Q&A with American Idol Winner Kris Allen
SS: If you could work with anyone who would it be?
KA: I would love to just talk to Paul McCartney. That would be incredible, but that is definitely like a dream.
SS: Now you're working on your album. Where do you find your creative inspiration?
KA: Someone asked me awhile back, "Why do artists always write about love?" And I was like, "Love is the coolest thing that's ever happened in the world." I feel like that's definitely an inspiration. And in different situations as well—loving friends or going through a hard time with love, or me and my wife...or seeing other people love each other. That's definitely like the biggest inspiration. When it goes good or when it goes bad. That's something creatively I think about it.
SS: Is your wife going on tour with you?
KA: She's not going to come on tour with me. She could follow me around if she wanted too, but that's definitely not what she has in mind for her summer. She's going to be at home, but she'll come to some shows and we'll hang out, which will be nice.
