Luke Pell isn’t harboring any, er, thorny feelings toward ex JoJo Fletcher.
In fact, at the September 23 iHeart Music Festival in Las Vegas, the singer-songwriter, 32, had a very undramatic reunion with The Bachelorette star, 25, and her fiancé, Jordan Rodgers, who also vied for her heart on season 12 of the ABC reality dating series. (Refresher: Fletcher broke Pell’s heart and sent him packing after his hometown date in Texas.)
“It was good to see everyone and come full circle,” Pell exclusively tells Us Weekly. “It’s interesting to have that chance to bury the hatchet, wish each other the best and talk about everyone’s plans for the future.”
In Sin City, he also caught up with fellow alums Robby Hayes and Chase McNary. “You’ve been through the same experience,” says the single Nashville-based stud. “Everyone goes their own direction moving forward and it’s interesting to hear the different stories of how people’s lives are changing and what they’re up to now.”
These days, Pell is spending quality time in the studio recording his debut album, which is set for a January 2017 release.
“A lot of artists write about past relationships and current ones. You write about the good and the bad and the ugly as a way to paint of picture of what happened,” he tells Us. “You’re a storyteller at the end of the day. So, absolutely, there will be some of that about JoJo in my writing.”
But you’ll have to listen closely for the subtle clues. “People will pick up on it because they’ve seen what happened in reality, but I don’t say her name,” the Army vet reveals. “They’ll be able to draw connections from what the music is saying. But I try not to go too cliché. I don’t have a rose song!”
