Deluxe Edition includes bonus tracks. BEHIND THE LIGHT is Phillips' follow-up to his hugely successful debut album which spawned the hit single ''Home,'' one of the biggest tracks of 2012, selling more than 4 million copies. That debut album, THE WORLD FROM THE SIDE OF THE MOON, sold well over a million copies and debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart and #1 on the Billboard Rock Album chart. Successful tours both as a headliner and with such artists as Matchbox 20 and John Mayer followed. Raised in Leesburg, Georgia, Phillips took up guitar at 14, thanks largely to his older sister's then-boyfriend (and now husband), Benjamin Neil. Several years later, Phillips formed an acoustic band and added singing to his repertoire. After graduating high school, Phillips began studying industrial systems technology at Albany Technical College in Georgia and continued playing music. With encouragement from his family and friends, Phillips took a break from working in his family's pawn shop and auditioned for AMERICAN IDOL in summer 2011 - and soon found himself tearing through full-throated performances of songs by artists like Creedence Clearwater Revival, Otis Redding, and Wilson Pickett on the Idol stage..
