“It's what we're torn between, isn't it? Bitching and moaning and complaining about this life, and, yet, not wanting to give it up for anybody, or anything.”
“I'm grateful when anybody can start to have his or her limited perception of the genre open up a little bit. There's a lot of great music in the country genre that doesn't get heard because people say, 'Well, I don't like country.'”
“I feel more comfortable now with or without a guitar. It used to be much more like Linus and his security blanket, definitely.”
