Montgomery, AL – A large crowd gathered at the amphitheater in downtown Montgomery Friday night to listen to the mellow sounds of pop singer/songwriter and guitarist Colbie Caillat.
At almost twenty-five years old, the Newbury Park, California native entertained her audience for about an hour with her smooth, catchy rhythms including “Lucky,” a duet she recorded in 2008 with Jason Mraz, which won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration.
Caillat also sang “Realize,” “The Little Things,” and returned after thunderous applause for “Bubbly,” the encore and hit single which peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #2 on the Pop 100.
The aforementioned tunes were from her 2007 debut album entitled “Coco,” a nickname given to her by family members, and it debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200, selling 51,000 copies in the first week.
Caillat released her second album, “Breakthrough,” in August of 2009, but the first single, “Fallin’ For You,” came out in June and reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100, staying for eight weeks inside the Top 40 on the Billboard chart.
Ken Caillat, the performer’s father, is a record producer best known for co-producing Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours” (1977) and “Tusk” (1979) albums. He is the president of 5.1 Entertainment Group Digital Production Services which has worked on albums for Frank Sinatra, the Beach Boys, Alice Cooper, and Billy Idol.
