    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I was six years old when I learned to play the guitar, and only because I had been trying to learn to play the French horn. I came home one day, and my parents had taken the horn away because they said it was too painful. I highly recommend Taylor guitars. They practically play themselves.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Even though my songs may sound very personal, to me most of them are fiction. It is a great way for me to be able to live a fantasy life as a writer because I get to be someone else, someplace else for three and a half minutes, just like the listener.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I think that a lot of women are made to feel that they have not done the one thing that they were put on the earth to do if they didn't do the normal thing, if they didn't take the most travelled path. And it's unfortunate.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Personally speaking, I think that being a folk song writer, which I am, comes with a responsibility to reflect on the social times you are living in, ... That's just what I did in my latest release, Hearts in Mind.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Keith's niece was doing makeup for the movie and invited me to the set. I fell in love with 'Our Very Own,' which comes out this fall, ... I told Keith I wanted to write a song for the movie. We got together in L.A. and in 20 minutes, it was done. I think 'Our Very Own' makes a great closer to 'Hearts in Mind.' The movie is set in the mid-1970s in Shelbyville, Tennessee during a massive depression that spread throughout rural America. It is a lovely study of that culture in that time. The words of the song say it all.”
