“The thing I’m most excited about for next year is getting to add some new songs off the ‘Night Train’ album into my show.  As a musician, it’s great to be able to shake up the set list and think of cool ways to present these new songs in the live show.  We’re already working on some cool production ideas, and we’re going to come back from the holidays ready to go.  I’m a big fan of both Jake and Thomas Rhett, so it’ll be awesome to have those guys out with us.”
