Cris: What's been the most challenging aspect of your current rise in your career?
Jimmy Elcock: I've been lucky in my young career to have a lot of work. Playing for both Logan Mize and Jamie Lynn Spears, both signed acts, you have to make sure each is getting your A-game.
There was one weekend last summer Logan played Saturday night in Nebraska. I had a cousin come from Colorado to pick me up in western Nebraska and drive me seven hours to the Denver airport to catch a 5:00 am flight to California to make a load in with Jamie Lynn. Then I flew back to South Dakota for a show with Logan that night.
So that's the grind that nobody sees. But I need to be there. I can't be like, “Oh my night was so awful I'm going to play this gig pretty terribly because I didn't sleep at all in the last 36 hours ...” No. You have to be there with a smile on your face and be energetic, making sure you are giving everybody your best product.
