Cris: You were the drummer and music director for Kellie Pickler for a number of years. Now you are playing with Easton Corbin. How have you adjusted your playing, going from Kellie to Easton?
Gregg Lohman: That's a great question. A lot of what we do on the road… you are playing somebody else's parts. With Kellie -- I was with her for over 10 years -- when we would learn a tune, we would start with the original (parts). And it would evolve or we would add some stuff to it. Over time she had (drummers) from Eddie Bayers to Shannon Forrest, Chad Cromwell, Greg Morrow… a bunch of different guys on her records. So for me it was great because I was able to learn and listen to what all of those guys did. And then when I switched to Easton, his first three records were all Eddie Bayers. So I have really gotten to dive into him more. One of the (new) tunes we are playing, it was Chris McHugh. He was with Keith Urban for years. He is great. That tune we play is kind of combination of programmed drums and live drums, which to me… I have a blast playing that.
