Graham Colton - "Best Days" single on American Idol, Oprah + watch video

Graham Colton

Graham Colton's smash single "Best Days" has been all over the airwaves in the US - a hit at Hot AC radio and widely licensed for television, including episodes of American Idol and Oprah's The Big Give in the last month alone.

Recently Colton received massive exposure, with three national television appearances in the space of one week. The singer-songwriter, named an iTunes "Editor's Choice" for Top New Pop Artist, performed on Late Show with David Letterman (March 13th), Today (March 14th) and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (March 19th). He made his network television debut last month on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

The anthemic "Best Days" was most recently featured in the premiere of The Big Give, Oprah Winfrey's new primetime series airing on the ABC Television Network, and on Fox's American Idol, which used it as the exit song in four episodes leading up to the Top 12.

"Best Days," the lead single from Graham Colton's solo debut album, 'Here Right Now', is included on the American Idol page on iTunes and Colton will be the subject of a "spotlight" feature on the American Idol website.

A poignant reflection on the importance of making the most of the time we're given, "Best Days" has also been used in promotional campaigns for HBO and for ABC's October Road, in the closing montage of CBS' Thanksgiving Day football and was one of several Graham Colton originals used in a four-episode block of MTV's Newport Harbor as part of the show's "Featured Artist" program. The song has been downloaded nearly 700,000 times since selected as iTunes' "Single of the Week."

Check out the video for "Best Days", lensed by Nigel Dick (Oasis, Nickelback, Travis).

'Here Right Now', produced by John Fields (Switchfoot, Rooney, Semisonic), debuted at #2 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart, at #4 on iTunes' Top Pop Album Chart and at #11 on iTunes' Top Album chart.

    Graham rocks! It's so refreshing to see a musician of such high caliber these days. I love that song he played! Graham's style and voice remind me of Eric Solomon, another quality musician- you should totally check him out. He's my favourite:
