Exclusive Interview with Bria Wilson
Why country music ?
~ I grew up on country music! It's a genre I always find myself going back to no matter what my mood is.
If everything would be possible (waking the dead included), which two people should sing the ultimate country duet?
~ Oh my, there's so many amazing artists out there! But if I HAD to choose, I think I'd have to go back to the older country and say Reba McEntire and Johnny Cash. I think they would have made amazing music together.
What song you ever recorded means the most to you and why?
~ The song Too Soon means the most to me out of all my songs. It was written for my dad who I lost suddenly in January of 2016. I miss him every single day and I think this was the best way to honour him in my own way.
Who would you like to write a song for you?
~ I would love to have a song written by Ed Sheeran. I know he's not country, but I honestly think he'd be able to write something amazing in country music.
What is the one thing that readers/fans would be surprised to know about you?
~ I'm a very sporty person. As a child I played Indoor and Outdoor Soccer, Hockey, Softball and more! I loved being active and I don't think that'll ever change.
Give us one country song you never want to hear on radio anymore and tell us why.
~ This is a fairly difficult question for me, seeing as the radio stations I listen to tend to not over play many songs. But if I had to choose a song it would have to be "Man I feel like a woman" by Shania Twain. It has been super overplayed over the years (even with it being an older song). You tend to still hear it everywhere.
What is the question interviewers never seem to ask you and...you wish they would? (Please provide your answer as well.)
~ I find a question I don't get asked enough is where I see myself in 10 years. Where I see myself is still pursing, writing and recording music. I also hope to start my very own charity one day which will focus on helping out families who have children with disabilities.
Describe the ultimate recording studio (not the technique but the facilities)
~ My ultimate recording studio would include a hone like setting where the atmosphere is welcoming, calming and all around and just all around a zen surrounding.
Johnny or June ?
~ I would choose Johnny, my reason behind this is because like me he went through a lot of hard in his life which persuaded him t create a lot of the music we all know and love today.
Are you still nervous before going on stage and if so, do you use any "rituals" to calm you nerves.
~ I think I will always have a bit of a nervous feel going up on stage, but when I start thinking about why I'm there and the fans that have showed up to also enjoy my music it tends to calm me down.
What was the most memorable day in your musical career and tell us why.
~ I recorded my songs on my EP I was in complete shock and still thought it was a dream. This opportunity has been nothing but a dream come true and I couldn't ask for anything more.
