Hey! So excited to be chatting with you! You just released your new single & it’s awesome! I love it!!
What do you hope your supporters will think of the new song?
Growing up on an Orchard out West, I would always think about how I cannot wait to leave my small town and never look back. However, once I left for the “real world,” I started to appreciate where I came from and it made me want to head back home. I feel like “Farther From Home” can relate to people who are leaving for college or moving to a bigger city. Sometimes you don’t realize how much something or somewhere means to you until you don’t have it anymore.
Can you tell us the backstory of this song? Is it from a real experience?
The song was originally written in 2003 by my manager Scott Randall Rhodes, Jill King and Harry Harless. One day while Scott and I were swapping songs with each other, he played it for me and it immediately hit home with me. From that very second, I knew I had to record the song. Together, we hammered out the basic vibe and mood we wanted to set. Later my producer, Buddy Hyatt (Music City Trax), added a Nashville chime to it, which we loved.
Do you have any more new music coming out soon?!! If so, Can you spill any details on what your supporters can look forward to next year?!?
Yes! Since I wasn’t able to tour much last year, I took the time to write and record a lot of new music.
Do you have a creative say in your music? Did you help write all your songs?
Absolutely! On most recordings I’ve either written or co-written.
Will there be a music video for your new single? If so, can you tell us about the concept of the video 🙂
We would love to film a video, but haven’t locked down the concept just yet.
Are you planning any shows to promote your new music?
Yes, we are planning on really hitting those areas where we got airplay from prior single (“He Looks Good On Her”)
What’s something your fans don’t know about you?
Not many people know this, but I love to cook. Actually cook and create, not just follow a recipe.
Is there anyone in the music business you are dying to meet?
There are a ton of writers I’d love to meet and pick their brain to see what makes them tick.
What would you say is your biggest dream/goal right now?
I would love to have a full team to take care of the business side of my career to allow me to focus strictly on what I do best: creating new music.
Any last things you want to tell your supporters?
I would like to thank them for their support. Last year was tough on all of us and it means the world to me to have listeners stream my music.
Thank you so much for taking the time to do this interview!
Thanks so much for having me!
