Universal Records signs 2009 American Idol winner Kris Allen

Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) today announced the signing of an exclusive world-wide publishing agreement with American Idol winner Kris Allen. The publishing deal encompasses Kris Allen’s self-titled album as well as future works during the term of the agreement.

Kris Allen “Live Like We’re Dying” hot or not?

I heard this song late one night a few weeks ago, and I was reminded that Kris Allen actually was the one who won American Idol this past year. He’s definitely been overshadowed by Adam Lambert, not to mention the timing of his album release not only fell near Lambert’s but also Carrie Underwood, Norah Jones, and Michael Jackson.
