Some of country’s big names sat down with Yahoo! Music’s RAM Country blog to answer what they do before a show and what they’d be doing if they weren’t making music. The video features responses from Carrie Underwood, Gloriana, Jessie James, Craig Morgan, Luke Bryan, and Thomas Rhett answering the question about their rituals before a show, and Thompson Square, Craig Morgan, Kip Moore, Easton Corbin, Aaron Lewis and Brantley Gilbert answering where they’d be if they weren’t making music.
Carrie Underwood: “Right before we go on stage the band and I get together for like 10 or 15 mins. We have that moment to kind of joke around with each other, break the ice a little bit and we always pray before we go on stage. So, it’s kind of a nice calm before the storm.”
Jessie James: “Usually I chew up before, during, and after my shows! I’m never NOT chewing gum. I don’t know, it’s weird but it works.”
Thomas Rhett: “I usually go to the bathroom seven times before I walk on stage. If I haven’t completes seven successful bathroom breaks it’s gonna be rough show.”
Brantley Gilbert: “I was in college studying to be a relationship counselor but I probably would’ve been responsible for more divorces than Facebook so its probably a good thing it didn’t work out.”
