Between his single with Sara Evans, "Infinite Love," and his family's new Christmas album, A Chrisley Christmas, you'd think Todd Chrisley has been performing his whole life. Not so much! In our exclusive interview with the Chrisley Knows Best star, our very own Patriarch of Perfection tells us just how scary it was to open his mouth. Hard to believe, we know!
USA Network: So, what is Todd Chrisley's karaoke jam?
Todd Chrisley: I don't do karaoke.
USA Network: Why not?
Todd Chrisley: I just never have.
USA Network: What are you waiting for? Christmas?
Todd Chrisley: I know, right? I'm waiting for a check! If I were to do karaoke, It would probably be something by Jason Aldean or Tim McGraw, or the old ones like Conway Twitty and Charlie Pride. It would probably be some of the older artists.
USA Network: Speaking of country music, how did the country artists who sing on A Chrisley Christmas come to the project?
Todd Chrisley: I think that the artists who participated on the Christmas album are all fans of the show, and I'm obviously a fan of theirs, so when they asked, "Who would you like to have on the album with you?" I threw out names. I think there were only, like, three people that couldn't make it. I'm not going to call their names out because I'm still friends with them...
USA Network: Well, listen. Volume two. You don't want to burn any bridges...
Todd Chrisley: [Laughing] Exactly. One of my favorite songs on the album is "Go Scrooge Yourself" and that's Michael Ray. Michael is such a good guy, just an all-around very nice person, and he kills it with that song!
USA Network: What is a Christmas song that you can listen to all year round?
Todd Chrisley: '"Twas the Night Before the Casino" by Nanny Faye! But I love "Silent Night." That song is a very sweet, wholesome, innocent song. It's beautiful, timeless.
USA Network: Have you ever done any kind of talent show for singing or anything like that?
Todd Chrisley: I have not done a talent show. I think that I have been auditioning my entire life for where I am right now.
USA Network: It takes a lot of guts to sing in front of people.
Todd Chrisley: It was probably the thing that I was most afraid of. It feels very... vulnerable.
USA Network: Is there a song on the album that means something extra special to you and your family?
Todd Chrisley: I think that the entire album is very special to all of us for different reasons, but my daughters said recently that they were so glad that I did the song "Under the Mistletoe," because that was something that they would have forever.
And speaking of singing, SING opens Dec. 21. Finally! A mom as hard-working as Julie Chrisley!
