Meghan Trainor was one of the highlights from CBS Radio’s “We Can Survive” concert over the weekend.
Radio.com caught up with her right before she hit the stage, and she discussed her recently wrapped tour.
“I finished a tour; that was huge for me, because I haven’t done that in years,” she said. “Last tour, I had to stop to get vocal surgery, but this tour… honestly, every day, I was like, ‘Am I gonna make it?’ But when we did, I cried, I was exhausted, but so happy that I could say, ‘I could do a tour, I did it!’ Even though it was a small one.”
She also discussed her new single and video for “Better” (watch it here): “It was awesome, I did it with my good friend Tommy Parks, we wrote to this beat that our friend Tommy Brown did. We were just talking bout exes. We didn’t want to do just another dance video, we wanted it to be special and so we decided to do acting and make it dramatic, and we were lucky enough to have Beau Bridges, a legend, to do it with us. I’m proud of that video.”
She was also very excited about her duet with country star Brett Eldridge, “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” from his upcoming holiday album, Glow.
“Brett Eldridge is incredible,” she says. “I can’t believe he asked me to do that. I found out I was the only featured [guest] on the album. It was fun, really fun, doing that song, I hope we get to perform it soon.”
