Any Murfreesboroans Know American Idol Finalist Colton Dixon? Do Tell

Idolize THIS!

So, my mom — who like many American moms is an avid American Idol enthusiast — recently called me (long distance) to ask if I know this dude, Colton Dixon (pictured at right), a 20-year-old Murfreesboro alt-rocker who — in his second stab at prime-time glory — is one of 13 current Idol finalists.

“I don’t think so,” I replied.

Had I known he looks like a dogtag-donning, be-faux-hawked cross between Mark McGrath, Michele Bachmann and a crystal meth habit (or maybe just a cross between Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler and a Christian youth minister), I would have been able to answer with a definitive “no” — under no circumstances do I roll with such flavor of fashion victim.

I also never lived in The Boro, so I ask those of you that have, or still do: Do any of y’all know this clown? Care to share an anecdote or two?

Then sound off and let the comments section be your soap box. Maybe he’s a wholesome mench and you’ve routinely seen him help the blind and the elderly cross busy boulevards. Or maybe he’s a hard-partyin’ loose cannon and you’ve seen him get black-out drunk and punch a cop with a pair of brass knuckles or something. Who knows? Seriously … WHO. KNOWS.

Anyway, starting tomorrow, the Scene’s longtime, resident-turned-contributing-Idol-commentator Lee Stabert returns to the Cream with her weekly Idol recaps. So surf on back to us to read about Dixon’s recent “terrible … like his hair” take on a Paramore number and other Idol chatter.

Until then, check out Colton Dixon’s emolicious EPK (below) and follow this link to join Team Colton if you like what you see. In this recent think piece, fuckin' USA Today's Brian Mansfield ponders whether or not Dixon is the "dream Idol" candidate. Who knows? Seriously ... WHO. KNOWS.
