Hicks got his start as a professional musician in his late teens and performed around the Southeastern United States for well over the span of a decade, during which he also released two independent albums. Upon winning Idol, he was signed to Arista Records, under which his self-titled major label debut was released on December 12, 2006. His
energetic stage performances and influences derived from classic rock, blues, and R&B music had earned him a following of devout fans, who have been dubbed the "Soul Patrol."

 

His role of Teen Angel in Grease is the role originated by Frankie Avalon. He began his stint June 6 and will continue playing the role throughout the summer.  The New York Post reported that Hicks’s appearances have added a hefty $150,000 in extra ticket sales per week for the show.
