Gavin DeGraw on Tour: He Loves Duets But Misses His Car (VIDEO)
“Once we get to the venue on the bus, I’m sitting around going, ‘Man, I really wish I had my car so I could go for a drive because I love to drive — so right now that’s the only thing missing,” the singer told us at Microsoft’s Shape The Future event to benefit the VH1 Save The Music Foundation.
So what’s his favorite part of the Caillat tour?
Thus far, his favorite moments have been sharing a duet or two with Caillat.
“We’ve been doing that recently,” he said. “It’s been a real crowd pleaser — just having the other artist walk out with the mike, start singing the other artist’s lyrics on a song. It’s been incredible.”
The former Dancing with the Stars contestant also revealed that the two have written a song together called “We Both Know.” And it seems they’ve already debuted it live: Caillat recently tweeted “Playing at the Greek in LA last night was so amazing! @GavinDeGraw & I performed our new song that we wrote together called “We Both Know.” (For a YouTube video of the performance, click here.)
As for his time at the Microsoft/VH1 benefit, DeGraw enjoyed it immensely.
“The experience today with VH1 Save the Music and Microsoft, this [was a] beautiful arrangement that was set up, just coming out here to give to children, sitting out front with all these wonderful young people, these young musicians and having them play their interpretations of songs I’ve written, live in front of me,” he said. “And then to have the opportunity to play with them, to join them, talk to them about it and exchange that moment of music and see that cross-generational moment that can happen. “
