Jerry Nunn: Hi, Kristin. I was born in Oklahoma like yourself. I suppose many people do not know that you have a Native American background.
Kristin Chenoweth: I think everyone from Oklahoma has some Native American blood! We do know I am part Native. I’m adopted, so it’s hard to know how much! [ Laughs ]
JN: My family later moved to Tennessee and Opryland was my first job. I heard you worked there.
KC: I loved working at Opryland and informed my folks I wouldn’t be heading back to Oklahoma City University to finish school. I was just going to stay in Nashville. They drove from Oklahoma to come pick me up! [ Laughs ] I loved the talent. All of the musicians were “live,” as compared to Disney, where a lot of performers, musicians are “canned.” I worked there after my sophomore year in college that summer.
JN: You are performing with Il Divo this December. Are you singing your Christmas songs?
