"You learn so much," Easton tells The Boot. "That's the first tour I've ever been on, [and a] good one to start out on. Just the opportunity to go out there and play in front of that many people, and the experience of watching Darius [Rucker] and Brad."
Is performing live something you can acquire through osmosis? "You learn a lot just by watching those guys; what to do on stage, what not to do, what works and what doesn't.," Easton continues. "And of course, as an artist, you have to tailor what you do to that. And then, when something goes wrong on stage, you can't freak out. You just kind of have to go with it." Or shall we say 'Roll With It?'
Easton, who is up for three CMA Awards including New Artist of the Year, takes his music to Choshocton, Ohio October 4.
The '44th Annual CMA Awards' air live from Nashville November 10 beginning at 8PM ET.
