“I’m still writing music and still recording but I really got hungry for acting again,” says Reeves, who earned CMA and ACM nominations as half of the popular duo Blue County. “I’ve always had a great respect for GH so I kinda courted them. It was the one show I most wanted to be on. Steve Burton [who plays mobster Jason Morgan] and I are best friends – we’re literally like brothers – and I just love the people over there. My agent put out feelers and [GH casting director] Mark Teschner called back. They had a role. The timing was perfect.”
