Lady A’s Dave Haywood Thinks All the Fireworks Were for His Birthday

Happy birthday to Dave Haywood from Lady A!

While his birthday is July 5th, when he was younger he kinda thought all the 4th of July fireworks were a little pre-celebration for him.

Dave shares, “My mom used to tell me the fireworks were always for me, for my birthday, so I’ve always believed that that holiday was celebrating my birthday the next day.”’

Of course he knows the truth now, but America’s birthday has always been a special time for him, “It’s a special kind of week for us to get together as family and have the 4th together. And I love fireworks. We grew up in Georgia and I think fireworks were illegal most of our life. We would always buy them and sneak them in from South Carolina and shoot off sparklers and Roman candles and black cats and all the fun stuff you’d buy at the fireworks store. So, it’s a special holiday for a lot of reasons.”

Happy birthday Dave – perhaps some champagne is order to celebrate!

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.”
