Charly Reynolds’ Q&A!!!

  1. Hi Charly, Can you tell me a little bit about yourself before you
    became a country musician?
    Hi Danaille! Thanks for having me. When I was younger, I always sang
    and knew that I wanted to be a singer, but I didn’t always want to be
    a country singer. I used to sing a lot of Broadway music from Wicked,
    Bye Bye Birdie and Funny Girl. That is what I loved to sing. Then, it
    started transitioning into Taylor Swift with “You Belong with Me,”
    and “Our Song,” which definitely put the country idea in my head! It
    was during the Carrie Underwood Blown Away tour back in 2012,
    however, that it really hit me. It was then that I realized this was
    exactly what I wanted to do.
  2. What is the background story behind your latest single “We
    Need to Talk?”
    When I sat down in a writing session with my friends, Kelly Seidel,
    Nicole Croteau, and Dave Mohr, we were discussing ideas and Kelly
    came up with “I Think We Need To Talk.” Usually, when you hear
    someone say that, it means someone is in a bit of trouble or about to
    be in an argument. But, we discussed it as a twist where it’s a good
    thing where you see someone that you really want to go up to and
    talk to. Sometimes girls, including myself, see a guy in public that
    upon first impression looks like a great catch and is worth taking
    more time to get to know. So that’s how we came up with “We Need
    To Talk.”
  3. Who are some of your musical icons?
    I have always loved Carrie Underwood, as I said earlier. I think she
    had a lot to do with me seeing a future career in country music
    beginning at 12 years old. I also love Blake Shelton, I have called him
    my “famous boyfriend” for probably 7 years now and he doesn’t
    even know it! My biggest inspiration and icon is Shania Twain. I
    started listening to her music when I was about 15 and I couldn’t
    stop. Then, I learned about what a hard life she has had and the fact
    that she still works so hard to do what she loves was so inspiring to
    me.
  4. How would you describe your music in 3 to 5 words?
    Original, Country, Genuine, Relatable, and Unique.
  5. What was the first country concert you ever been to?
    My first country concert was Carrie Underwood’s Blown Away tour
    which was definitely life changing!
  6. What are some of your favorite venues or events to play at?
    I love playing at the Wildhorse Saloon in downtown Nashville, it is
    always such a fun time and I love that there is a dance floor so people
    can dance and have a great time with me! I also loved playing Song
    Suffragettes at the Listening Room. It has been a goal of mine to be a
    part of Song Suffragettes since I had heard of it and finally was able
    to make that happen, I also love the listening room because unlike
    some other writer’s rounds, people are truly there to listen to the
    songs you have written.
  7. Is there anything else coming up with your music in 2019?
    I am currently working on an album and the goal for that is 2020, but
    I could surprise you!
  8. What is one of your favorite quotes?
    I don’t have many favorite quotes, but I have a favorite Bible verse
    that is Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, Declares
    the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a
    hope and a future.”
  9. Is there anything else you would like to share?
    I just want to thank everyone for all the love on “We Need To Talk”.
    The sound is so different than my other music so I was a little bit
    nervous with putting it out. But with all the overwhelming support I
    am so glad to see that people seem to love it as much as I do!
