"When you grow up in Memphis, you have a desire to play and sing, like so many others from here. I started out 35 years ago, performing at Libertyland, an amusement park Memphis used to have. I live in Nashville now, but I'm back here a lot. To those who are just breaking into the music business, I'd say: 'Do it because you love it, not because you expect to make a lot of money. And remember, you're not doing it just for yourself. There's a lot of give and take.'"
