Trey Pearson: Coming Out, Being a LGBT Artist, & the Love is Love EP

Joining us this week out of Ohio is singer/songwriter Trey Pearson. With his band Everyday Sunday, Trey Pearson has sold hundreds of thousands of records, and amassed millions of streams. He has scored 5 #1 U.S. singles and 20 Top 10 hits. His song “Wake Up! Wake Up!” was the most-played Christian rock song of 2007, and his 2009 album, “Best Night of Our Lives,” broke onto the coveted Billboard 200 chart. Trey has toured in all 50 states and 20 countries, playing with musicians such as Switchfoot and Relient K.

Recently Trey came out as gay, and made national news. His announcement started a national conversation with a television appearance on The View. It has been covered by The New York Times, Billboard Magazine, CNN and more, as he became the most trending topic worldwide on Facebook. His first solo EP “Love Is Love” was just released, and in this interview we hear more about that, Trey’s experience of coming out as a LGBTQ musician, and more.
