Q: If there was a movie made about your life, who would play you?
A: Jim Carrey
Q: What’s your guilty pleasure?
A: Cheeseburgers and beer.
Q: If we snuck onto your bus and opened your fridge what would we find?
A: Oh, right now you would find tuna salad, cheese, pasta, fruit, and LaCroix. So much LaCroix.
Q: Biggest pet peeve?
A: Oh my gosh, when it’s like later at night, and the light changes right as you’re coming up to it, to red. And then you know, the crossing turns green and nobody’s there. Do you know what I'm talking about?
Q: Your dream duet partner?
A: Hmmm. Celine Dion. No, I’m just kidding. Tim Mcgraw, Usher, Post Malone, Carrie Underwood. I got a whole list.
Q: A song you wish you’d written?
A: Ooh. Cruise by Florida Georgia Line. Or Friends In Low Places. Like, can you imagine writing a song that’s played in every bar, every single night? That's just next level.
Q: One thing you’d hate to admit?
A: I might be a little OCD, but I think it might just be hyper-focused. I don’t know. I’m all jacked up. That’s why all the energy in my body is just stuck on overdrive.
Q: Last time you laughed so hard you cried?
A: Probably playing Quiplash. Have y’all played Quiplash? It’s a game on Apple TV. So you basically just come up with funny answers. It’ll ask a question or say a prompt, and you come up with a funny answer. So it’s like, the name of, Celine Dion’s pet monkey. You come up with like, the goofiest, probably provocative, whatever. Then you vote on the best answer.
Q: The last movie that made you cry?
A: The Adam Project. It gets you right there. I should be a spokesperson for Ryan Reynolds and the Adam Project with how many people I've told to watch it, I love it.
Q: One thing few people know about you?
A: Um, that I'm a preacher’s kid. Probably not many people know that.
Q: Growing up, did you ever want to be anything else besides a country artist?
A: Uh, I feel like freshman year of high school, I saw that Martin Lawrence movie Blue Streak where they duct tape those huge diamonds inside of a building, and then it’s under construction. I love that movie. I used to jam to the soundtrack, and was like, I'm going into criminal justice baby. But I wouldn't make a good interrogator.
