I was born poor and without religion, under a happy sky, feeling harmony, not hostility, in nature. I began not by feeling torn, but in plenitude.
I've never been all that interested or aware of what people are thinking about me or saying about me. I think that has kept me safest and sanest.
When I first moved to New York, I was still returning to Tennessee every few months to perform.
