Celeb Secrets Country: You guys have had a pretty crazy year. You’re on the road pretty much every weekend and you’ve been working on new music. Do you ever stop to just take it all in and think, Is this really happening?

Charlie: “Actually like everyday we do. We’ll be riding down the street and just think this is awesome. Last night we played in Atlanta and a year ago we played across the street for like four people but we had a thousand people in Buckhead Theater last night.”

Gary: “It’s fun, it really is. Sometimes it’s hard to just stop and take it all in cause you’re moving so fast. As soon as you climb one mountain you gotta climb another.”

Celeb Secrets Country: What venue would you like to play that you haven’t yet?

Charlie: “A stadium. Honestly, if we could fill up a stadium that would be pretty awesome.”

Gary: “Yeah, a stadium would be pretty cool. Of course The Ryman too; we’d love to play The Ryman one day.”

Charlie: “Red Rocks is a cool venue too.”

Celeb Secrets Country: You guys are together a lot, pretty much 24-7. Do you have habits that rub off on each other?

Charlie: “Honestly, you spend so much time with someone you kind of subconsciously start turning into the same person. It sounds weird, but you start to pick each other’s habits up just to be respectful in a way. I’ve turned into a nicer dude.”

Gary: “Yeah, You kind of just adapt to what the other person’s doing. We do spend a lot of time together, but it works for us.”

Celeb Secrets Country: You guys have released some awesome new music this year from “Depending On The Night,” to “WD-40.” What is your favorite song to date that you’ve done together?

Gary: “I would say, “Ginny.” It was the first song we ever wrote together and kind of like the unintentional spark that started Muscadine Bloodline.”

Charlie: “I agree, “Ginny,” for sure.”

Celeb Secrets Country: Any artists you’d like to co-write with in the future?

Charlie: “We love Chris Stapelton and Eric Church. We’d love to write with those guys, they are incredible.”

Celeb Secrets Country: So what does the rest of 2017 look like for Muscadine Bloodline?

Gary: “We go in the studio next week to start working on our new EP, so that’ll be good. It will probably release in January. Really we are just happy to be back in the Southeast. We’ve been traveling all over the country this summer so it’s nice to be back in the south where our main markets are. It’s cool to see your hard work start to pay off and those markets start to grow.
