“I think my goal for the next couple of years would be to make departures in little ways and do things a little differently,” said the Grammy-winning singer, “and try to maintain a balance between always providing your fans with what they’ve always liked from you and continuing to write all my own songs, but I’d love to make collaborations in different directions that aren’t exactly expected.”
“Next year we’ve got a pretty heavy touring schedule, but we’ve learned this fall how to balance that, how to have a good time at home,” said Haywood. “All of us are good and cognizant about having our loved ones out with us when we can and being able to get home when we can. So I think continuing to find the balance, which is where we get our inspiration and where our songs come from, is this personal life.”
“I’d love to actually write a song that was nominated for song of the year. That would be a huge thing to me,” said Lambert, who is kicking off her “On Fire” tour Jan. 12 in Rockford, Ill. “Eventually over the next five years I’d maybe like to win entertainer of the year — when I’ve earned it.”
“I really would like to see Dia’s record take off and do well, and Xenia has made a great record. My heart is there for them,” he said.
“I have a career that’s on a bit of autopilot in the sense that I feel I can rest easy a little bit more. … I don’t feel that people are just going to leave me. They’re not going to just move on. We do well, and it’s a great feeling,” said Paisley. “I guess I’ve just learned to be a little more comfortable with who I am.”
