Kris Allen Discusses Co-Writing with Chris Daughtry, Mat Kearney and Jon Foreman

Sheryl Stewart of Nashville radio station 105.1 did her homework prior to her recent radio interview with Kris Allen.

She asked the good questions.   For instance, about co-writes?   She got Kris talking about what it was like to co-write with Chris Daughtry (Kris confirms the Daughtry co-write!), singer/songwriter Mat Kearney and Switchfoot’s Jon Foreman. Kris says he admired their mix of humility and confidence.

About his recent recording sessions in London–Kris only got 4 hours of sleep a night, never adjusting to the time change.   During his 6 day trip across the pond, he worked on his album, took some meetings, and played tourist a bit.   No, he was not invited to Simon Cowell’s big birthday bash.

Kris says he’s got a couple of songs that are done, other songs that still need some tweaks, and more recording to do. (Kris was in the studio, with producer, Kevin Rudolf, on Tuesday.)

Tour plans?   Kris says his tour will start around February…”and ending never, ” he says.

Mute Math, Paramour and Justin Timberlake are who he’s been listening to on his Ipod lately…
