I forgot how hot that guy is!! Sweet song, nice voice. Don't know if this video will burn up the charts, but it does create a nice mood I guess.

Wonderful video full of depth and suggestive meaning. Hicks voice delivers the message with passion and feeling. Can hardly wait for the CD.

Canada -- "once he tours" -- where have you been!! That's ALL Taylor has been doing for three years. You obviously haven't been following his career. And "make a CD of the AI songs" You've GOT to be kidding!!

Perfect for the blues man - what an amazing video. Taylor, Ray and Keb must be VERY proud of you. Excellent - can't wait for the CD to come out in March.

I knew this video would be 'smoldering'! Great Job! The setting~Taylor's vocals~the mood & sax made a perfect blend! This makes the waiting for The Distance release a bit easier♥

Like the video. Kinda dark and moody. It had lots of quick cuts and unusual visuals. Interesting to watch more than once.

I'm always VERY proud to be a Taylor Hicks fan. Have been since the start. He is a stand up guy with an amazing voice. Loved the video and his performance. Way to go Taylor.

Love Right is Right and look forward to hearing the rest of the album - personally I think he won because he is an entertainer...bottom line is that AI didn't really give him a chance on the album that they produced for him - he shines in Right is Right

This is the kind of music that Taylor has been aching to get back to -- check out his Early Works album -- great music from his two pre-Idol albums. Most of the songs & musical arrangements were his own. Can't wait for The Distance & abolutely love this song & video -- congrats Taylor!!!

Winning AI was because of the songs he sang and how well he performed. Since then he has sang entirely different music and has not risen to stardom. Return to the same type of music, or make an album of the AI songs, only the full songs and it will skyrocket!!Once he becomes way up on the charts, and tours etc. then he can choose other types of music, and still be popular. I'd like to see him as an entertainer in Vegas, singing songs such as "YOU SEND Me" and "YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL" and he would pack the house!!

Song and video seem perfect fit for Hicks. B-52 and sax are killer. Good show.
