Stone said his mom, "a no-filter, Southern belle former hairdresser" pulls no punches with him - promising to "jerk a knot in my hair" when he gets out of line.
Stone still has a foot in television, serving as a judge on Cozi-TV show, "The Next Great Family Band."
"For me it's exciting to be a judge," Stone said. The show's concept is to find bands composed of family members - think Allman Brothers or the Osmond Family.
"But I really love being out on the road," Stone said. As for the thought of doing more television acting, he says that's on hold for now.
"I was just talking to my agent about a few things. If I can find the time, I love acting. But at the end of the day, when you're trying to get your music career to a certain level, you've got to put in the time with it."Contact writer Monica Orosz at mon...@dailymail.com or 304-348-4830.
