What was the first record you ever bought with your own money?
With my own money … New Grass Revival, Friday Night In America
If money were no object, where would you live and what would you do?
I'd probably want to move back to Alaska for part of the year to fish and hunt and be in the epic beauty of that place. Maybe live in Hawaii and spend lots of time with a Hawaiian sling and mask, snorkel and fins. Living island-style.
If your life were a movie, which songs would be on the soundtrack?
There'd have to be too many to mention. Songs from the Highwaymen to Tower of Power to Ray Charles to Stevie Wonder, Little Milton, Garth Brooks, Merle Haggard, George Strait, New Grass Revival, Flatt and Scruggs, and Bill Monroe.
What brand of jeans do you wear?
Whichever ones fit! I usually have to try on a number of pants before I find the right fit. Recently, I found some in Target. But, in years past, I would wear Wranglers and Carhartt.
What's your go-to karaoke tune?
Don't have one, but if I did, I'd love to sing some Adele.
What's your favorite season?
Kimmel or Fallon?
Jason Isbell or Sturgill Simpson?
Can I say both?
Chocolate or vanilla?
Depends on my mood. If I need some comfort, I'm on the chocolate
