CS Country: Who has been your favorite artist to open for so far?
Chelsea Bain: “Big and Rich. I’ve opened for like Tim McGraw and stuff…really cool people – like bucket list names – but they’re just such cool dudes. I sat with John Rich and he actually gave me advice and they’re just the most down-to-earth, cool people – and wanna see people do well. They were super fun, they boosted my morale.”
CS Country: What did you learn from them? (Big and Rich)
Chelsea Bain: “To keep going. Kind of like endurance, keep doing it, keep trying and see what works, what doesn’t, you know – hustle.”
CS Country: What’s your favorite part about performing at NASCAR?
Chelsea Bain: “Craziest thing ever! My favorite thing would have to be just how crazy the people are. I’ll specifically talk about Talladega because that was insane. People are bonkers. And they just get so wild, and that’s what you want when you’re standing on stage. You wanna know that people – cause you have so much adrenaline going and everything – you wanna know that they’re feeling the same way. I went over to sign autographs and hang out with fans and stuff after I got off stage and they had to pull me back, they wouldn’t let me at a certain point because people were going so crazy. And I’m like, ‘this is kind of scary, and yet it’s also awesome.’ It was the coolest thing and I learned so much from doing all the NASCAR races and of all that, but definitely the fans, are the coolest people.” (laughs)
