Exclusive Interview with Charlie Painter
Why country music ?
~ I have listened to Country music as long as I can remember. I have sang country music since I was a young child listening to Jim Reeves an Eddy Arnold in my bedroom and singing with them. My mother always encouraged me to sing and thought I had a beautiful voice. My mother always wanted me to do what she had to turn down as a young lady: Become a Country Music Artist.
If everything would be possible (waking the dead included) , which two people should sing the ultimate country duet?
~ Hank Williams Sr. and Patsy Cline
What song you ever recorded means the most to you and why?
~ You Don’t Love Me Anymore. Tells a story of a time in the recent past of my life.
Who would you like to write a song for you?
~ Harlan Howard
Whisky wine beer or water?
What is the question interviewers never seem to ask you and...you wish they would? (Please provide your answer as well.)
~ What does it feel like being on stage in front of all those people? It is great fun to me. I love watching people dance, sing. And smile when I sing for them. If I can sing on stage and make someone happier and brighten the day for them, then I have done my job.
Describe the ultimate recording studio (not the technique but the facilities)
~ Excellent acoustics, windows where the public could watch live recordings happening.
Johnny or June ?
