Country musician Billy Strings shared photos of his tricked-out go-kart, which features a personalized design including his summer tour dates.

“New wrap on the buggy!! Let’s go boys!!” Strings captioned the post on his Instagram. The go-kart is blue and green, with both his logo and the tour dates on the hood.

Additionally, fans enjoyed seeing the singer’s new wheels. One commented: “I dig that you’re a car dude too.”

“Are you racing this thing?” wrote another. “I love riding buggies and two tracking but I know you do, too.”

One particularly enthusiastic fan then added: “You guys rule. Supporting grass roots racing, being the greatest jam bluegrass band in the world. If next you accomplish world peace, I would not be surprised!”

Billy Strings Talks Songwriting and Relationships

Additionally, the up and comer discussed his songwriting process in an interview with NPR.

“I still really need to be alone, alone, alone to write,” Strings explained. “I’m so embarrassed. I’m so embarrassed that someone is going to hear me or hear something that I’m working on.”

Apparently, this also extends to his longtime partner, Ally Dale. She acted as his tour manager to get the ball rolling in his career before stepping down to prioritize herself. Moreover, they are happily engaged. Though she’s no longer on the payroll, Strings felt he owes his successes to her support.

“When she joined and jumped in the van, it was that,” he then revealed. “And so she was just like, ‘Ok, I’m stepping in. I’m helping out with merch and this and that.’ It went from a van and five people to 20 people on two or three tour buses. And a couple semi-trucks full of lights and sound equipment.”

Strings also credited Dale for her hard work and dedication to his career: “It’s like, she built this up to that, which is just incredible. So it really just goes to show how capable she is of anything.”
