From the artist:
"I like to think the different type of landscapes and people I encountered along the way have shaped how I write, why I write, and what I write about. I also draw heavily from my own life's triumphs and failures, peaks and valleys, love and hatred, brightest days and darkest nights. My main influences as a songwriter are Chris Knight, Billy Joe Shaver, Merle Haggard, Ronnie Van Zant, Radney Foster and Robert Earl Keen. If you come to one of my live shows, you'll hear this in my originals and I'm liable to do covers of everyone from George Strait to Jimi Hendrix."
