Colton Dixon attends the 2nd Annual KLOVE Fan Awards at the Grand Ole Opry House on June 1, 2014 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Male Artist of the Year nominee Colton Dixon talked about how well his fans know him and his joy of being used by God on the Red Carpet at the 2014 K-LOVE Fan Awards.

Kim Jones - I have been watching you since that first audtion on American Idol and you just keep getting better and better.

Colton Dixon - Well thank you!

Kim Jones - Tell me all about the life of Colton Dixon in this moment.

Colton Dixon - Oh my goodness! The life of Colton Dixon... I think the people who watched me on American Idol know more about me than I do. I'm really a nerd and a dork at heart. I love Batman. I love anything super hero. I love the beach. I love virgin pina coladas. I love getting caught in the rain.

Kim Jones - You're too young to know that song!

Colton Dixon - (laughs) Recently, I have been working on a new record and I'm so excited about it. It comes out in August and we're playing the new single, called "More of You," tonight. Also tonight, I somehow got nominated for Male Artist of the Year. I'm still scratching my head over that one.

Kim Jones - You shouldn't be. You are one of those people who people from all walks of life can relate to. You're living the dream that people - both Christian and non-Christian - want. You are bringing folks in that might not listen to a "Christian" song because they saw you on American Idol. Don't forget that.

Colton Dixon - Well, I'm just happy that God is using me.
