(CSC) 1. The new album, “All Over The Road” is coming out 9/18, tell us about it and what can fans expect!?!
Oh yeah, you know, we have the new record it's called, "All Over The Road" and it will be out September 18th. You know, as far as what the fans can expect, for me as a new artist, I think this album does show growth. With that being said, it doesn't stray away from what people are familiar with hearing me doing. It’s still that comfort thing and it's got that tradition thing to it and that's what I love.
(CSC) 2. What was the initial mindset like for you when deciding which songs to record and what songwriters to collaborate with for the album?
For me, we had a lot of success with the first record; very blessed, very fortunate to have that. For me, I think it was about going in and you know, like they always say, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it,” and going back in and kind of using that same format.
(CSC) 3. Having achieved a great deal of success already, back-to-back #1 hits and ACA (American Country Awards), what do you hope to achieve next to build upon your accomplishments?
I hope we just get out there and build upon our fan base, you know, I think that's the most important. That what keeps you going; is your fans out there. I think the most important thing is getting the music out to as many people as possible and just trying to build that.
(CSC) 4. Looking back on the early days of your career, who or what do you credit as the most influential during that period in your life?
My parents and my grandparents and you know I had a lot of great people that surrounded me and helped me to get my foot in the door. As far as artists go; that still influence me and influenced me then, I always say I love Merle Haggard, Keith Whitley and George Jones and that traditional type thing. I just listened to Vern Gosdin right on the bus a few minutes ago, it never gets old.
(CSC) 5. Having afforded the opportunity to tour with acts like Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton, how has that experience given you a greater sense of confidence on the stage?
Well, you know, I wouldn't say stage fright so much, but you get nervous up there and of course I still get nervous a little bit sometimes. As you do it more and more and more you get more confidence and of course being out there performing with Blake and Brad you get out there in front of those audiences and you just build that confidence up. I think you learn a lot from watching those guys, because they went through the same thing as young artists as well.
