Nick Jonas reflected on his offbeat performance at the 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards on Monday’s (May 22) episode of Expert Armchair With Dax Shepard.
Appearing on the podcast with Kevin and Joe Jonas, the youngest member of the Jonas Brothers reflected on the viral moment his guitar solo went horribly wrong during Kelsea Ballerini’s performance of his single “Peter Pan.”
“Then there was another time during a really tragic guitar solo debacle that happened on live TV,” he told host Dax Shepard. “In retrospect, I can kind of laugh at how big I thought it was. But he traveled more than I would have liked, and that pushed me into therapy.
“I’m going out for my thing, I’ve rehearsed it a million times, I feel really confident about it, I don’t even really think about it like it’s something that’s going to be problematic,” continued the singer. “I started off it was good and as I walked towards her I went completely blank and hit a bad note and basically passed out and found it was wrong and that I couldn’t stop.”
The timing of the awards came smack in the middle of the JoBros’ multi-year hiatus before they reunite in 2019, but Nick said that played into the expectations he’s had since then. performance. “To this day and a few hours after unboxing it, I can’t quite figure out exactly what happened,” he said, “but I was rushed to a car and rushed to a plane right after and I looked at my manager and I said, “I think that was bad. I was, like, kinda in shock. Like it was a really traumatic moment that shaped the pressure I put on myself to be perfect and always be active.
