“I grew up in the North Georgia mountains loving fishing and chasing deer during hunting season because that’s what I loved to do (and still do today). Everybody should take a trip to north Georgia; you gotta see it for yourself. Living in north Georgia definitely shaped my songwriting. I grew up in a small town with a large loving family and strict but loving parents. They wanted to make sure we did the right things, but also taught us how to love. Not just each other but to be good to the common everyday man.”

So, in a sense, I think that’s why I’m so connected to my fans. They see that I genuinely care that they took time out of their busy schedules to help me or attend a show.
