Oh, guy, he’s a magic man for me. I love Dann Huff. I was really interested in dealing with him for a while. I’m grateful we worked on all 12 songs together. I like his production, in addition to enjoying him play on the records himself. He plays the guitar, slays it, and it wound up on my album. He’s an amazing gamer, and, in regards to his engineer work, I fear.

You’ve had nine No. 1 hits, and your current single, “Don’t It,” is near the top of the charts (it has considering that reached No. 1 considering that the May 15 interview). Does reaching No. 1 ever get old, and is it important to you?

Reaching No. 1 never gets old. Each time feels like the first time. It’s a true blessing and naturally a great thing for the profession.

Aw, guy, I love both. Inside your home, the sound and energy are constantly amazing. However we get to be closer to the crowd outdoors. There is nothing like summer outdoors and the energy that it brings. I’ve done both, and I enjoy both.

I enjoy this place called the Canyon in Washington state. I’m a huge fan and constantly look forward to performing there.

Exactly what is your favorite song in your collection to perform?

How about on the new cd, “Summertime Forever”?

“Good Night.” We’re finding out all the songs now. I composed that one, and writing is such a passionate experience for me. I like writing.

I like your duet “Celebration for Two” with Shania Twain from 2004. Who’s on your wish list for partnerships?

(Laughs.) There a lot of terrific vocalists out there. Colbie Caillat would be outstanding.

Who are some of your preferred existing artists?

I love Coldplay. I’m a big fan of Jamey Johnson. And of course Willie Nelson. He’s still current to me, and I’m a huge fan.

Your resume includes personal fitness instructor. Exactly what’s your trick to remaining in such great shape?

Certainly it begins to me with eating habits, consuming along with possible, specifically on trip. I run, do dumb bells, work out and stay active. When I’m home, I’m surfing. Training on the ocean keeps me in shape.

Guilty enjoyment food?

My grandmother has actually been making something called “Chocolate Delight” because I was a youngster. I don’t know exactly what’s in it, but just the word “chocolate.”

I make sure you’re ill of this concern, however are you respectable at drinkin’ beer– since you don’t have a beer gut?

Guy, I do not consume a lot of beer at all (laughs). Everything I do is in moderation. But if the night is right, I’ll have a few with pals for sure.

Have you been to Las Vegas really often?

I have quite a bit since 2003 when I started visiting, I ‘d state about 30 to 40 times.

I still want to ride the New York-New York roller coaster. It’s everything about simply being in Las Vegas– go out shopping, restaurants, all the regular stuff. Definitely laying out throughout the day by the pool. It will be nice to wake up in the warm sunlight.

What’s next for you after the new album “Summertime Forever” drops June 2 and “The Shotgun Rider Tour” ends?

Probably when the tour ends in September, we’re going to play a couple of more programs on our time. I’ll end my year in Maui, remain there, surf, spear fish and socialize with pals.

You truly do enjoy the ocean and outdoors?

I matured at the ocean. Daddy was a dredge boat employee in the Savannah and Charleston location. I’m naturally a part of the ocean because of him all my life.
