1. Hi Brandon, what is the story behind your new song “Ends of the Earth?”
I started working with producer Ross Copperman and this was a song he sent me to listen to in a Dropbox –  It immediately stopped me in my tracks and I had to record it. I interpreted it as doing anything for the one you love even if it means going to the ends of the earth. I soon figured out that they wrote about a couple who they were friends with that was adopting a baby from Uganda. That just told me the power of music and how it can be interpreted.
 
2. What has been your favorite venue to play at so far in your music career? 
There have been some incredible venue, but one that sticks out is “the grizzly Rose” in Denver, Co.
 
3. When you are not working or playing music, what do you like to do in your free time? 
If I have free time, I love working on old cars – I have a 78 f100 pickup that I’m constantly doing something to.
I love sports. And I love hanging with my wife and best friends.
 
4. Have you learned anything from any musicians or groups that you have opened up for?
Absolutely. I always watch and learn as much I can from them.
Kip Moore taught me to soak in every moment and enjoy the journey.
 
5. If you could sing a duet with a famous singer or group who would it be and why?
Bryan Adams. The dude is my hero and sings like a madman!
 
6. How did you get into country music and how did you know you wanted a career in it?
I had always listened to country, rock, pop, and every genre growing up. I had a rock band after high school that made waves across the country, but in that genre it was difficult to have a loyal fan base.
In country, they would literally follow you to the “ends of the earth” haha! The support is unbelievable. 
I also feel the storytelling and putting myself in all my songs is what I wanna do.
 
7. Is there anything new coming up with your music for the rest of 2017?
Yes – we are in the studio recording new music and should have another new release before the end of the year.
8. What is one of your favorite quotes?
I always loved Gandi’s “you cannot shake hands with a clenched fist”
