The older you are, I think you realize what you enjoy and what you don't need, what wears you out and what's important.

A country song is a song about life.

There's no hall of fame for that working class hero, no statue carved out of stone. And his greatest reward is the love of a woman and his children.

I don't like politics, hypocrites, folks with poodles.

To me, songwriting is the backbone of Nashville. Looks can go, fads can go, but a good song lasts forever.

I'm usually just enjoying life.

Pour me something tall and strong, make it a Hurricane before I go insane. It's only half past twelve but I don't care, it's 5 O'clock somewhere.

If you can last until you're 40 years old, hopefully you'll be mature enough to figure out the rest of the years. (Meaning)

Flesh is weak, but love is strong.

Tonight I'm the designated drinker.

Love is stolen in the shadows of the night. Though it's wrong all along, it keeps going on as long as they keep it out of sight.

You just write about things that happen.

I'm hooked on my baby's love, there ain't nothing in the jug this strong.

"After 17" is a song I wrote when my first daughter went to college, so that's kind of where I'm at in that part of my life. If you listen to that song and knew anything about me, you'd say, "Oh yeah, he wrote that about his daughter," but I try not to write them that they are so specific that they wouldn't apply to anybody that has a child.

I've always stood up for country music.

I grew up with nothing, so whenever I got to where I could have something I felt like I needed to have everything I couldn't have when I was young.

You think about people like Hank Williams, who stood on that spot of wood, and Mr. Acuff, and, of course, George Jones. And just about anybody you can think of who has made country music has been on that stage. That's what makes you so nervous - to think about the historical part of the Opry and how it's played such a part in country music.

Making music is still what keeps a fire going on in me.

I like to write sad songs. They're much easier to write and you get a lot more emotion into them. But people don't want to hear them as much. And radio definitely doesn't; they want that positive, uptempo thing.

I think if you retire from touring, then people think you are retired.

Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke risin' against that blue sky? Did you shout out in anger, in fear of your neighbor or did you just sit down and cry?..

I've had to live with women all my life. I grew up with four older sisters, and I was the baby and the only boy.

Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day?

I love your cooking, honey, but sometimes I need some real food.
