I had so much fun ending the night last night at the #APMAS performing "When We Were Young" with @thejulietsimms it was an incredible experience for both of us and to get the chance to sing on stage with my best friend and soul mate meant the world to me. Thank you to @beauxevans @mikenaran and @pat_dimitri for working hard to make this performance happen and to @altpress for asking us to close the show. It was a moment I will never forget! 🆎🖤 Tomorrow we are in my hometown Cincinnati on @vanswarpedtour seeya there! #513 photo @stvthrasher
Thanks to my new pal Jake for being a good sport and letting me "hypnotize" him with a fidget spinner and for taking off all of his clothes on camera at an award show! He was so good that I won't even hold it against him that he's a Steelers fan! 👌🏻😜PS thanks @partyhardwick for hooking me up with a great cut before the show!
I know I know...."I arm wrestled a bear once"😜 and this was real goddamnit @mryanni10 didn't let me win! I swear! Anyway I feel like posting a bunch of my favorite moments from last nights #APMAS today if that's cool with you guys? Other than THIS glorious man/bear moment, what were some of YOUR favorite things/performances etc. that happened at the show last night? 🆎🖤 photo: @stvthrasher
It would be impossible to put into words just what last night meant to me. I can try to describe to you the feeling of stepping on the stage to do the opening monologue or seeing all the wonderful people in attendance laugh and smile and rock out to their favorite bands. I could try to thank all of the stage crew and everyone at AP for their incredible work and dedication to the show and I could do my best to show my gratitude for everyone who voted for me to win Song of the Year but the truth is that no matter what I say here I will only come up short. Hosting the APMAS, singing with my wife on stage in front of so many of you and being there with my family in my home state will go down as one of the greatest overall experiences of my life. Thank to Mike, Jason, Pat, Joe, Juliet, the AB band and crew, Kevin, Alyson, John, Jonathan and everyone who made it happen last night and thank YOU all for giving me this chance and supporting my career. Thanks for laughing at my jokes and singing with me. I will never forget this as long as I live. 🖤 photo: @stvthrasher

When I was around 8 or 9 years old I was at summer day camp on the west side of Cincinnati and they took us to the nearby public pool. I (a kid who couldn't swim very well beyond a doggy paddle) jumped into the deep end and tried to flail my way back to shore once I realized I was in (literally) over my head. I was trying to reach for the edge of the pool to get out but instead slammed my face against it and cracked one of my front teeth right at the root. My dentist gave me a partial fake tooth that was fused to the root and it happens to be super sharp on one side. Often times in the course of a show I'll slam the microphone into my face (clumsy) and the tooth with cut open my lip...that happened yesterday in Jones Beach. Here's your evidence 😜 today we're in Hartford! My grandpa's old stomping grounds! Set 5:50PM on Journeys Right Foot, Photos/M&G 2PM at @journeys tent and TEI at 3:45PM photo: @ryanlphotos
