Disney Channel star Bridgit Mendler is currently sharing her music with fans on the road and she recently sat down with us to discuss the excitement of headlining her first U.S. tour!
The Good Luck Charlie actress said she was really looking forward to kicking off this year's full-fledged tour after only getting to do a few smaller shows last summer. "I think the audience enjoys it -- hopefully. You know, an hour for me seems like a long time. So I'm like, oh, I hope I can be entertaining for a full hour," she joked during the interview at Cambio Studios. "But it's been really fun and it feels like a party. And now it's really cool to see people singing along to the words of the songs."
The singer/songwriter -- who is enjoying the success of her second chart-topping single Hurricane off her current album Hello My Name Is... -- said that although going on the road has its challenges, it definitely "feels like family" with her tour mates.
But another professional "family" -- the cast and crew of Good Luck Charlie -- is going to be broken up when the series ends its four-year run next year. "It's been hard. I think just because we all feel so close, and we really enjoy what we do and where we are together," she said about the show's cancellation. "So to say goodbye to that is a bummer. But at the same time, I think we're all so proud of what we've accomplished. And I'm excited to pursue new things and hopefully work more with them in the future."
