Drake White Learning to Balance Marriage and Music
Drake White recently celebrated his anniversary with his wife, so he's no stranger to the challenges of touring while being married. Luckily, Eric Church and Zac Brown have been teaching him a thing or two. White stopped by the Taste of Country Nights Studio and opened up about the balance.
White and his wife celebrated their second anniversary in early June and like many artists he's learning about the struggle of balancing a family with life on the road. The "Livin' the Dream" singer says he doesn't have any couples he looks up to as role models, but does learn a lot from his experienced married tourmates.
“I’ve had the opportunity to be on tour with Eric Church and Zac Brown and these guys and see how they balance marriage and multiple kids," he explains. "It’s interesting how people do it. I think the key is to stay open and not take yourself too seriously and just kind of stay in communication.”
White admits he's "not exactly sure" how Brown manages his children and life on the road but says he, "has the ability to multitask for sure. That’s no doubt.”
The Alabama native isn't just touring while being a married man -- he's also been working on new music. White's Spark drops Aug. 19 and his debut includes his two singles, "Livin' the Dream" and "It Feels Good." He calls the record diverse.
"There’s a lot of diversity in it from ‘Waitin' on the Whiskey to Work’ all the way to ‘It Feels Good.’ I mean there’s a lot of differences in those two tunes. It’s just a plethora, a combination of my dad’s old record collection of classic rock and growing up in the South Appalachia Mountains. Just breathing in that air out there.”
