"I try to have a normal life and look at things in a normal way, under very abnormal circumstances. That’s always going to be my main goal, that’s always what I’m going to strive for, to be a normal human being. It’s interesting because you’re put in really abnormal situations. You have an abnormal-size microscope covering your life and everything you do. You look at the idea of being 22, that’s when you’re supposed to be out there living and being selfish and making mistakes and messing up. If I mess up once, it’s a headline everywhere.”
I think love is fearless.
I love country music and I love the fact that it’s been accepted all over the world. That is so exciting for me. I have heros that have taken country music internationally. You have Garth Brooks and Shania Twain and they really did a lot for country music because they brought an awareness to it. The fact that I have the opportunity to do that too and go to other countries that I’ve never been before and play music, it’s what I’ve always dreamed of doing.
