With his win at age 29, Hicks became the oldest contestant to win American Idol.
He was also the first male contestant to win the competition without ever being in the bottom two or three, as well as the first Caucasian male winner.
As of June 2008, Hicks has signed a distribution deal with Vanguard/Welk records to distribute a compilation album Early Works.
He also starred in Grease in the national tour as the Teen Angel after playing the role on Broadway. In 2009 Hicks released his second album, The Distance, on his own label, Modern Whomp Records, on March 10, 2009.
Hicks joined his fellow Top 10 Idol finalists on the American Idols LIVE! The members of the former Taylor Hicks Band, formed by Hicks two years prior, regrouped as the Little Memphis Blues Orchestra and shadowed the Idols' tour route.
Despite releasing two albums prior to appearing on American Idol, he did not violate their requirements for contestants, as he had never held a recording contract.
Hicks has allowed audience members to record his concerts for personal, non-commercial use, and has authorized the Internet Archive to create a section for fans to upload and share their recordings.
He began his residency at Bally's Las Vegas in June 2012 and moved to a larger venue, Paris Las Vegas, in January 2013.
In 2016, Hicks began hosting the INSP original series State Plate and released a new single, Six Strings and Diamond Rings, in 2017. He and his family moved to the suburb of Hoover when he was eight years old.
