Scotty McCreery tells People magazine that he’s enjoying married life. “I love the fact that we didn’t live together before. It’s not like we just got married and then went back to our home. I’ve enjoyed the process of moving her stuff and getting my stuff and making a house a home, and it’s very homey right now, which to me is awesome.”
Dustin Lynch tells People magazine that he’s slowly, but surely sharing his life on social media. “I was a little scared to do it at first. It’s been so eye-opening and great. The connection with my fans has never been stronger and people are now pulling for us off-stage as much as they are on. Selfishly, it’s a bit of therapy for me to talk about things and put things out there in the universe.”
Billy Currington recently posted a video of himself climbing a coconut tree in Hawaii. He grabbed a coconut before taking it to the ground, chopping its top off, and drinking its juice.
Kane Brown tells Songwriters Universe that his mother got him interested in country music. “My mom got me into the country because that’s what we listened to growing up. She used to listen to a lot of Shania Twain. The first song I ever knew was ‘I Like It, I Love It’ by Tim McGraw. Then, of course, my granddaddy used to listen to Randy Travis and Keith Whitley and all of them. Once I got to middle school, I branched off into new music. And when I got to high school, I got back into country music. My R&B influence, my hip-hop influence, came with me on how I dressed. It was kind of combining genres with looks and then songs and my voice. Now, music is changing so much, it kind of fits. It was like perfect timing.”
Luke Combs tells The Tennessean that he was singing Vince Gill songs as soon as he could talk. “I was so little, I thought his name was Vince Skittles!”
Maren Morris tells Rolling Stone magazine that she loves listening to the radio. “I love listening to the radio because there’s something about that discovery, that platform still being the main medium … I like to listen to what people are listening to and figure out why is this song so catchy. What is it about it? I really break it down to a science and try to figure out what makes a song particularly memorable. And it’s usually repetition and simplicity. At least with catchy pop songs that take on a life of their own and become huge smashes.”
