I love it. I'd do it again any time, and I'm sure we'll do it for other records. It was awesome. We met cool people and got some really good songs out of it.
is always sold-out, and it's always a lot of fun. There's always something different.
Our sound is a combination of a lot of influences
Don is our George Martin
I'm hoping the backlash is over. We've been going through that for the past eight years.
We wanted to have our own nice, small label that has respect in the industry. We're really looking forward to the ride with them.
If one of our faces wasn't there, we'd probably quit.
It was such a blur. All we saw was that the shows were getting bigger. It's like people say, a lot of it is a timing thing. We came out at the right time.

Dave LaChapelle talked me into it, ... I thought it was going to be no big deal, probably not too many people would see it. Then I was having a party during the Daytona 500, and it was the first commercial on it. I told my wife, 'Honey, I think I'm in trouble.'
Remember the Stax label and how if you liked one record, you liked all the others as well? You don't talk to a lot of people who tell you how much they love their record label. I don't care how many records they sell.
We got to do a few things with President Clinton. To be invited to Washington again to play with Ashanti and all those other cool people there in front of President Bush and the rest of the world feels awesome. I'm really looking forward to going.
We went to church every Sunday. When I was a kid, the only time I sang was around my family.
When I was growing up, I always knew that if I ever got anything, I was going to give back as much as I can. I learned that all you have to be willing to do is give your time.
We raised almost 2 million dollars at the last golf tournament that can be used for minority scholarships and Junior Golf programs. The payoff for the work we do is so much more valuable than the work we actually do for it.
