Chord Overstreet is best known for his role as Sam Evans on the hit show GLEE, but it’s his band OVERSTREET and their new alt-pop single “My Ex” that has us really excited about this conversation. Their latest EP, Man on the Moon, is out now. Now based in Los Angeles, Chord grew up in rural Kingston Springs, Tennessee and began writing songs as a teenager with his dad, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Paul Overstreet (“When You Say Nothing At All”, “Forever and Ever, Amen”). Chord tells us about the process of finding his own musical voice, learning about comedy and performance on the set of GLEE from Jane Lynch and Kristin Chenoweth, and picking up some great career advice from Jimmy Buffett. And get ready for plenty of laughs, too. Between being a master of impersonations (Wait until you hear his impressions of Matthew McConaughey and Christopher Walken!) and his hilarious story about helping deliver goats all by himself on the family farm, Chord is full of surprises.
