Quarantine Q+A: Jillian Jacqueline

Ever wonder what your favorite Smokeout artists get up to in quarantine? We asked rising country-pop star Jillian Jacqueline a few questions to hold you over until you see her at Windy City Smokeout 2021:

WCS: What are you looking forward to most about Smokeout in 2021?

JJ: Getting back to the beautiful city of Chicago!

WCS: Quarantine drink of choice?

JJ: Old Fashioned (has to have the good cherries in it, though).

WCS: What are you grilling this summer?

JJ: Steak! A good steak can cure a lot of things.

WCS: Ribs or wings?

JJ: Wings. Ribs require a bib.

WCS: Are you working on new music?

JJ: Yes. Very excited to get to share it as soon as I can.

WCS: What are you listening to these days?

JJ: HAIM, Caitlyn Smith, Kenny Rogers, The Beatles, Mary Chapin Carpenter, new Brett Eldredge, the list goes on.

WCS: How do you stay busy in quarantine?

JJ: Writing songs, painting my back deck, reading all the books I’ve been meaning to read for years now.

WCS: What other artists are you excited to see at Smokeout next year?

JJ: Hailey Whitters and Lainey Wilson. Both great artists and talented songwriters.

WCS: How will you celebrate Smokeout weekend at home?

JJ: Definitely listening to the playlist.

WCS: You can only choose one. BBQ or Beer?

JJ: That’s a nearly impossible choice, but I guess I’d have to say beer.
