Watch Steve Moakler’s Wistful Performance of “Wheels” on “Today”

Steve Moakler kicked off his week with a television performance of his current single, “Wheels,” on the Today show this morning (March 27).

Prior to his performance the singer/songwriter took a minute to talk with host Kathie Lee Gifford and guest host Craig Ferguson about his current tour.

“We just kicked it off, it’s called the Highway Finds Tour,” Steve said.  “We’ve been going all over the country and hearing people sing our songs back. It’s amazing.”

Steve, who co-wrote ten out of the eleven songs on his album—including “Wheels” with Caitlyn Smith and Gordie Sampson—has also written songs for many other artists including Dierks Bentley and Reba McEntire. His current album, Steel Town,” is a tribute to his hometown Pittsburgh roots.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
