If you could go back (or forward) to live in any decade, when would you choose?

I would love to live my 20s from 1965-1975. That era of music has shaped my core as a musician. Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Otis Redding, the Allman Brothers, Stevie Wonder, the Beatles … the list goes on and on. It was just a classic era of music for me. The times were rough. The civil rights era was a trying time for our country, but out of that came some really inspired music.

Who would be your dream co-writer?

Lori McKenna

If a song started playing every time you entered the room, what would you want it to be?

Isaac Hayes — “Walk on By”

 

I’m dead. #redrocks

What is the one thing you can’t survive without on tour?

Sadly, as a millennial, I guess I’d have to say my phone. I usually try and work from the road, if I didn’t have that, I’d be pretty screwed.

What are you most afraid of?

I always have a nightmare where all my teeth fall out. That’s pretty terrifying.

Who is your celebrity crush?

I think it’s between Janelle Monae or Monica Martin, from the band PHOX.

Pickles or olives?

Pickles for sure.

Plane, train, or automobile?

Automobile — I like to be in control. Unless it’s one of those trains that you can sit down and eat dinner on … that’d be cool.

Which is worse — rainy days or Mondays?

I guess rainy days. My schedule doesn’t abide by the normal off-on-the-weekends rule, so Mondays are cool with me.
