He made a name for himself in the ’80s as one of the decade’s biggest chart-toppers, but these days you’re more likely to find Huey Lewis tending to his 200-hectare property in Missoula, Mont., or fly-fishing.
That’s according to a new MuchMoreMusic reality show called “Where You At, Baby?” which catches up with old hitmakers to see what they’ve been up to since ruling the radio. (Remember the radio?)
Lewis appears in the first episode Tuesday, welcoming show host Matt Wells at the Missoula airport, taking him to a grocery store, making him dinner and going fly-fishing.
The affable Lewis, who gamely reminisces about his past but offers no shocking revelations, says he had no qualms about welcoming a Canadian TV crew into his home.
“I think the Canadians do a better job at this sort of stuff – they’re a little smarter and little more loftier than they are here in the States – and so I thought, why not?” Lewis says by phone from New York where he was performing with his band, the News.
Lewis adds, though, that he has yet to see the episode.
“You’ve got to enter these things with good faith, anyways. If they’re going to chew me up, they’re going to chew me up.”
