Being with my family is very important to me, and touring is very important to me, too, because it's who I am. It's what I do.

Country seems to be finding a bigger audience. Certainly an audience out of the general country scene is finding me.

Getting on the bus and touring was my life. And when that was not around, I felt myself a bit lost at times, because that was all I had.

I tend to write better when I'm not touring.

Once we get into the groove, we're kind of like long-distance runners - that adrenalin kicks in for me and I just keep running - and I don't stop!

Sometimes I just cry at random stuff!

The world is getting so reality-driven these days. It seems to be accelerating exponentially. But it's a dangerous game for a lot of people.

They're mostly done before we went into the studio, although I do like writing in the studio.

You go through life experiences. Each record captures a different turning point in my life.

A song like 'Once in a Lifetime' is inspired by my marriage - it's a good, life-changing happening in my life. I think when you find your once-in-a-lifetime love, that's what everybody's looking for.
