The great thing about albums is it gives you a lot of choices, and we can all say that the album business is dead, but watch Taylor Swift. I don't think it's dead. I just think we've got to hit on the energies that make people want to collect albums.

Some suggestions for you :

I wrote 'The River' practically trying to rip off every lick that James Taylor had, so it was neat to hear him sing those lyrics because that's who inspired you to write them.

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

It's funny how a chubby kid can just be having fun, and people call it entertainment!

Country music is what is sincere; that's the main thing.

If you're true to yourself, you just do what you do.

Any time I'm in a moving thing, like an airplane, I'm usually asleep before we even get on our way.

Because of the changes in the Padres team I played with last year, I felt like a veteran recently when I worked out with Jason Kendall and he told me he's liked listening to my records since he was a kid!

Sometimes I thank God... for cheeseburgers.

Music should always be first.

I wouldn't trade a thing. Even the troubles that I had. I have become the husband and mate to my wife that I have because of what I went through, including the bad times. I wouldn't trade that.

The greatest conflicts are not between two people but between one person and himself.

I don't know of too many double Christmas albums, so it is something that's new, and hopefully will be fun, and there's plenty of stuff out there to cut.

What I love about 'Midnight Train' is that it's a song about a journey, but the music actually takes you on that journey. It feels like you're moving through the whole song.

I am the last guy that wants to quit making music.
