I know that I always wanted things. I was always proud of my people, proud of my home, but I always wanted more. I think most people do.
I think country music is popular - has been popular and will always be popular because I think a lot of real people singing about a lot of real stuff about real people. And it's simple enough for people to understand it. And we kind of roll with the punches.
I do remember how it was to be poor. I do remember that in my early years, we had to grow and raise all of our food, even our animals. And I remember in my early life, we didn't even have electricity. So it was very, very hard times then.
We're all just a bunch of sinners, but we do the best we can.
