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?

Sweeeeeeeeet

Sunrise or sunset?

Sunset. If I see a sunrise, it’s only because I stayed up all night.
