“Surround yourself with good people.  Whether they’re the best or not, people are capable of learning if they’ve got good hearts and they’re good souls.”

“At the end of the day, you’ve got to like the people you work with.  You can’t go through life at any point, especially at this point, where you don’t want to be around people and don’t enjoy their company.  We can all make money and be successful and take care of our families together and have a good time doing it.”

“When I was making my first record there would be something that would come out that would inspire you, you know?  You’d see someone on TV or on the radio.”

“I really believe it’s the old cliché, the more you give the more you receive.  I’m living proof of that.”

“I think what I’ve learned out of this lifetime is you should be proud of where you come from.”

“I didn’t come from a trailer park.  I grew up middle class and my dad had money and my mom made my lunch.  I got a car when I was sixteen.  I’m proud of that.”

“I love to be pushed so I can prove myself, because once again, I will.”

“I know a lot of people who are struggling musicians; it’s a hard life, and I’ve risked being that.  The rewards are tremendous now that I’ve made it, I thank God every day.  But I put it all on the line for it.”

“I’m a bit of an insomniac.  I’m always thinking.  I’ve got a lot of ideas for lyrics and shows.  I have a notepad by the side of the bed and voice recorders around the house.”

“I’ve just really been into melody and lyrics and songwriting.  Writing a rap, to me, is easy.  I could write a rap like that.  But writing songs and melodies and sh*t that’s hopefully going to stick around for 30, 40 years is f*cking hard.  If you have good songs and you’re talented, people will eventually come to your shows, people will buy your music.”

“My son is a great kid and does super well in school.  I couldn’t be prouder of him.  What I tell him is, ‘You don’t want to just be known for being the son of a rich rock ‘n’ roll star.’  I’ve seen a lot of kids like that.  I want him to be happy, work hard, and create his own thing.  I tell him, ‘You’re not gonna be one of these kids up on stage playing with me.  If you wanna have hits – write your own.  Then we can play together.'”

“I could care less about what people think.  I’m a devil without a cause.”

“It’s not that I’m Mr. Goody-Two-Shoes now, but I’ve got my priorities in order.”

“I’m just figuring out what really makes me happy and I’d rather have land and things of this nature and maybe some cool cars and my plane of course and stuff like that… and really not have any worries.  You don’t have to worry if things are gonna go south.  If that trailer burns down or blows off the mountain… order another one, it’ll be here in two weeks.”

“Go where you’re celebrated, not tolerated.”

“I’m thankful that I proved myself in music which is my first love, my first passion.”
