I love home. I'll stay up there for days on end, I won't even go down the driveway to look for the mail.
My dad was vehemently opposed to electric guitars. He did not look on that kind of music as legitimate in any way.
It seems like bluegrass people have more great stories to tell than other musicians.
I love to rock 'n roll. But my finest suit, of all the things I do, is as a songwriter.
I love to laugh, it's my main thing. I love to abuse the English language.
I love the subtlety and tonal range of the acoustic guitar.
My upbringing made me think that real legitimate music is written, not heard.
I had never done TV. I think it's a foolish medium for, most rock 'n roll music. Nobody ever comes off well on TV.
My life is as an artist, not an entertainer. I don't consider myself an entertainer, but I can do that thing when I want to.
I may quit the music business someday, but never the music.
You're successful if you can get one person to pick it up and put it on the turntable and go, Wow, thanks for writing that!
Strats are my favorite electric guitars, and I've got quite a collection.
Now is the only thing that exists.
My grandfather gave me my first guitar, an old acoustic with palm trees and dancing girls painted on it.
MTV didn't call. I guess I wasn't hip and groovy enough.
It was so much fun playing simple American bluegrass. I got to meet Doc Watson.
It was quite a shot in the head to do the album and then have it shot down by nonmusical idiots.
I wish I was a little more gregarious and outgoing.
I was blessed with a gift. It's a gift and a curse. It never ends.
I wanted to pay tribute to my musical influences: Buffalo Springfield, Lightfoot, the Beatles, the Hollies.
