“Like one of them reckless, wild cousins that you love being around but you know they’re going to be absolutely crazy,” he joked, adding that that’s what “every moment” the two shared is like.

“I knew us being buds and writing a little bit together, that we were going to be fine bantering back and forth,” the “Girl Goin’ Nowhere” singer said. “I didn’t know that we were going to have to rein it in so much, because we will just sit there and talk to each other and forget that there’s something that we’re supposed to be doing.”

“So the jokes are off the cuff,” McBryde continued, adding that it was an “absolutely wonderful” experience.
