When did you first pick up the guitar and write your first song?
My oldest brother, Dave, taught me three chords on the guitar when I was about 14. He was teaching himself to play fiddle and needed someone to play rhythm for him. I believe I wrote my first songs in that first year after I learned to play.
Tell our readers about the new album. What should we expect?
I had a great time making this record. I got to record at the old RCA Studio A (in Nashville). My producer, Dave Cobb, gave me the very best record I could imagine at this time. It didn’t feel like work at all. I hope the fans can hear in the music that we had a wonderful time making it.
