If you were in a high school marching band, which instrument would you want to play?

The snare. It’s all about the groove.

Do your socks always match?

YES.

If you could have a superpower, what would you choose?

Healing.

What’s your go-to road food?

Chipotle. At least you know it’s GMO-free, the meats are almost reasonably raised, and you can’t beat that guac for healthy fat!

Who was the best teacher you ever had — and why?

Steve Duesterbeck. Ninth grade history. At least once a day he would say, “War is hell and people die.”

What’s your favorite TV show?

The Waltons

Boots or sneakers?

Sneakers. I used to be cool. Now I’m comfortable.

Which brothers do you prefer — Avett, Wood, Stanley, Comatose, or Louvin?

Louvin.

Canada or Mexico?

Love ’em both. If I had to choose … Mexico. My father-in-law has a ranch in the mountains outside Gaudalajara.
