What was the first record you ever bought with your own money?
Alanis Morissette, Jagged Little Pill (I think I was 7.)
If money were no object, where would you live and what would you do?
I'd live in Nashville. I just performed at Americana Fest and got to check out the city for the first time, and I loved it. I'd be performing, writing, and earning my crust through music. The plan is to move over there in the next year or two, once I get the next record out. Then I will execute said plan.
If your life were a movie, which songs would be on the soundtrack?

What brand of jeans do you wear?
Cheap ones that I bought in New Zealand — I don't even know the brand. I'm due for a new pair.
What's your go-to karaoke tune?
Currently, it's any song written by Tom Petty. I've been working my way back through his catalogue. Too good!
What's your favorite season?
Autumn. It's always hot where I'm from, so I'm a lover of cooler weather.
Kimmel or Fallon?
Jason Isbell or Sturgill Simpson?
Isbell! Although they're both amazing in their own right.
Chocolate or vanilla?
