What’s the best concert you’ve ever attended?
I hate music. But back when I didn’t, I saw Doc Watson at a rainy bluegrass festival down in Virginia Beach. A hurricane was pounding the east coast, and I stood at the foot of the stage mesmerized.
How many unread emails or texts currently fill your inbox?
Zip. Zero. Keep it clean, I say. My office, my farm truck, my van: all total wrecks, but my inbox is pristine!
How many pillows do you sleep with?
We didn’t have pillows growing up, we used a rock. But now I use two. I’ve gotten soft in my old age.
How many pairs of shoes do you own?
I am the Imelda Marcos of Americana … you wouldn’t know it. They’re all boots.
If you were going to buy a famous musician’s pair of dirty socks off of eBay, whose would you buy?
Suzi Quatro’s. But I wouldn’t buy them. I’d just sneak into her house and get them. Not because I’m creepy. But because I’m cheap.
What’s your favorite vegetable?
I don’t eat vegetables. I raise beef cattle.
Fate or free will?
Fate. And we are all doomed.
Sweet or sour?
Sunrise or sunset?
Sunset. If I see a sunrise, it’s only because I stayed up all night.
