Hick Hop Music had a chance to talk Christmas with Upchurch. We learned something interesting he always found in his stocking on that magical morning, his most memorable present growing up and more!
HHM: What is one Christmas tradition you have?
Upchurch: The only family tradition my family and i really have, if you would call it a tradition, is all being together under the same roof for Christmas Eve and Christmas. Our Christmas isn’t so much about materialistic things, but more so noticing that family is the best present in the world and we’re glad for every minute we get to spend with each other while we are here.
HHM: Think back to your childhood, it’s Christmas morning, who’s up first?
Upchurch: Me! I would never sleep. I was always setting up boobie traps to catch Santa Clause!
HHM: What is one toy you can remember receiving that made your whole life?
Upchurch: I got a pellet gun one year and I’ll never forget it because me and my cousins all got one and we shot a lot of my Grandfathers chickens. We got into a lot of trouble!
