Q: What song are you most excited to play?

Q: What is the thing that you love the most about being on the road playing your wonderful music? What advice can you give to a musician/songwriter who is just starting out?
Tim: My favorite thing is playing live! I love it! My advice would be to get out in front of people as often as you can!! Take every gig!!
Q: What’s the most amount of shows that you’ve done in the least amount of time?
Tim: Back in my bar days I played 14 shows in 12 days! My voice was sore to say the least haha!
Q: What was your favorite toy as a kid that you still have? Or wish you did?
Tim: I have a ukulele from when I was 3! I guess you could say it was my first guitar.
Q: Are you doing any covers on tour??
Tim: No covers on this run!
Q: What’s the hardest part of being on tour?
Tim: For me, it’s being away from my family, not being able to help with the day to day work of raising the kids and running a household.
Tim: Good question! We have separate busses because our bands and crew travel with us. 12 bunks on each bus!!
Q: Will your families be joining you on part of the Tour? Has to be tough on you guys…
Tim: My family will be at the st Catharines Show. @AmandaHicksRN will be at the Guelph show, but it’s tough with the kids in school and Amanda working full time.
Q: Is there anything in particular that has been more difficult or easier about prepping for this upcoming tour compared to past ones?
Tim: Good question! Working out the set was a little more difficult this time, trying to figure out which tunes we play and don’t play! Tough calls had to be made haha!
Q: Okay better question how many bottles of @TitosVodka will be consumed during this tour?
Tim: Haha awesome! I guess vodka is kinda like Tequila’s Cousin, I’m down!
Q: What’s the weirdest compliment you’ve gotten from a fan?
Tim: Once a fan asked me to sign their Gator… that was a little strange haha!
Q: Any chance you might ever come back to your StompinGround at @barcrazyhorse some day?
Tim: We usually stop by there for dinner whenever we are in town!
Q: How many songs will you and @Tebey write on this tour?
Tim: None. Too busy drinking….
