Q&A

WHAT’S THE FIRST CONCERT YOU EVER ATTENDED?

T.G. Sheppard and Jerry Lee Lewis in Leslie, Ga. I was probably 5, but Jerry Lee Lewis playing piano is burned into my brain.

FIRST ALBUM YOU EVER BOUGHT?

Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and I loved it. Everybody in the U.S. had to be moonwalking!

SONG THAT COULD BE THE SOUNDTRACK TO YOUR LIFE?

“Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound.” Well, no, not the hell-bound part-that’s a little scary. Make it “A Country Boy Can Survive.”

YOUR I-DON’T-CARE WHO’S-WATCHING, ROCK-OUT-IN-THE-CAR SONG?

“Bad Romance,” Lady Gaga. I don’t care what anybody says.

SONG CURRENTLY STUCK IN YOUR HEAD?

“Someday, I’ll be living in a big ol’ city …” Taylor Swift‘s “Mean.” I love that melody.

DREAM DUET PARTNER?

Jennifer Nettles. We’d sing something we wrote together.

SONG YOU’D BE HAPPY TO NEVER SING AGAIN?

“Sweet Home Alabama.” I covered that for 20 years!
