Joe chatted with us about life as an artist, his dream collaboration, and his plans for 2017!
Joe’s latest single, “If I Had a Million Dollars”, is a country version of the song made famous by the Barenaked Ladies.
“I heard the song a long time ago and I thought it was a country song. I thought, it needs to be on country radio. So I went back and cut it from 6 minutes down to 3 minutes and there you go! It’s a great song!” said Joe.
I’d like to see how high we can get the song on radio. “If I Had A Million Dollars” is up there, it just got picked up by CMT. So I’d like to see how far we go.
For those who haven’t heard Joe’s music, he describes it as a mix between Toby Keith and Uncle Kracker. “It’s like you’re sitting on a boat, sitting on a tailgate, it’s kind of a soundtrack to that,” says Joe.
Check out this fun video Joe posted on his Instagram, where he did a mashup of Beethoven and Led Zeppelin!
When the songwriter isn’t writing or playing piano, he’s outdoors hunting or fishing.
“No phone, there’s nobody trying to get to you, it’s just that peaceful time. Everything we do is just so fast paced and so busy, it’s just nice to have that chill time,” said Joe.
As for what fans can expect to see in later this year? A lot touring!
“We’re gonna be out doing a lot of cool shows with the Boys and Girls Club of America. It’s called the family matters tour and were all coming down through the southeast, doing shows up in Iowa, the midwest. We’ll be all over the place playing a lot of fun music,” said Joe.
