Simple & True

"The first time I got on stage, I forgot about all my problems. We were the opening act at a rodeo, and nobody was there. Only about ten people were in the crowd, and almost all of them were employees. I was so nervous that my hands were shaking. But it was the first time that I’d felt the feeling of playing my own music in front of a crowd, and I’ve been addicted to that feeling ever since."

"I sometimes wonder what would have happened if my mom hadn’t died. I was always with her, and I always followed what she said. So I think that if she was still around I probably wouldn’t have gotten expelled from school. Dad spent all his time at work, so we were like two total strangers after she died. He’d try to reprimand me without knowing who I was or how I felt. He’d tell me to put down the guitar and quit wasting my time. And he’d never show any sadness about Mom. He thought he was being strong but he wasn’t helping us or him. By not crying, all he did was make us feel more alone."
