Johnny Day~ “Q&A”

1.     Hello Johnny, can you tell me a little bit about yourself before you became a country musician?
So my musical journey began when I was 12. My mother bought me a guitar for Christmas. I was obsessed. A few years later I found myself in a cover band learning from some seasoned vets how to play Classic Rock and Blues. I did this until high school and then joined some bands that were quite diverse in style. (Jazz, Reggae, Classical, Alternative Rock, and Heavy Metal)

2.     What was one of the first country album or CD you ever purchased? 
The first country record that I remember myself going out and acquiring was Brad Paisley’s 5th Gear. Then I quickly acquired all his other records. Saying I was obsessed would be an understatement. 

3.     What is the background story behind your brand new single “Nothin’ Better To Do?”
“Nothin’ Better To Do” is about a man reminiscing about his teenage years when he made some not so great decisions due to the boredom he experienced growing up in a small town and his inexperienced heart. 

4.     How would you describe your music in 3 to 5 words?
Uplifting, Real, Unapologetic 

5.     What are a few of your favorite events or venues to play at?
I loved playing at BMI’s Key West Songwriter’s Festival last year. I love the Comfort Dental Amphitheater in Denver, CO. I honestly love playing everywhere in Nashville. The Sutler has been great to me. Gotta give a shout out to the John Brown Songwriter’s Festival at the Florabama as well. I love them!  

6.     Is there anything else new coming up with your music later in the year?
I have a bunch of New Music coming out this year so don’t blink! If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook you’ll be able to stay up to date with each single release! There will be atleast 3 more releases this year.  

7.     If you could sing a duet with any singer or group who would it be and why?
That’s hard. If I could sing a duet with anyone it’d probably be FGL, Keith Urban, or Brad Paisley. Lol sorry, it’s too hard to choose just one. 

8.     Where do you hope to see your music career in 5 to 10 years?
I’m shooting for the stars honestly but as long my music serves my fans and brings joy to their lives, that’s what means the most to me. 

9.     What is one of your favorite quotes?
Three most important things in life are attitude, attitude, and attitude. 

10.  Is there anything else you would like to share?
I love to chat and meet new people so please reach out to me on whatever social media platform you use! You can find me at @johnnydayofficial on Instagram and Facebook. @johnnydaymusic on Twitter. Thank you so much for having me on the blog! Love you all! 

Johnny Day~ “Artist Spotlight”

            Johnny Day is a new up-and-coming country singer/songwriter. Day was born into the modern generation of part of the country in the Northeastern section of Colorado. He taught himself how to play the guitar after being awestruck with country musician Brad Paisley could do. His love for old country sounds of his dad’s FM radio has given his new country origins a supported base in the old school setting.

            Unfairness from an early relationship only affected more loneliness in Day’s young life, and that led to a clear focus on music. But, music transports life and as an artist grows it finally brought him musical achievements, it also brought him his wonderful wife and the daughter she brought with her. Struggling between being artist and provider, Day relocated his family to Tennessee but also kept his good-paying oil field job on the plains of Northeastern Colorado

            Continually tugged in many directions, from the seclusion of the road, to the beautiful masterpiece of his family life at home, from the music that pushes his soul, wanting to be a great husband and dad and it is showcased, within every chord and lyric of his upcoming EP.

            Day is an experienced performer and has played at some of the most famous venues in Colorado: Comfort Dental Amphitheater (Fiddler’s Green), The Budweiser Event Center, The Mishawaka Amphitheater, and The Thunder Mountain Amphitheater. 

            On April 24, 2020, Day brand new single “Nothin’ Better To Do,” came out and it is available on both Spotify and iTunes. If you would like to find out more about Johnny Day then check out his website at (https://www.johnnydayofficial.com).
