In a new interview with ABC News, the country music superstar and his country superstar idol are on the same page when it comes to the country singer-in-waiting’s upcoming appearance on the network.
The country music star, who recently appeared on the show “Dancing With the Stars,” says the show will take him on a road trip in America and that he will have a new song and video for the new season.
The star says that his idol is looking forward to playing his new song, “It’s Me” on the series, which is expected to premiere in 2019.
“I can tell you I’m in a good place right now, but I’m not going to lie to you, I’m a little bit nervous,” the country star said in the interview.
“I think we have a good relationship, and it’s just kind of like, ‘This is a new era for me and I’m going to take it to the next level.'”
But he added, “I’m very excited to be on ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ and I think it’s going to be really great for me to be in a show where I can be a part of it.
It’s going at a very exciting time in my career, and I’ve been working so hard for that.”
The star, whose song “Love Is My Drug” is the country country hit of the year, also talked about how his upcoming appearance at the 2018 Grammys is an opportunity for him to give back to the community and share his love of music.
“When I first saw the show, I was like, This is a show I can make money off,” the star said.
“And now I’m able to put my music out there and show people I’m happy to be a country artist.”ABC News’ Jennifer LaPorte contributed to this report.
