For a touring musician, is it unsettling or invigorating to suddenly have so much quiet?
It’s definitely different, so it took some getting used to. But now that it is the new norm, it has been quite refreshing. However, there’s nothing like putting on a live show for my fans, so I miss that and being with them.
You recently released “Six Feet Apart” in response to this moment. How has this time inspired you creatively?
I think as a songwriter you just try and write about real life events going on that people can relate to and find hope in. And, as we all know, there is a very real life event going on right now. “Six Feet Apart”
allowed my buddies and I to just write and document what is going on, but turn it into a song of hope.
What do you miss and what are you most looking forward to doing when the time is right?
I kind of touch on it in “Six Feet Apart.” I miss my parents, my fans, and my band. I’m used to being with them all of the time. I’m definitely looking forward to being with them all again one day soon, as well as other normal things we’ve been without in life—going out to eat, going to a bar, watching sports, things like that.
Have you had many opportunities to spend time outside?
I have, which has been nice. I’ve been able to do a lot of hunting, as well as be on the farm.
