What’s your favorite word?
I’ve been told I say “dope” a lot, unironically.
What’s your best physical attribute?
I’m proud to say I’ve come to like all of it, but recently I’ve grown quite fond of my butt. I never used to think twice about it.
Which is your favorite Revival — Creedence Clearwater, Dustbowl, Elephant, Jamestown, New Grass, Tent, or -ists?
Banjo, mando, or dobro?
Are you more a thinking or feeling type?
Urban or rural?
I’m a pretty even balance of both. Can’t have one without the other.
