QUESTIONS

How long have you been doing country music?

I've been doing country music now for 8 years.


Do you feel that country music has room for growth?  In what ways can the industry benefit?

Country music has room for growth along the lines of recognizing the difference between traditional country and pop country.
I'm trying to bridge the gap between Nashville and Texas. Favor the twang sound in country music.

Who are some of the artists that give you inspiration?

I have a long list but here are some of those that come to mind. Bands  like the Eagles, Lynard Skynard, Rolling Stones and Alabama.
Artists like Alan Jackson, Charlie Daniels, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Joe Nichols, Pat Green and George Strait.

  

How did it feel to win a PRSA Award for Excellence and was this your first award?

Winning the PRSA Award was breathtaking! I was honored to receive such an award for such a great charity! My first award among many now.
 


I have heard of Akademia, How was your experience with them?

I had a tremendous experience working with Academia. I was skeptical at first but then realized the caliber of music stars they have helped in the music industry.


What inspired you to write the single "Girl Like You"?

While sitting at home one day I decided to put my feelings into action about COVID-19. Wrote this song about finding love during the pandemic and still living life in spite of the challenges.  A little humor about the series on Netflix, "Tiger King"!


What is the most impactful moment in your career?

A impactful moment was appearing for a festival with top acts in country music, celebrities and  movie stars. Dukes of Hazzard was a show I grew up watching. This was at John Schneider's Studio for an event called, "Bo's Extravaganza"!

If you could be anything else, What would it be? And Why?

Maybe run for a job In politics. Mayor, Governor or even run for congress. A way to help humanity.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
