Q&A session with Candace Crawford
What songs do you listen to get pumped up to win?
If there was a song about your life, what would it be called? Who would sing it (dead or alive!)?
What is your go-to song while traveling?
“This Town” by Kygo & Sasha Sloan
What is your go-to karaoke song?
“You’re the One That I Want” by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John because karaoke songs are always more fun when performed with someone.
What is your favorite music video?
“Here It Goes Again” by OK GO. I love the use of treadmills and that it was shot in a single continuous take. It always makes me want to copy it.
Where is your favorite place to listen to music?
In the car! We do a lot of driving from one venue to another, and one of the best ways to pass the time is listening to music.
Which musician do you most admire?
Gord Downie from The Tragically Hip. I admire him not only as a musician, who paved the road for so many after him but also for his philanthropic work with the environment and indigenous affairs. He never stopped supporting causes that were close to his heart, even after being diagnosed with a brain tumor. He continued to do what he loved and never stopped living.
What is your favorite Stingray Vibe? (on the Stingray Music mobile app)
“Ultimate ‘90s Hip-Hop”, “Alternative Now”, and “Massive Classic Rock”. I honestly can’t choose between them. It all depends on how I’m feeling at the moment in time and what I’m doing. I have a few favorites because one vibe doesn’t really work for everything. In a week, I will probably have added two more!
If you could only listen to 5 songs for the rest of your life, what would they be?
- “New Orleans is Sinking” by The Tragically Hip
- “Hypnotize” by The Notorious B.I.G.
- “I’m Not The Sun” by Arkells
- “Cocoon (acoustic version)” by Milky Chance
- “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes
In case you missed it!
