Bradlee Wannemacher gushes about meeting his fans during his recent Good Times tour stop

Bradlee Wannemacher knows that his success is all thanks to his dedicated fans who not only followed him as he competed on Season 14 of "American Idol" and the "X Factor," but also religiously watch his addicting YouTube videos. Because of them, his YouTube channel has been able to amass over 21 million video views and has put Wannemacher on the map as one of the most influential and sought after musical acts on the platform.

So when he gets to meet them (and thank them) in person, it's a real treat. Recently Wannemacher embarked on the Good Times Tour, where he was given the incredible opportunity to interact with his social media followers in a more intimate setting. And as he notes, it was just as special for him as it was for them.

On the heels of his tour, we caught up with the talented singer/songwriter about what it was like to meet his fans. Ahead, find out why catching up with his followers up close and personally was so special to him and what artist he would love to collaborate with!

You just finished your Good Times Entertainment tour. What was your favorite moment?
I loved meeting my viewers! That literally will always put a smile on my face. Youtubers sometime take for granted the little number under their videos that shows how many people have viewed their video. When it says a couple 100,000 people, we sometimes forget that those numbers are actual people!



If you could collaborate with any other artist, who would it be?
If I could collaborate with anyone right now it would have to be Sia. I think she is the most authentic person in music today. Her lyrics are real and true, and she has the most incredible unique voice!
