HARD-CORE COUNTRY ROOTS

The way I look at it, somebody has got to look out for country music, for its history, for its roots. I figure that somebody might as well be me.

PALMETTO TREE AND CRESCENT MOON TATTOO

That's the South Carolina state flag. I got it back in my motorcycle days. You know, everybody I rode with had tattoos. So I thought, "Well, I need to get one." But I always thought, "If I'm going to get one, I want something I will be proud of." You know, I ain't ashamed to walk in church with my shirt sleeves rolled up...something Mom won't mind.

YOU CAN NEVER GO BACK

You know that old sayin' "You can never go back?" That's hogwash. I don't think there's a door behind me that's closed, and if (fame) dried up tomorrow, I could ... still run a tractor, a crawler, a dump truck, and I could still fly an airplane. And I could still write a song. You can go back -- you've just gotta want to.

POSITIVE ASPECTS OF WEIGHT TRAINING

I think my weight-training proved to me more than anything that I can do anything in life if I really put my mind to it. I saw me bring myself from 137 pounds to 175 pounds over a seven-year period. That alone said to me that all you have to do is really stick with something, and you can accomplish anything you want. It's brought me great self-esteem because I know I did it. I changed me.

BEFORE THE FLAT TOP

I have a high energy show so I wear clothes that fit that format. I always wear my jeans and a T-shirt, and I usually wear a jacket that looks like something my hero Hank Sr. might have worn -- but with an updated look.

I think my hair is high maintenance. Of course, I think anything more than a flat top is high maintenance!
