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?
Oh geez, that's hard! It'd sound something like this …
Ryan Adams – "Friends"
Tom Petty – "Time to Move On"
Kingston Trio – "Reverend Mr. Black"
Alanis Morissette – "You Live You Learn"
Bellwether – "Catalina"
The Replacements – "Here Comes a Regular"
New Radicals – "You Got the Music in You"
Bruce Springsteen – "Racing in the Street"
Paul Westerberg – "Good Day"
John Williamson – "Galleries of Pink Galahs"
Everly Brothers – "All I Have to Do Is Dream"

 

I dang well got me some second hand boots in Texas!

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.

 

Chatanooga, you son of a bitch.

Kimmel or Fallon?
Fallon!

Jason Isbell or Sturgill Simpson?
Isbell! Although they're both amazing in their own right.

Chocolate or vanilla?
Chocolate.
