If you had to write a mission statement for your career, what would it be?
To make country music I love and through that music connect with people around the world.
What’s your favorite memory from being on stage?
Man, I’ve got a lot of great memories from stage, but my favorite has to be getting to sing the gospel medley with Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard in New Braunfels, Texas.
If you could spend 10 minutes with John Lennon, Dolly Parton, Hank Williams, Joni Mitchell, Sister Rosetta, or Merle Haggard how would it go?
If I could spend 10 minutes with Dolly Parton, I’d probably ask for insight on how she’s able to keep long fingernails and still play guitar. I’m always breaking mine haha. And then maybe we could meditate. I think Dolly would be a great meditation leader.
Which elements of nature do you spend the most time with and how do those impact your work?
I love nature and animals. I’m actually really introverted which is kind of a weird pairing with being an artist. Being out in nature and spending time with animals really helps me fill the well back up and be centered.
Since food and music go so well together, what would be your dream pairing of a meal and a musician?
It already happened – Reba and KFC.
