My life revolves around music and always will. I need to be a part of music and not an observer.
Country and western is the music of the devil. That's the real truth of the matter. My late Mother, bless her, loved country and western. God, I couldn't handle it.
The studio is not the place to write. You need to be 75% ready when you go into the studio, and then the music can develop to the next stage.
