The Many Faces of Colton Dixon

Faces of Colton Dixon

American Idol finalist Colton Dixon will be in concert in Grand Junction at the Avalon Theater on August 8.  In June, we told you how he and his sister Schyler entered the American Idol contest in 2011, and he returned in 2012 just to support his sister until the judges urged him to enter himself.  He went on to place 7th.

Who is Colton Dixon? 

  • He is a 23 year old Christian pop musician who grew up in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
  • His first name is actually Michael.
  • His father runs a face painting/air brush company.
  • He was an extra in “Hanna Montana: The Movie” in 2008.
  • He sang in the choir during high school.
  • He and his sister have a Christian rock band called “Messenger.”
  • His single “More Of You” was the most-played song of 2014 on certain Christian radio formats.

Dixon’s hair style has changed over the years, as the photos document.  He says he grew a “faux mohawk” while attending Middle Tennessee Christian School, which sometimes got him in trouble with the school dress code.

Since his American Idol success, he admits the fame has challenged his Christian faith:  “I don’t think any human being was designed to receive that much credit,” Dixon says. Comparing the challenges of pride, envy and greed to the fall of Lucifer, he says “It’s easy to go down that path. You just have to remain humble and do that by staying in the Word and talking to God on a daily basis.”
