Jason Aldean is actually probably a really good rapper. He sounds like it to me.

I've only had one platinum album, and it's 'Red River Blue'.

When you start dating another country star, the first question is, 'When are y'all gonna do a duet?' And what sucks about that is people expect you to do it whether you want to or not.

One of my all-time favorite country singers is a guy named Conway Twitty.

When things go wrong or don't turn out the way you pictured them in your head, you just have to go with the best intentions defense. I have a lot of good intentions.

My fans, country radio, friends, family, you name it - they know I love to perform.

The Doobie Brothers' 'What a Fool Believes' makes me want to move. And I still haven't gotten over the Macarena. Who has?

Nobody's gonna beat Taylor Swift in a fan-voted thing. And nobody should, by the way.

I get the same feeling walking into the Opry House as I do when I see one of my heroes.

I hate pigs. I hate goats.

I still love farming and gardening and things like that in the summertime.

I love getting the pontoon boat out, and I don't get to do it as much anymore. If I know in two weeks or a month from now I've got three days off, I can start planning for that stuff, getting out there with friends and family and relaxing, just floating around and hanging out.

I didn't grow up playing video games. I grew up catching crawdads in the creek and minnows and lizards and snakes.

Learning to not be selfish is what has changed in me the most since being married.

When I think about the songs I might record, I ask myself, 'Can I picture anybody I know back home sitting in their truck cranking this up?'

There's something actually more intimidating about playing a small, intimate room. Your mistakes are that much more under the microscope.

Even if it's your wedding, if you're a guy, it's boring.

I had so much fun playing songs from 'Based On A True Story...' and getting to see the crowd's reaction to those songs was unforgettable.

I never really saw myself doing a Super Bowl promo.

Shoot, man, I love everybody! I don't have time to hate.

Every day, somebody has a song they want you to hear, and you're stupid if you don't listen to it because you never know what you may find.

I would not want to be Richard Simmons... right now or anytime. He seems like a nice guy, but if I had to dress like that? That would absolutely suck.

I like California but I'm dyed-in-the-wool Oklahoma. I see a deer in L.A., and everybody's standing around it taking pictures. Back home, that's the enemy!

For the life of me, I'll never understand how you can be an artist but not want people to understand who you are as a person.

In country music, one of the ways we may have gone wrong in the past is trying to be politically correct all the time.

I can't say that I've ever actually got on a horse and roped a cow, no.

I do know a good singer when I hear one.

Sitcoms, I always figured that would be an easy gig, but man, it is not.

I stand by the stuff I say, even the really stupid stuff. I'll find a way to justify it.

What I do is what I like; if I'm not as famous as I'd like to be, I've done it to myself.

I've spent a lifetime in love with country music.

I talked to Carolyn Dawn Johnson about doing a duet with her a few times, and we just haven't gotten it done.

I love to deer hunt and fish and drive down the back roads in my truck. All those things basically equal freedom to me - and not having to return that message or call from my record company or management. At some point, I need to recharge.

The Grand Ole Opry is an artist, and I am proud to be one of its songs.

I lost my brother in a car wreck when I was 14 years old. When I decided I wanted to be a country singer, my dad always told me, 'Son, you should write a song about your brother.'

I'm not the kind of person who thrives in 'the scene.'

As a country singer, there is only one place you dream of playing in your lifetime, and that is the Grand Ole Opry House.

Because of Twitter, I think people know most every single thing about me. I don't know if there's anything that would surprise people about me.

I've driven in L.A. probably three times. I'm a slug in L.A.

We were playing a fair, and a few people were handing me stuffed animals and flowers, but one person handed me a paper sack. So I took all the stuff back to the bus. I put the sack in my lap and opened it, and a live iguana jumped out of the sack and onto my shirt. I screamed like a little girl!

The way my family always did Christmas was on Christmas Eve, it wasn't really centered around a dinner on Christmas Eve. It was more about keeping the kids calm. Sometime after dark is when we were going to open all the presents underneath the tree from Mom, Dad and the kids and everything - just the family presents was every Christmas Eve.

I've never played it safe on my own music.

I get on Twitter, one of my routines during the day, if I'm home is, I wake up, get a cup of coffee, turn on the Weather Channel and I'll look at what people are saying to me on Twitter on my phone.

If there's one thing special about me, it's that I seem familiar. People feel like I live next door.

My life has been an open book, for better or for worse.

I'm good at anything that's country - biscuits, gravy, chicken-fried steak. Look at me, for God's sake. I cook what I like to eat.

I got a job working at a publishing company, Balmur Music, which was a company that Anne Murray was a co-owner in, as a tape copy guy. Eventually, I got fired from that job.

No, I don't think I'm ever going to get serious.

One of my pet peeves about Nashville is that it tends to be copycatted. I don't want to do that. I've got to be different.
