In a sit down interview, conducted over Zoom by One Country’s Kelly Sutton, Laine shared his memories of American Idol, finally releasing new music and hitting the road for his first outing.

“That was all new to me. But once we started playing shows it was a bunch of fun,” Laine said. “We made a lot of memories on the road and ate a bunch of different food nad seen a lot of different places. But on tour you’re playing to the people that love your music and all kinds of different fans. That’s what I love to do, I love to met my fans and see them out on the crowd.

Additionally, Laine surprised his fans with a new video for one of those two singles, “Ground I Grew Up On.”

“What I love most about this music video is, it is spot on what I love to do and how I grew up, hanging with all my buddies on the river and just having a good time!” said Laine.  “I hope that it helps people in Louisiana and the whole country in this crazy time we’re all going through together.  Hope it reminds people of the fun we will be having again soon.”
