DAUGHTRY: ALL ABOUT TEAMWORK

157

When Daughtry recorded its self-titled debut, there was no band; it was merely frontman Chris Daughtry and a team of studio musicians.  After assembling a band and spending a couple of years on the road, however, Chris Daughtry felt confident about including them in the creative process for the follow-up, “Leave This Town.”  Not only does the band perform on the album, they also helped write the new material.

ERIC MCCORMACK ‘GRACES’ TONIGHT’S ‘SVU’ WITH HIS PRESENCE

NBC viewers will see a familiar face when they watch tonight’s episode of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”: Eric McCormack, who starred in the network’s long-running comedy “Will & Grace.”  He’ll be playing a much different role, though: A man whose online dating relationship leads him to become a murder suspect.  And while Eric’s been absent from NBC’s airwaves since “Will’s” farewell in 2006, he told us it was always just a matter of time before he’d be seen on “SVU.”

While “Will & Grace” lasted for eight seasons, “SVU” is now in its 11th year, and McCormack told us there’s a similar thread that runs between the shows and their longevity — the relationships between the lead actors.
