In a recent interview with Brad Morris, his guitar player, it was clear that this band was the real deal. When I asked Brad about how they met and started playing together his response moved me. He said he was told about Preston and went to see him play. “Once I saw him play and saw that he was doing it for the right reason, to play good music, I knew it was the right fit.” Great music and pleasing fans with a memorable and enjoyable experience it what it is about. “It isn’t about money. That is not what motivates and inspires us to keep going. It is about playing a good show and doing what we love.” Here is what DCI asked Brad!
Missy: What do you want the fans to know about you?
Brad: We are a band out of Georgia. We do this for the right reasons, it is about the music being good.
Missy: How long have you been together?
Brad: We have been together almost a year. Our first gig was at CMA Fest in Nashville last June.
Missy: How did you all meet? How is it working with many personalities?
Brad: Preston’s agent was emailing me requesting me to play with him. I went to go check him out and immediately he had a good feel, and I knew he was doing it for the right reasons. Preston is a great writer and everyone has an amazing attitude.
Missy: Who is your favorite singer?
Brad: Anyone who has a heart and soul! I like the Black Crows and anyone who has a good feel. It doesn’t matter as long as it means something.
Missy: Who inspired you?
Brad: Well, I got a late start. I started playing when I was 20. I guess Bob Dylan, then playing with people and making money is what inspired me.
Missy: What is your favorite thing about the music industry?
Brad: Just being a part of it. I am very fortunate getting to play and be a part of music in general.
Missy: What are your goals short/long term?
Brad: My short term and long term goals are the same thing. At the end of the day, I don’t expect to be rich and famous. I want to look back and enjoy what I have done. I enjoy playing music and do not take it for granted.
Missy: Is there anyone special in your life?
Brad: I have two AMAZING daughters!
Missy: How do you balance your music with your everyday personal life?
Brad: It just works out! At least with the kids it does. Relationship wise it is hard. I don’t drink or smoke. I do all I can to make someone feel comfortable, but it can be hard.
Missy: OK….last question! How does one go about booking you?
