Country fans and country listeners deserve to have something better... a song that really has something to say, something that makes you feel something.

We're not just going to take some songs from a focus group in Nashville where people are sitting around in a circle having appointments trying to write catchy songs so they can sell them to a band like us.

There are still artists that do a great job with a song, and they care about the lyrics, and it's not just mindless drivel.

I just hope everybody stays with us. We are not trying to be snobs or jerks. We are in a whirlwind trying to figure out the best way to be accessible.

Our music has been an incredible gift to help us make a difference.

To be a Southern Ground artist, you have to be a lifer. It's not about winning a karaoke contest or a television show to become famous. It's about really paying your dues. It's people I'm fans of and want to help in the business.

We can help show data on how much the kids can improve when their home life changes a little bit.

Thanks so much to all the fans. To all our team, to all our wives, especially, that believe in us and that we come home to, and everybody here that's given us a shot.

I'm no different than any other human being. I play music for a living, and we're very blessed.

Talent alone gets you nowhere. You really have to have the grit, and you gotta have a love for people.

I was a music fan first way before I started creating it, so I still get giddy when I get to be around people that I respect so much.

You can de-select the songs that you don't want to have on the record, but I hope we always put something out that has a lot of songs that the majority of people will love.

I always thought it was sad that you couldn't get anything really good to eat at concerts, so we sit down with our fans before every show and eat a gourmet meal that we made for them.

We bled writing these songs, we bled in the studio, and now we're out bleeding getting them right live.

We're fabricating a state-of-the-art concessions system for our touring, so we can feed the people and give them everything they need without having to wait on it.

Other people pull off amazing festivals and events and things like that. I think ours is a little bit different, and that's what makes us distinct.

The lyrics are so important to me. And that there is something going on in the lyrics. That the song actually has something to say.

I remember the first time I heard 'The Thunder Rolls.' It was dark, and we were driving to the beach. There was the thunder outside and the thunder in the song. It was eerie.

We love our fans and are very connected with our fans.

When we cover a Chainsmokers song in our live show with ZBB, people are dancing and going crazy.

It's always humbling, knowing where we came from. From being friends with the janitor in the bar and being friends with the waitress - because they were some of the only people that were listening when we finished playing - to this, we are able to appreciate every single person and every single piece of it, because we came from nothing to this.

A lot of concerts leave you wanting for something good to eat or drink while you're there.

When songs make me wanna throw up, it makes me ashamed to even be in the same genre as those songs.

Family comes out whenever we know it's gonna be steady on a run that's continuous.

If you break down most rock songs and look at the lyrics on a piece of paper, it's all about melody. It's all about presentation. And a lot of bands are really great, but you can't understand a word of what they say.

It does make me sad that there's a lot of great songs out there, and they're not going to see the light of day because they're competing with these tailgate songs.

I don't like cooking just for myself; I enjoy feeding other people, particularly outdoors.

I don't want to look back and say, 'Yeah, I was really successful, but I failed at fatherhood because I wasn't there.'

Everybody in my family cooks, so growing up and being around it... if I was going to spend time with everybody, it was helping them in the kitchen.

I don't think a lot of bands and artists work as hard as we do on the creation, on the writing, the arrangements and the recording in our format.

Camp Southern Ground is a lot more than a camp. It's more of a campus.

I've got a couple of Harleys and a couple of Ducatis.

I want to get better every year.

It's important that people come see our show, because we are performers. We wanted people to see that.

There are still great artists in the country format.

It's an honor to live on a legacy, getting to do what we love to do and try to be the best musicians that we can possibly be.

'A Pirate Looks at 40,' we had to do that song. I've been covering that forever.

I have seen a lot of people, including myself, make a lot of tip money because of 'Black Water,' so this is a full circle moment. To collaborate and recreate this iconic song is just an amazing moment as an artist.

I've been making some more electronic music, which I really enjoy doing.

Good music makes you feel something.

We're all continuing to grow up and get better as musicians, and the chemistry as a band continues to deepen.

The world needs some help.

We're proud to be lifetime musicians and a band that lives like a band and loves the music and gives our lives to it.

Getting to have a higher purpose other than just being successful is very necessary for me.

In my opinion - in Georgia, there's a town called Lula. And Lula, Georgia, has the best peaches.

I have an outdoor kitchen at home in Georgia, and I try to never eat inside.

When you're wearing a motorcycle helmet, people don't know who you are. So I just wander around and, yeah, it's pretty awesome.

We're really blessed that we've been as well received as we have been.

We ended up New Year's Eve playin' a show. My date had stood me up, and I remember walkin' back to my friends with, like, two minutes before midnight and thinkin', 'I'm not gonna have anybody to kiss on New Year's.' And there she was, standin' right there, and I remember kissin' her, and then that was game over.
