That is not in this for the long time -- of resolves them now let's talk about this -- have you been watching the charts.
Well I you know you can have a watch -- -- have one doing what it and what did that -- has been doing and that.
And we've had some slow movers in the past and so this was really cool to see it.
Rock hard of the of the -- he has and of course the song a woman like you off of the sophomore album hard to love it we can bring it up on screen there -- sell software album let's talk about what you were doing going from all the ones album to what did you learn in between what -- you -- to do differently or repeat the same.
Well the first album.
Just took so long to make all different changes and all kind of stuff happens and being overlooked a five year time in my life which you know he changes a person.
What's cool about this album is.
I made it over a year so it's a snapshot of who I Yemen who have become in this last year my life and it's a very.
Just -- to live album means so and musically we did try some other stuff and -- excited to -- things.
And I he said that it is personal so -- is inspiring you now we've seen well.
Let's talk about kind of like I said that they got -- I've become and the reason I've become this -- I've got engaged -- available -- and you know -- you grow up things change and and -- things become.
Other things become important to you parties and so that shows up -- -- And now you are songwriter I used songwriter first you can get yourself songwriter before -- must.
I write songs out -- song 'cause I needed songs -- -- none of the kids it was one thing to me singing and song right and let.
And Nashville all worked hard to have both and I just -- have success is -- writer first set some tells people think I'm a songwriter first and an artist.
But do you love those songs just -- -- even if somebody else is the one thing it I mean.
I should I do I do I mean it's hard out love them quite as much as they're not quite your babies but I mean that I have to connect with a song.
Very deeply to to -- -- you know if I didn't -- I've got to you know everything's going to be right about a -- is that you have a deep connection with -- -- and and it it works.
And let's just -- some of the names that you've written for it's quite amazing including Garth Brooks and what it -- Garth Brooks Tim McGraw Kenny Chesney Blake -- in -- and obviously Eli young -- that was it isn't it for them crazy girl.
Yeah that's -- that's a long time ago with my friend now -- rose and just so proud to be a part of what they deserve it and we're -- a long time and some -- try to be a part of that with them.
Completely and -- what he liked it to have Garth Brooks senior some I don't know that moment for well how many hours a huge cigar fan I mean he was one of my biggest inspirations as a child as a kid a child trying to -- into adulthood and and to write a song and he heard it I got a phone call from and and I got to meet in that the number one priority this song did all kind of crazy stuff.
He's an amazing person it was an amazing experience sometimes -- even if it happened or not economies like.
And another is another story -- -- headlines recently.
On thank goodness everyone's okay with -- what happened with this tour bus fire.
Well couple to a bus fires I was in my -- I woke up one day in and not based there was -- -- the -- and and it was smoking in an analyst and when he put planes and then.
Couple weeks later I was on my -- here Lehman's books literally and I saw what I saw Omar buses to get off he's not -- The trust me and then his exploded five minutes later so.
It was wow you know we let you know we kind of you know laugh world fires but it was it could've been a very serious thing where we were fortunate.
The -- yeah and -- well let's talk about it geared toward you saw it is important that thought on FOX & Friends well hey you -- everything like that well.
-- they do we Hillary got another tour bus that the company did -- citizen I don't quickly but I -- so -- it was pretty much room and they had to get a dollar down to the bare bones and reduce I'm sure we'll see it would be an improvement.
Yeah but I know anything about yeah yeah.
Nowhere is that -- that's taking Neil how are you caring for your summer for a season -- -- everywhere you know all over the place and -- will hit.
This summer would hit.
You know a lot of fears -- and in a lot of shows like guys and and and honestly we never stop never stop we'll just because they're everywhere so you just check out only -- dot com and I'm on twitters you know it's trying to get in all that stuff and guess it just check this out as you know we're at.
And do you have kids take a little extra preparation when it's summer touring season I mean you guys easily figure out at the fairs and festivals really hot out there and you're going nine.
You got so how does an artist have to prepare well.
And I just we just jump -- -- -- that's the kind of down hallways and in Soviets and as a rough for the first couple shows it's a 110 degrees on the stage.
But you get pretty used to pretty quick and -- just hold on time and again how many games of the -- hurry up there I mean it's an average of you know.
200 -- -- shows you know we've done every year and in traveling a lot more days of I'll just some home probably fifty days a year.
As a married man idea that night I hit a couple of hopefully it that's overdue and as you'd have to get to a certain point you can do less shows and that you know out of it 300 shows a year.
75 shows you're -- that's your ultimate goal you wanna be able to still play music but I have to be gone all the time without the on this mobile and on this Sarah so.
So I can't wait for that income.
I'm quarries and it will what here you are writing about and singing about changing think as a married man as a father he had already -- who have been on the Salomon and I'm sure we'll continue to because.
