Lacey Mosley is the vocalist from Flyleaf, a Texas alt-rock band that's gearing up for their second year on Korn's Family Values tour. Kidzworld sat down to chat with the southern rocker about life on the road as a rising rock star.

Sindy: So you're just wrapping up the Justice & Mercy Tour? How are you feeling?
Lacey Mosley: I feel great.

Sindy: What were the highlights of this latest tour?
Lacey Mosley: I guess that we got to play with people we really wanted to play with. Like, there were a couple of bands that got to tour with us that were from our state, and it was really cool to bring them out with us and to watch how well the crowd received them. Also just being on a headlining tour and seeing all the people who come out and really know what you're about. It's great to tour for your own fans, instead of playing for someone else's fans because normally they've maybe heard the single, and really don't know what you're about. This time we had a lot of interaction with our fans that we don't get when we're opening for someone else.

Sindy: So the tour was sponsored by the movie Evan Almighty. What's the connection there?
Lacey Mosley: Well, I'm a big fan of Steve Carell. I think he's just, I don't know, he's real funny, obviously. They sought us out and offered to sponsor our tour in a time when we were about to go into the hole pretty bad because my voice messed up and we had to cancel a bunch of shows. So when they came with the offer to help sponsor the rest of the tour, it helped us a whole lot, so we were really thankful. We've been supporting them, because they've been supporting us.

Sindy: What did you think of the movie?
Lacey Mosley: Actually, I didn't ever see it. I just saw the trailers and read about it. There was so much positive feedback about Evan Almighty from people we really respect.

Sindy: And next you're back on the road with the Family Values Tour?
Lacey Mosley: Yeah, that's right.

Sindy: Are you looking forward to it or are you too tired to think about it?
Lacey Mosley: No, I'm so excited. It's actually a really laidback situation. The people with Korn that do the tours and organize things are so professional and on-the-ball. It's such a relief. All you have to think about is playing. You just get out there, have a good time, play well and the rest of the time you can just enjoy watching bands or hanging out with people. It's one of the most laidback things for us. Touring with Korn is great. They take really good care of the people who are on tour with them.
