Enjoy Paul Mcdonald’s best quotes below.
“I sing both in my shower and in my car, mostly in my car, because I have this weird thing – whenever I’m singing to the radio – my friends kind of hate it – but I pick out the harmonies in my head, and I’m singing the harmonies to the tracks and I’m jamming it out.”
“I don’t want to be the cliche American Idol dude. I want to be different, you know – that’s the whole goal, me and music. It’s about being yourself and being unique.”
“If my life were a song, what would it be? ‘A Never Ending Road of Musical Good Times’.”
“My favorite music to sing would be my own songs, my original songs, just because I know them, you know I write the tunes, so my favorite songs are the newest ones that I write. That’s what I like to sing the most, because it means something, it’s real, it comes from me.”
“They said just keep doing my thing, don’t try to change anything, which I won’t.”
“I’ve been touring for so long, I’ve kind of honed into exactly what I am, I’m an artist so if you like it, you like it, if you don’t you don’t, you know?”
