That's good to hear. I know your current single is doing pretty well on the charts right now, but has there been any talk about what your next single might be?
Not yet. We're still pretty focused on "The Trouble With Girls"; we've got to let it run its course. Country radio, it takes awhile for it to really get on up there, so we're going really support this one and then we'll see about the next one.
You're currently on tour with Brad Paisley; how have the shows been going so far?
Oh, they're going great. It's really easy when you have somebody like Brad out here, who's just such a nice guy and makes you feel right at home. And The Band Perry, they've been great as well. It's been a fun tour to be on. It's a really a great fit for me, I think.
Do you get nervous at all before hitting the stage each night?
Oh, you better believe it. Yeah. It's a whole new experience every night. It's a different crowd, and I'm really in front of country music fans now. It's pretty cool.
I would assume you're performing close to the same set every night, how do you keep things fresh for the different crowds each night?
You know, you only have 25 minutes to wow 'em, so you gotta go out there and give it your all. It's just fun. As long as it's fun, it stays fresh. We can go out there and have a good time with it. Right now, it's a whole lot of fun.
Has a certain song become your favorite to perform each night?
Oh man. It kind of changes, but "You Make That Look Good" and "Write Your Number On My Hand." Those two are really fun ones to perform. The crowd really gets into them. It's cool singing those two.
I hear that Brad is prone to pulling pranks on tour, has he managed to prank you, yet?
Yeah, he got me once. He just kind of photoshopped my head on a big, muscular Speedo body at the beach. That was funny. He put it on the screen during the last song of the night, kind of got a big roar from the crowd. It was all fun and games, so we'll have to find something that we can retaliate with.
What is your favorite part of touring?
Oh, just being on the road. Meeting the fans and getting to sing songs for them. These are the people that really got me to where I'm at. It's just cool to see them and say thank you.
