Conner Sweet~ Q&A!!!

1.   Hi Conner, can you tell us all a little bit about yourself before becoming a country musician? Before I became a country musician, I was just a kid with big dreams, growing up in middle Tennessee. My life was centered around school, church, and learning to play guitar. 
2.  Who are some of your musical icons? My musical heroes would have to be Alan Jackson and Keith Whitley 
3.  What is the background story behind your latest single, “Times Like These?” “Times Like These” was written the first week of March 2020, just a few days after a tornado tore through Nashville. I went in for a writing session with Liz Hengber and Lance Carpenter, and we were talking about all the good coming out of people during such a hard time. The stories of helping hands and kind hearts lead to us writing “Times Like These.” 
4.   How would you describe your music in 3 to 5 words? It’s just Country
5.  What are few of your favorite events or venues to play at? My background of performing on lower Broadway (Nashville) has given me a real love and appreciation for the loud Honky Tonks that line the street; however, there’s also something magical about some of the quaint performance venues that plays home to so many of the intimate writer’s rounds.
6. What is your recording process like when creating new music? I love making new music. Each project is different from start to finish, and with every project, I like to take my time. I want to feel confident in every aspect of my music before I put it out. It may be nitpicky, but I always try pushing myself to create the best music I can.
7.  What do you like to do in your free time when you are not working on your music? This summer I’ve spent a lot of time on the water. I love the sun and the waves. I love making music, though so it’s hard for me to take breaks sometimes. 
8.  What is one of your favorite quotes? I love George Strait’s music, and one of my favorite quotes is from one of his songs. It says, “there’s a difference in living and living well.”
9. Is there anything else you would like to share? Just thank you to all who have loved and supported this song. I’m so honored by the impact this song has had on some people during these times.
