The job of singing is to stay open to the river of soul in all its manifestations, the dark and the light, without letting your ego get in the way. I never want to be bigger than the song. I just want you to receive it.
In a song, you have to have a lyric that gives us new ideas on how to live, a lyric that makes us feel, and a melody that gives you some kind of body response and emotional response.
I think if you come straight on honest as much as you can, eventually that turns into success. Maybe not as quick as you'd like.
I've always wanted to be accepted by country music fans - without lying.
To this day, I'm not as interested in music as people think. I'm more interested in how close we can get through the music.
Writing is not getting any easier or harder. I think I know what I want more, I know what I'm looking for.
