I like people who are loyal to me, and I like to be loyal, too.
I'm a country singer. I love all kinds of music, but country is where my loyalty lies. That's just me and what I do, and I'm not going to change it.
You know, traditional country music is something that's going to be around forever.
You don't have to be a cheater to sing a cheatin' song, that's what I'm saying.
I want to reach the point where people hear my name and immediately think of real country music.
I'm just not going to tour. One point I want to get across to everybody is that I'm still going to make records and I may still do some events. It's not the last time I'm onstage. It's been a part of my life for too long to quit everything. I have done it since the '80s, and I think it's time now to maybe see if I can live without that part.
