For his third studio album , Dixon said he wanted to put where he currently is in life to his music.
The following is an edited transcript of The Christian Post's interview with Dixon in which he discusses where this generation should look to find their identity and about marriage and dealing with grief. Dixon: The story behind Identity is, I just realized that I was putting my identity in things that don't matter.
I think our generation especially, but our nation as well, we look at what Hollywood throws at us, and I just think some of us are confused.
"I remember being on 'American Idol' and feeling so disconnected and so alone," he told Fox News last year.
"I hadn't talked to my family or my friends in what seemed like weeks because you're so busy doing other things and just kind of had to had that reassuring moment, like okay, I know God's still in this.
[I] just needed to know I was doing the right thing, and after being encouraged and reassured of that, I was good to go." At the time, the singer said he hoped his struggle on "Idol" would inspire fans going through similar difficulties.
