You recently released your self-titled EP, what has been the feedback on it so far?

Kyle Daniel: “The response we have received from this release is almost unbelievable. It seems as though something new surfaces every day, and it is a very exciting time to watch all of it unfold the way it has. I’m very grateful for all of the love so far!”

How would you describe the sound of the EP for someone who hasn’t listened to it yet?

Kyle Daniel: “It is a solid mix of southern-Americana and country. It’s very straight ahead and hopefully, each song is catchy enough to get stuck in your head!”

You co-wrote every track on it, do you have any one in particular that is the most meaningful to you? 

Kyle Daniel: “I think each song really has a special place in my heart, but “That Somebody Ain’t Me” is probably my favorite. It is such a raw and intensely emotional song, it just levels me every time I sing it. That song resonates with me and I hope that it does with you as well.”

Who have been your biggest supporters throughout this whole process?

Kyle Daniel: “My parents, without a doubt. I don’t really think any parents want their 15-year-old son saying “I wanna be a professional musician.” My parents never batted an eye. They have been so encouraging and supportive throughout my entire career, and although it’s taken over half of my life to see the hard work really start to pay off, I know they’re beyond excited to see what’s ahead! Thanks, Mom and Dad for never giving up on this dream of mine!” 

What are some of your goals for the rest of 2018?

Kyle Daniel: “I want to tour as much as I possibly can and try to spread the music as far as it will go. I would also like to get back in the studio and start working on the full-length release if touring will allow it.”

What has been your favorite moment of your musical career so far?

Kyle Daniel: “The time I got to step foot on the Grand Ole Opry and play back a few years ago. What a rush! It was an unforgettable night that felt like it went by in a whirlwind. I looked up, and it was over. Talk about a rollercoaster ride!”

Since we are Celeb Secrets Country, what is a secret or fun fact about the EP that no one would know just by listening to it?

Kyle Daniel: “Fun fact: it only took a single session to record the entire EP. We knocked out 6 songs in an 8 hour block. Also fun fact: there is a 6th song you haven’t heard yet 😉 Maybe you’ll hear it, maybe you won’t!”
