All I ever intended was to make a living at what I do. Everything I've achieved since then is above and beyond.
I feel sexy when I get out of the tub - your skin is fresh and you've put up your hair without looking.
I don't want my body to be a distraction from my talent or my brain.
It's important to give it all you have while you have the chance.
If it does stand out [my clothing], then I guess it's a compliment, but I just wear whatever feels comfortable.
I find that the very things that I get criticized for, which is usually being different and just doing my own thing and just being original, is the very thing that's making me successful.
You've got a way with me. Somehow you got me to believe in everything that I could be. I've gotta say, you've really got a way. You've got a way it seems. You gave me faith to find my dreams. You'll never know just what that means. Can't you see, you've got a way with me.
I'm not going to be somebody who wants to hold on to my fame for the rest of my life.
My goal is to appeal to as many people as I can. I'm not looking to leave country, but I do want to have more international success.
I really feel like life will dictate itself. You should allow it to unfold as naturally as possible. Just go with the flow. When you're really desperate, you say a few prayers and hope for the best. That's the way I've always lived my life.
Country music is still your grandpa's music, but it's also your daughter's music. It's getting bigger and better all the time and I'm glad to be a part of it.
I'm never at my best on television. There's a row of cameras between you and the audience, and it's very weird, very confusing.
Writing is very much a playground; an artistic playground. It's the most fun thing I do.
Yes, you can lose somebody overnight, yes, your whole life can be turned upside down. Life is short. It can come and go like a feather in the wind.
Later in my life, I'm going to look back and smile and be very fulfilled. I know that if I don't give it my all right now I'll regret it later. That's very important to me, because I've worked all my life to have this.
