I would so much like young people to have a sense of the gift that they are. Not many of them feel like that.
At times I've got a really big ego. But I'll tell you the best thing about me. I'm some guy's dad; I'm some little gal's dad. When I die, if they say I was Annie's husband and Zachary John and Anna Kate's father, boy, that's enough for me to be remembered by. That's more than enough.

I think the biggest problem in the world is that we have a generation of young people, and maybe two, who don't think it's going to get any better.
My purpose in performing is to communicate the joy I experience in living.
Heck, I'm no Henry Mancini or Michel Legrand. I just play the guitar and write songs.
