Where were you when you first got the call, what was going through your mind?
When you told your wife and kids that “guys, dad did it”?
At the Blind Auditions you were pointing at Blake before his chair turned like, ‘cmon, you know this voice it’s been 25 years but you know me… turn. Then when he turns you’re like UH HUH!
How has working with Blake after all these years & then Dan & Shay changed your perspective on the songs you were preparing for the battle rounds and knockouts?
How did you spend the last year in quarantine and how did your time away from fans change the way you appreciate them more now? Really?
You embraced everything… How has being a songwriter allowed you to channel your love, heartache and life?
