Shay Mooney of Dan + Shay tells People Magazine that his life has changed since the birth of his child. “It has been a huge change and the best change. You love each other a ton and then you have a kid and you never realize how much you could love something. It strengthens your love for each other, but it also just opens up this entire other deeper world of love that you never knew you could have.”
Chris Lane tells Glamour magazine that the biggest decision he ever made was to pursue music instead of baseball. “I had just started to learn how to play the guitar, all because I had gone to a few Keith Urban concerts. I was inspired by that not even to sing, but just play the guitar. It’s crazy how things turned out because never did I think I’d be singing in front of people, let alone in baseball stadiums of all things. Baseball was all I did my whole life and to be hindered through those surgeries…I was worried things wouldn’t work out after college, but looking back, I’m really happy all that stuff happened because I’m doing something that I really love now.”
Sam Hunt tells Entertainment Tonight that he has ‘baby fever’ and wants kids with his wife Hannah Lee. “My brother had a baby about a year ago. I’ve been… watching him grow up through pictures mostly. That has escalated my baby fever a little bit. I’ve always wanted to have lots of kids, so it’s not something new… I had two brothers, three [kids] has always been a number that works with me.”
Keith Urban tells People Magazine that he’s the luckiest man alive to be married to Nicole Kidman. “She’s my best friend. I’ve never had anybody on the planet that knows me as well as she does. I would love to have been worthy of somebody like Nic, but I was a long way from it when we met. Somehow we just found there was love there, real love. I literally just feel like the luckiest guy on the planet.”
Morgan Evans tells WWD that he grew up on rock music. “The stuff I grew up on was a mixture of rock ‘n’ roll and my parents’ records, which were Garth Brooks, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Glen Campbell. But also things like Led Zeppelin, Credence Clearwater Revival, stuff like that. It was a mix. I went through a bunch of phases as you do in your teens, Keith Urban was a huge one that probably makes a lot of sense, and I love the Foo Fighters. I love Dave Grohl, the way he can write serious songs and then look like he’s having the best time on stage. I’m into Ed Sheeran as well and I love him in the same way: he has these really emotive songs but he’s just a fun character. That’s the combination I enjoy — I love writing meaningful songs but I also like having a good time on the stage.”
