There have been American Idol winners who have done way worse than Lee DeWyze who have somehow managed to hang on to their record contracts. I mean the guy sold 168,000 albums which is a bunch these days in a world of free downloads, but it was not good enough as he was dropped by RCA. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter it sounded like RCA took a couple of digs at Lee and maybe that he brought this on himself. Asked about the inconsistencies about Idol winners, the RCA rep said, "Those where the A&R wasn't the best, or they weren't willing to be A&R’d, they didn't last.” I wonder if Lee was being difficult. I know that Kelly Clarkson was on the one album that went nowhere but she seems to be back on board the do whatever they say train. Hopefully Lee will find a new home.
