The best compliment I ever had is, one day I was in Nashville, some disc jockey said, Hey, that sounds like a Tom T. Hall song. Up until then there hadn't been any such thing.
I'm from Tennessee. My mom lives in Nashville. I'm born and bred country. That's all I listen to.
Nashville is my home, and the reason why I get to do what I love.
It used to be that Nashville would work to develop promising artists.
Nashville used to have more integrity than just looking at the bottom line.
I'm the 'Scandal'-'Nashville' kind of TV watcher.
Country artists, I met a lot of them when I was five, six years old. I had an uncle who was a country and western singer and I met Lefty Frizzell when I was five or six years old in those shows that would come through Toronto from Nashville.
I should be the one to say what I do. It's just not done that way anymore in Nashville, and I can't do it the other way. That's how our record label came about.
I've always been a big fan of Nashville, and I have friends that live there.
I went to L.A. to be Brad Pitt; now I just want to be Gene Hackman. I came to Nashville to be Kenny Chesney. I'd be very fortunate to be George Strait.
There's nothing like Nashville for making records.
If you can't play guitar and sing in Nashville, you might as well just be a construction worker.
Nashville has a great creative atmosphere. It's a small, close-knit music community that you can't find anywhere else.
There is definitely that thing here a little where people are like 'Oh that Broadway girl has come to Nashville' and I'm like 'Listen you guys, I was singing country before I even got a Broadway show. And I'm from Kentucky.'
