ARTIST: Chris Milam
HOMETOWN: Memphis, Tennessee
CURRENT LOCATION: As I write this? Memphis, Tennessee. As you read this? Probably touring through your town, stealing muffins from a hotel breakfast buffet.
AMBITIONS: To one day pay for those muffins at the hotel breakfast buffet.
TURN-OFFS: Misuse of “literally.”
TURN-ONS: Everything else.
DREAM GIG: Any gig where fans leave happy and multiply. I’m not picturing the mountaintop yet; I’m climbing.
FAVORITE LYRIC: The most recent is “She might think that I’ve forgotten her/don’t tell her it isn’t so.” I’ve heard that song countless times. Yesterday, it popped up and LITERALLY killed me. Favorite song title: “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long (To Stop Now).” It’s perfect. e.e. cummings got nothing on Otis & Jerry Butler.
SONG I WISH I WROTE: “Graceland.“
5 PEOPLE I’D MOST LIKE TO HAVE DINNER WITH: Keith Richards, Amy Poehler, Andre 3000, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Richard Sherman.
MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: Any concert where I hear something I haven’t heard before.
I WROTE THIS SONG BECAUSE… I was dealing with a broken engagement and I had to.
