“To make it in this business, you either have to be first, great or different. And I was the first to ever go into Nashville, singin’ it like the women lived it.”


“The country is making a big mistake not teaching kids to cook and raise a garden and build fires.”

“You’ve got to continue to grow, or you’re just like last night’s cornbread – stale and dry.”
