Q & A with David
Q. David, for someone young, you have a high revelence for traditional country music, like with your song "Waylon". Where does that come from?
A. I would have to say that comes from understanding that is where we started. If we forget where we come from, we can't ever move forward.
Q. What is your favorite thing about performing live?
A. Just seeing so many people having a great time! I get to do what I love, and getting to watch people enjoy it is a bonus.
Q. You write many of your own songs. What country music songwriter do you admire the most and why?
A. I would have to say a tie between Brantley Gilbert who just writes some amazing stuff over all , and Jimmy Yeary who has written, or co-written, such hits as "I Drive Your Truck" and "I'm Gonna Love You Through It". They both are able to tap into the depths of everyday life and emotion and really set it to music.
Q. Where is your favorite place to play and why?
A. I am not sure I could say I have a favorite. I have played so many places that have been fantastic (Wild Bills in Duluth, Hard Rock's all over the southeast, Wild Horse Saloon, etc). I am always honored that I am allowed to get up on a stage and entertain with my music... I enjoy it each and every time, and love when I am asked back.
Q. If you could open for any one act, who would that be and why?
A. That list goes on and on and on.... but if you are going to make me pick just one right now, it would be Eric Church. The reason being because he also has a deep respect for the roots of country music, all the while being true to the artist he is.
