The country heartthrob chatted with Out at the New York edition of the 2024 GLAAD Media Awards.

This ain't Texas.

Over the weekend, Orville Peck attended the New York edition of the 2024 GLAAD Media Awards and was honored with the prestigious Vito Russo Award for pushing boundaries in the country genre as a queer singer.

On the red carpet, Out caught up with Peck and asked the country star what he's been excited about as of late.

"I'm just happy to get back on tour," he replied. "I can't wait to get back on tour. I'm so excited."

Peck continued: "I've been touring since I was 18 years old, so that's a long time, you know? Like, for those that can do the math on their own, it's a very long time… and this is the longest I've gone without doing that. I had to do it to take a break for my health, but I'm so ready to get back on the road. I'm so galvanized with a new spirit and a new energy. Just so excited about it."

Through their friendship, Orville Peck and Trixie Mattel are a match made in queer country heaven. So, following the release of his duets album Stampede: Vol. 1, we asked Peck if there could be another collaboration between the two of them on the way. "There's all sorts of surprises in the works," he responded. "I won't say anything." Well, WE ARE SAT.

Peck has continued to push boundaries and break barriers in the country genre over the years, so it felt very correct for him to be honored with this year's Vito Russo Award. When asked what it meant for him to be honored by GLAAD, Peck explained:

"It's an incredible honor. I mean, truly. I feel like it's me being sort of a role model to anybody, or someone that people find encouragement in. It's something I never thought I would be or set out to do with what I do, but it's become the most cherished part of my career, to be honest. I feel very, very honored. And, yeah, very humbled and lovely about it."

Lastly, we couldn't let our Queer Country King leave without finding out which song on Beyoncé's Cowboy Carter album he'd like to be featured in if the opportunity presented itself.

"Oh, I think 'YA YA,'" Peck answered. Dear BeyHive, can we PLEASE make this happen?!

A trailblazer, a wonderful soul, and an incredibly talented artist. Orville Peck, the MAN that you are! We can't wait to see the barriers you break next.

Orville Peck's Stampede: Vol. 1 is available on all music streaming platforms.
