I got an offer in 1992 to buy a major-league team. I turned down the offer because I don't want my love of the game to involve business.

Some suggestions for you :

As a kid, before I could play music, I remember baseball being the one thing that could always make me happy.

The most important days, more than any Grammy award thing or anything, is the day that you're responsible for snacks after the game.

I wouldn't mind producing a movie with a music storyline, but acting in one is too close to home.

It's the sweetest thing to be a parent of a daughter. When they hit their twenties, they become these lovebugs that come back. It's just so sweet.

I love being a part of country music. I love going out and... doing things for the first time for country music. I always enjoy that.

I don't think it's changed that much when you go on the principle if Garth introduced more rock into country music, then Florida Georgia Line's gonna introduce more dance and more beat-driven stuff into country music. That's just how it's gonna go. So whatever influences you as a kid, you're gonna put in your music.

The dads across the soccer field looked at me as a dad just like them. And I was very grateful.

I can take the steel guitars and fiddles off, we can make it a little more pop, cover ideas that are a little less cowboy. But you got to look at yourself in the mirror and ask, whose flag you are under? For Garth Brooks, I'm steel, fiddles, red, white and blue.

I like to follow my favorite team and talk sports with my band or fans. You won't believe how many musicians are sports fans. We have so much time on tour that we need these outlets for relaxation.

Don't change a thing. That's one of the best gimmicks a band could ever come up with.

I'm much too young to feel this damn old.

No matter what you say you might do, you never really know until you're in the moment. Every situation is so different.

We're just a real dirty band. We're raw, and we're rough. None of us are top-scale, top-line musicians. But I tell you what, you get your top-line musicians and see if they can entertain like us.

I'm one of those guys who has to have a constant something going inside and in front of my face. If not, I get in trouble.
