I’ve heard most of the new record which is pretty, pretty good. Very, very good. The standard just keeps getting raised. When you hear how good the songs are on the last record and then you hear these ones… It’s weird, she’s just growing as a songwriter, I guess.

I’ve found that choosing a great opening act depends just as much on who the person is offstage as who they are onstage. When someone is as approachable and outgoing as Ed, you know you’re not going to deal with tantrums or diva-like behavior that I really have no patience for. He became friends with the band, crew, and dancers. He came out onstage again every night during my show to sing a song with me. We have a big party for fans we’ve randomly selected from the crowd after the show, and Ed was almost always there. Ed just goes above and beyond for people and having that kind of a generous spirit around lifts everyone’s mood. I think the fans can see that in him and that’s why he’s connected in such a profound way.
