What was the first record you ever bought with your own money?
Let's be real: I think it was Alanis Morissette or Soul Asylum.

How many unread emails or texts currently fill your inbox? 
Maybe two or three, but usually I try to see how long I can go without looking.

If your life were a movie, which songs would be on the soundtrack?
A bunch of English folk music for the mornings and then, by noon, you have Sir Douglas Quintet. All the big action-packed scenes have Willie Nelson and Jessi Colter. In the movie, there's a club I go to every night. It's always exactly the same — the doorman and the bartender say the same things to me every night. There are rolled-up hand towels in the bathroom and sweet perfumes in the air. Sonic's Rendezvous Band plays there every night. Sometimes they'll play in the backyard, though, and that's when it goes down …

What's your favorite word?
No no no … as soon as I think of a word to say I've already heard it too many times and it has to go to the back of the line.

Which sisters are your favorite — Andrews, Secret, McCrary, or Mandrell?
McCrary, such great voices and they have style.

If you were a liquor, what would you be?
Jethro T. Boots whiskey this month, unfortunately. 

Fate or free will?
This feels like a loaded question …

Cake or pie?
Pie — pumpkin, cherry, blueberry, chocolate, banana cream …

Sunrise or sunset?
