S$ CD & Merchandise

I am the very happy recipient of my very own S$ CD, shirt, and sticker as of today. Played the CD twice already - if you haven't ordered one, go out now and order - click on my link! It may take several weeks as the Sugar Money family is VERY busy, but it is worth the wait! What a great 'find' these guys and their music have been! Best thing to come of the American Idol experience, in my oh so humble opinion!

Bo Bice & the A.I. "Family"

TAMPA, Florida — Bo Bice puckers his lips, cocks his head to the right and crosses his arms at his waist.
"Who am I?" he quizzes Carrie Underwood.
"Constantine," she says, disguising her answer in a cough.
Later, while capturing backstage footage with her own camera, Jessica Sierra turns the lens on Constantine and asks, "Show me your kick, but don't fall this time." It's a reference to a widely circulated interview from the night of the "American Idol" finale in which the 29-year-old New Yorker slips while showing a reporter one of his signature moves. "Family" is the term the Idols most often use when describing their unique relationships, which they formed while competing on America's top-rated show this spring. And like any family, each of the 10 singers on the tour has their own role.

American Idol runner-up Bo Bice says he's already begun work on his debut album and hopes to include members of his band from back home in Alabama for a tour. Bo tells, "We're still in the beginning stages. I've been doing some studio work and practicing with my band, Sugar Money, when I have a chance to go back home. We did a little bit of recording while I was there. Obviously I'm still plugging my cats there, and trying to get the band on the road with me."

S$ Announcement to the Bice Squad!

Greetings from SugarLand! We wanted to take a moment and thank everyone for your patience while we upgrade our forum. We have been completely reorganizing the forum so that we will be able to better handle the growing traffic. The “SugarMoney Show” will continue after everything is fixed and our goal is to have the forum back up next week. We miss it as bad as you do and want to talk to all of you again as soon as we can set a couple of things straight. When we first started this Forum, we thought that we’d be able to come here and talk to people about our music and let all of our new fans get to know us a little better. But as you are aware, the forum took on a life of its own. We cannot even begin to tell you how grateful we are that you guys take the time to show your support for our music right here in our own forum. Also, we are narrowing down our options of the “Much Love” designs and we hope to have the shirts available very soon. We are in the final stages of making more new items available for purchase. We are also in the process of setting up the Bo Bice & SugarMoney Fan Club and news letter. Once again, thank you to everyone for your continued support. Much Love, The SugarMoney Family

Can Bice survive the 'Idol' baggage?
Fans may have stopped biting their nails over the fate of Helena's Bo Bice now that "American Idol" is over for the season, but it's actually time to start in earnest.
A duet with Carlos Santana - one of the many offers he has been fielding - would help Bice to re-establish his chops, yet the boos he received during cameos at Bonnaroo must have hurt his ego. (how wrong he will prove them!)
Further into this article, as you may read...
Creative control certainly won't be handed over to Bice, but you can bet he'll be advocating for some of his original material on the CD, as well as the participation of SugarMoney bassist John Cooper and drummer Shane Sexton. (Listen to the 'Papion' song of theirs from the CD playing on this site to hear the seriously awesome instrumentals these guys can churn out - WOW!

Lack of Radio Airtime for Bo Bice

Exerpts from title article:
"Each one of the winner songs have been pretty much the same theme, the same production, the same sound," says Radio Monitor top 40 managing editor Chuck Taylor. " They were all overblown, and top 40 radio views itself as cooler than any of those songs.""Bo is a great guy, in terms of star presence," Taylor says. "But I cannot imagine where he goes from here in terms of radio."
Rock radio, so far, has turned a deaf ear to Bice.

Top 40 station WQEN-FM in Birmingham, Ala., near Bice's hometown of Helena, has played Underwood's Heaven and Bice's cover of Ides of March's Vehicle, the B-side of his Heaven single.
"I don't feel the big push on these at this point," says program director Thomas Ray. "I think the label is concentrating on getting them into the studio and cutting their own stuff, something that says, 'We're more than contestants on a TV show. We are true superstars.' "

A.I. Tour Kick Off!!!

Bo's set was perhaps the most unique of them all, as it truly felt like a headlining rock performance as he segued from one classic tune to another. After "Vehicle," he picked up an electric guitar and soloed his way through Hendrix's "Voodoo Child," showing for the first time that he can play like he can sing. And the dude was so comfortable onstage, you would've thought it was just another Sugar Money club gig.

"I'm sending this one out from my cats to all of you," Bo, dressed in leather pants and cowboy boots, said as he played the familiar opening lick of "Sweet Home Alabama."

Bo Knows Singing
American Idol Bo Bice takes over champ Carrie Underwood with his rendition of "Inside Your Heaven."
By Lisa Johnson
Steve Granitz/
Idol-er Bice jumps to No. 1
As an amazing testimony to the power of America's most popular television show, Bo Bice, the runner-up of the fourth season of American Idol, made chart history this week as his first single, the double-A sided "Inside Your Heaven"/"Vehicle" debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Singles Sales chart.Bice's triumph comes 50 years to the day after the very first rock and roll single went to No. 1 in Billboard. "(We're Gonna) Rock Around the Clock" by Bill Haley and His Comets went to No. 1 the first week of July, 1955, on the Best Sellers in Stores chart, kicking off what music historians have called "the rock era."

19 Recording/RCA Records recording artist Bice rewrites the chart history books as his "Inside Your Heaven" replaces Carrie Underwood's "Inside Your Heaven" at No. 1. It's the first time in the history of the sales chart that the same song, recorded by a different artist, succeeds itself at the top of the chart. Bice is the sixth American Idol contestant to top the sales chart, following Kelly Clarkson, Clay Aiken, Fantasia, Diana DeGarmo and Underwood.
In addition to topping Hot Singles Sales, Bice's "Inside Your Heaven" is also No. 1. Bice's debut at No. 1 was fueled by incredibly strong sales, including a No. 1 ranking at the Amazon website. With 106,000 copies sold, Bice's debut instantly becomes the second best-selling retail single of 2005. on Billboard's Pop 100.

BO BICE on Jay Leno

Watched JAY LENO last night and recorded the show. Best part of course, BO BICE and RICHIE SAMBORA! Roseanne Barr was on the program too, and she expressed how much she loved Bo on AMERICAN IDOL and had voted for him many times. Richie Sambora and Bo Bice make a great duo, great choice on the part of Desmond Child to put them together.

Santana's album scheduled for June 21 delayed...

As many of us who have been life-long fans of Santana already are aware, the anticipated album, currently to be titled, "All That I Am", previously scheduled for release on June 21st is now expected out September 6th. Rumors are being generated of a 'potential' Bo Bice and Carlos Santana duet... Well according to Billboard's article dated July 1st, reasons for the delay are not being divulged... Bo Bice is also being evasive on queries regarding his rumored recording with the legendary rocker. Could this delay and the pushing of the release date be coincidental with the rumors of the duet, or will Bo Bice be included on this new release?! Time will tell because Santana and Bo Bice are not telling...yet.

Bo & Caroline & Richie Sambora!!!

Bo Bice has made an honest woman out of his girlfriend of two years.The 29-year-old "American Idol" runner-up married 24-year-old Caroline Merrin Fisher in an intimate ceremony on June 15 in the couple's hometown of Helena, Alabama, according to Bo's spokesperson.Bice had been keeping the nuptials a secret but slipped in an interview with MTV News on Monday while joking about the difficulty of achieving longevity in music."I'm ready to be the five-minute warrior just like I am in the bedroom," Bice joked. "I gave my wife the best three seconds of her life." Earlier in the interview, the humble Bice acknowledged his relationship with Fisher. "I'm grateful to have my beautiful woman as my woman back home, and I just wanna say, 'I love you baby, I love you Caroline,' " he said.During the taping of "American Idol," rumors surfaced of a relationship between Bo and eventual winner Carrie Underwood, although Bice said the two were more like siblings."She's a beautiful girl," Bice said. "I love her so much, she's like a sister to me. I know that sounds cliché. But if I didn't have a beautiful, wonderful woman at home that I love with every [ounce] of my existence, man, I would not dare wander far from the aspect that Carrie would be someone that I would find appealing and beautiful, because I really do think she's lovely and wonderful. But I'm also just truly grateful to have her as a friend."Confirmation of Bo's wedding comes on a day when the rocker has another reason to celebrate. His first single, "Inside Your Heaven"/ "Vehicle," debuted at #1 on Billboard's Hot Singles Sales chart on Thursday (June 30).Bice will perform "Vehicle" with Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" Wednesday.Get "Idol"-ized on MTV News' "American Idol" page, where you'll find all the latest news, interviews and opinions. — Corey Moss
