As part of HGV Ultimate Access*, one of Hilton Grand Vacations' newest programs, Lee brings his well-known showmanship and easy-going energy directly to Members and Guests for the ultimate vacation experience.

At a recent HGV Live! show at Hard Rock Live Orlando, Lee gave us his celebrity travel tips, the scoop on traveling with kids and what makes HGV Live! shows special.

HGV: What's your go-to packing style?

LB: I have to admit, I throw it in the bag no matter where it's at, and I stuff it in. And then I deal with it when I get to the next place.

HGV: What's your travel routine for long-haul flights? 

LB: You just gotta time everything out correctly between some sleeping aids, movies and dinner. Then, you can get to Australia and feel like you just took a regular flight.

HGV: What's in your carry-on bag?

LB: Everything. My whole life is in my carry-on bag. Honestly, I always have to double-check that there's no knife or something in there. You know, I carry around a pocket knife with me all of the time and had a few “awkward” situations with TSA in the past.

HGV: You're on the road so much. When you travel for fun, how would you describe your travel style? 

LB: When I'm traveling for fun, my travel style is whatever my wife says. Sometimes she thinks it's really fun to drive and have a long road trip. I try to steer away from that if I can. 

HGV: So, do you generally like to sit by the pool and relax? Or do you plan a bunch of activities for the kids?

LB: So when I travel for fun, if we've got the kids, we try to plan a fishing trip or some little activities and stay busy. But I like to sit down and stay busy. Sometimes you need a vacation from your vacation because you're kind of worn out.

HGV: What do you look for in a vacation? 

LB: The service and people's attitude who are helping and preparing everything always means the most. We even try to carry ourselves like that on the road. Just treat people well. 

HGV: Tell us about your all-time favorite destination and why you love it. 

LB: Other than going home to South Carolina to see my mom at her house, which was like a vacation, I love going to Cabo Azul Resort. I can't even remember how many times we've been. It's my family's go-to place. Even though there are so many other places we've been to, Cabo Azul is everything you can ask for. 

HGV: If you could travel to Hawaii, Colorado or Europe, which would you choose and why? 

LB: Hawaii is wonderful. Colorado is amazing, but I have to say Europe because I haven't been there yet. I haven't gone and seen all the things over there yet. So that's next on my list.

HGV: Describe your pre-show routine. 

LB: My pre-show routine is just making sure we got the songs down on the list right so that I can just change 'em on the spot. We might have one little toast right before we go on stage. We're a great band together — a family. So, we get to hang out a little bit before the show. That's all we need. 

HGV: Let's talk about HGV Live! 

LB: We've had many cool times playing these shows and just hanging out with folks. My favorite part about these shows is that it's not the same show I do every night. We've had moments where I kick the whole band off and have a drummer do a drum solo at this sit-down event. So, it's just fun. We play it by ear, and it's fun for us as artists to get up there and just improvise. That's what the music's all about.
