Five Minutes with Country Music Artist Headlining Dublin's First Friday

American and country music artist Garrett Miles hits the stage for Dublin's First Friday on March 1.

13WMAZ: We see that you have your debut album out--what inspired the music?
Garrett: Growing up with the old country classics that were instilled from my grandparents my debut album is reminiscent of a time when the music was pure, simple and natural. It was all about the music, for me it's always about the music.

13WMAZ: Tell us about the first time you held a guitar. Did you always know you wanted to be a musician?
Garrett:  It depends on if you're asking playing or just holding, I was about 3 or 4 when I first held a guitar and started messing around but I really started playing when I was 10.

I first knew I wanted to perform when I was 8 or 9. I remember performing Elvis in front of a big crowd at karoake bars and baseball games and such. I just got bitten by the bug.

13WMAZ: Can you give us a preview on what you’re planning for your performance at  First Friday in Dublin?
Garrett: It's a combination of classic country, my original material and southern rock.  I play everything from Elvis and Ray Charles to new country like Zac Brown and Kenny Chesney.  And people seem to really like the different mix.

13WMAZ: How would you describe your style? What sets you apart from other country musicians?
Garrett: The best new country is classic. That's what I wanted to do for people, to bring back the memories of old and try to remain traditional but still keep it fresh and add my own flavor.
