THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING COLTON DIXON

Colton Dixon is a singer/songwriter who placed seventh on Season 11 of “American Idol.” He began his singing career as a teenager, when he also was a baseball player. Ultimately, Dixon chose music and is now one of the most successful artists in Christian music.

He is currently signed with Atlantic Records, and has released three albums, including his debut “A Messenger” in 2013 and “Identity” in 2017. In 2020, Dixon and his wife welcomed twins into the world, and in 2021 he released his latest single, “Made to Fly.”

Today on the podcast, we talk to Dixon about his experience on “American Idol,” returning to performing in front of audiences, choosing to write music that glorifies God, and his decision to walk away from baseball to pursue music.
