I do appreciate every single dollar I earn.
I'm an outdoors girl - I like to go fishing, riding four-wheelers, hunting.
A lot of people tell me, once they get to know me, that they're surprised that I'm nothing like they think I'll be.
I kicked the door open, and I'm gonna hold my leg in there. I'm keeping the door open for all these amazing female singer-songwriters that are coming out.
After trying Atkins and doing Nutrisystem a few times, now I'm just focused on maintaining a healthy lifestyle rather than dieting.
I'd love to get played on the radio, but it just doesn't happen.
I'm a lifetime member of the NRA.
I started writing songs at 17.
I really feel every word to every song a lot more than I have in the past.
My parents are private investigators for God's sake.
In a way, I had such a normal life. But in another way, I saw things most kids don't see.
If you don't stand for something, how can anyone respect what you do?
You have a career, and you start as a business person. And you work your way, you reach this peak, and you know the time's going to come when you go back down.
Yeah, I have a tough-girl image.
I can reach the mass audience if I come from different perspectives on every song.
I do write a lot from personal experience, but I also embellish a bit.
It's OK to have a little bit of curve.
I'm married to my best friend!
I sucked in school.
My family is awesome.
Right now it seems like the girls are drawing more attention to country music.
