Chris Young's success means a fatter bank account. Something he is just now getting used to. Chris recalls that just last year he wanted to make a purchse and called his accountant to see if it was going to be all right. "I was out shopping and I found something I really wanted. I called my accountant and I had to leave them a message. So when they called back they were like, 'What are you buying?' I think they were relieved to hear that it was a brand new washing machine! Everyone laughs at me when they hear that story, but I really needed a washer. I even went to the scratch-and-dent store to buy it!"
Justin Moore is revealing that corn dogs are his absolute favorite junk food. Something he loves to get when he plays fairs this time of year. "We were playing a state fair last year, and during the middle of a show I said, 'If somebody brings me a corn dog, they can come up on my bus after the show and I'll meet them." Justin got his corn dogs all right. "Three or four corn dogs were thrown up onstage," he adds.
