We had the pleasure of chatting with Todd Chrisley, star and patriarch of USA Network’s hit series Chrisley Knows Best. He previewed what fans and viewers can expect from the second half of season 4, the blessings and opportunities that are coming his way, and some new music.
Read on for our interview with Todd Chrisley below:
Thank you for talking with us today!
Todd Chrisley: Thank you, Noelle, for being here. How are you?
I’m great. I’m happy to be talking to you. I’m wondering how you would say this season compares to the previous ones?
I think this season’s going to be somewhat different because remember, you guys have been watching us since Chase and Savannah were 14 and 15. And they’re young adults now, and you know, they’re going out into the world and they’re in college and … Chase is trying to pursue a career in real estate. Because, listen, he has forgotten more than I’ve ever known.
And so I’m going through the struggles with that, and I’m still trying to teach a young adult. So I think that what you’re going to see coming up is … kids in transition. You’re going to see parents doing the same thing that so many parents across this country are doing when their kids leave home, which is us trying to still micromanage to a certain degree, but how much we can micromanage?
I think that it becomes increasingly more difficult because they have an outside interference now [that] they didn’t have before. That’s significant others, and people that they think that they’re in love with and that hung the moon. And, you know, they’re going to be with them until the day that they die, and I just want to bang my head against the concrete.
So many wonderful opportunities have arisen from your time on this show, including your duet with Sara Evans. Is there anything else you haven’t tackled yet that you’d love to try and get into and experience?
You know, the duet was a beautiful song that [Shane Stevens] and I wrote about mine and Julie’s relationship – how we started – and Sara’s been a friend of mine for a long time, and the song was very well received. I mean, I was at dinner last night with Jay DeMarcus and his wife Allison with Rascal Flatts, and you know, we’re going to do something together.
So I’m certainly going to be working – I’m working right now on my clothing line. Savannah’s working on her clothing line. Savannah has a deal with Home Shopping Network that she has signed off on, that she’s doing with Giuliana Rancic. That’s going to be coming out, I think, in November.
So, you know, we’ve been very blessed with opportunities. I think that certainly … to whom much is given, much is required. I think that we certainly have an obligation because of all the blessing we’ve been given to make sure that we’re making an impact in other people’s lives as well. And I think that you’ll see that in these back episodes that we’re filming right now.
Thank you so much to Todd Chrisley for taking the time to chat with us! We really appreciate it.
