my influences have been singer/songwriters and I feel my identity as a singer and performer has always been best defined through my songwriting".

namechecks Shaver, who told him "Son, I know just how you feel," before he remembers what record companies remarked about his work—"You long haired redneck sonsabitches are not wanted
here in Nashville, Tennessee."
