We always say we sound like Skynard, because we like Skynard. The truth is we donât sound like any band I know. What people like about this record is the variety of sound. Track 1 makes you think youâre going to hear some irreverent bluegrass, but by the end youâre not sure whether you bought a honky-tonk record or a rock record. I hear other bands, and I admire the writer because all 12 songs in their set sound great, but it is the same song with 12 different sets of lyrics. Sometimes my thought is âwow he really knows who he is as a writerâ. People who like us are not that type of listener. They like that the songs vary as much as they do.
To me music is the tune and the message. Iâve tried to capture both in my writing. When I think about the song, my first consideration is how is it going to feel. The answer to that depends on what Iâm looking for musically at the time. Sometimes I want to just write rockers, because Iâm bored and feel the need to drive fast. Sometimes I want to write songs that make people want to dance, so honky-tonk songs come out, and during times of introspection I usually write ballads.
The term ballad is deceptive, because it denotes âlove songâ, which I have not written a lot of. My ballads are drinkin or cheatin songs usually. I donât know why, as I'm deeply religious personally. Iâm in love, and have known love, but in my writing it usually does not come throughâ¦especially on this record. Maybe on the next album...stay tuned.
During a set break once, and old man approached me off-stage, put his arm around me and said, âson, are you okâ? I cracked up, because I knew he had been paying special attention to the lyrics of the songs. The answer I gave, laughing, was âyes sir, Iâm fineâ. The lyrics are personal for sure, and they speak for themselves. I donât like to talk about them too much, because thatâs the point â I express those thoughts and emotions through song. Each song has a specific meaning or relevance. I donât write to impress or self-indulge. The words have real meaning to me as a writer, and I see that they resonate with listeners because truth always makes a real connection.
For much the same reason, I admire Dwight Yoakam. Listening to him I always feel better, because no matter how bad things get for me, they canât ever be worse than whatever DY song is on. A writer once said about an album of his: âin this record Dwight has shown us new ways to hurtâ. Iâve always thought that was cool, and itâs a line in This Is Love. So whether Iâm feeling Bill Monroe, Elvis, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, The Allman Brothers, Hank Williams Sr. and Jr., The Marshal Tucker Band, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, BB King, George Jones, Bad Finger, Peter Frampton, Lynard Skynard, Eagles, Journey, Stix, Rush, The Ramones, Metallica, Bon Jovi, Dwight Yoakam, The Mavericks, Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Kid Rock, Montgomery Gentry, or Big and Richâ¦I promise youâll get the truth.
