CMA Fest 2019 with Missy: Drew Baldridge

by Missy Wolf / 1798 days ago / Comments

When it comes time to schedule artist interviews for events such as CMA Fest, I become a little needy. The reason being that if I have connected with an artist previously, I cannot leave them off my schedule as we simply must reconnect and have fun. This was absolutely the case with rising country artist Drew Baldridge.

Long after the media room was closed at the famed Music City Center in Nashville, Baldridge made his way over to the historic Printer's Alley to have a conversation with me backstage at Alley Taps during our Indie Fest 3.0. I could not help but smile as soon as I saw his happy face. I knew we were about to have a good time.

We had a lot to catch up on since our last conversation and wasted no time getting right into it all. During our conversation, we discussed his recent radio tour, stories behind his music, talked about food, playing it safe, and so much more. Baldridge even shared how he is using fans to make decisions on which songs to release as singles. Are you curious? Watch our full conversation now to discover more.

Baldridge has definitely been working hard to develop music that is true to who he is. Creating a sound that is unique to himself allows Baldridge to deliver emotionally authentic music to the fans that know, love, and support him as well as the new fans just waiting to discover him. Do yourself a favor and grab his music now if you have not already done so. Be sure to follow him on social media and stay tuned for all the latest news and updates. You do not want to miss out. ~Missy

About Missy Wolf

Missy Wolf Co-Founder, Editor, Journalist & Vice President of the American Country Music Association

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
