third album.
This seems like a great fit for Kris. I hope that the focus will be on Kris' vocals, and will not feature the overproduction that characterized some of KATA and TYC.
Posted Jan 9, 2014 @ 5:13 AM
I didn't find either album overproduced, honestly. His vocals were very easy to hear at all times, very clear and soulful. No focus lost on them, I felt they were complemented well. That's one thing I've always loved about his voice, actually. He flows well with the music and the emotion is really evident, and straightforward. No frills.

We have a sneak peak of the song "Love In A Small Town" that Kris co-wrote with Mary Steenburgen for the indie movie "Valley Inn" (Release date 5/9/2014). http://d2oadd98wnjs7....mp3?1382625836
Here is a post from the Writer/Director/Producer on how the collaboration came about.
Kris also mentioned in his chat that he wrote more songs for the movie. Here is a full recap of the chat: http://littlepawns.c...z-facebook-chat.

Brian Mansfield from USAToday spent Friday afternoon in studio with Kris & Charlie Peacock as they tracked songs for the album. He did send out a pic that revealed the title of one of the new songs they were tracking, "In Time". Brian also mentions that it seems Charlie will be producing Kris' entire album. Hopefully Brian will publish a write-up.

Brian did publish a write-up which had some very interesting information about the creative process.
I love this quote:
"My mission is to have his voice way up front," Peacock says. "We already have an established artist. We know people love his voice. So we don't want to make it compete with anything."
Posted Feb 4, 2014 @ 7:22 AM
You're going into this album without a record deal. What's the plan going forward?
I'm making this record on my own. Once we get done with making the music, we may look at some other options. For now, though, I wanted to do this on my own. It seemed like an inspirational thing to do.
