About Bo Bice

Harold Elwin 'Bo' Bice, Jr. (born November 1, 1975) is an American singer and musician who placed second to Carrie Underwood in the fourth season of American Idol. He has recorded three studio albums, including one on RCA Records. In 2005, Bice charted at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 with a rendition of 'Inside Your Heaven.' Bice was born in Huntsville, Alabama to Nancy and Harold Elwin Bice. Music is in his family; his mother was a gospel singer (as were his grandmother, great-grandmother, and aunts). His father and his third cousin, Tanner Gell, play guitar. His other third cousin, Tristen Gell sings. Bice was nicknamed 'Bogart' as a newborn by his grandmother ('Granny Madge') because she thought he had 'Humphrey Bogart eyes'. His family continued to call him Bogart, but when Bice was in kindergarten he shortened it to 'Bo' because he didn't think Bogart was cool. Bice's parents divorced when he was very young, and his mother remarried years later.
