Long intros are cool because there's a little bit of anticipation, you know?
My music is about being strong, even in your vulnerability.
I really think that being yourself, being original, being outside the box is starting to be appealing to people.
You have a career, and you start as a business person. And you work your way, you reach this peak, and you know the time's going to come when you go back down.
I like to say what I think, and if it happens to push buttons, sorry.
Heartbreak is good fuel for country songs. And cheating.
Onstage, I don't want to be thinking about my outfit, I want to think about what I'm doing, so I'll try to dress as comfortably as possible.
I was a big shiny, glittery-type person. Now I'm a jeans and T-shirt girl, or I'll wear sun dresses and cowboy boots in the summer. But at first I had to have stylists tell me, 'That's ugly.'
I didn't do that many crazy things.
I wouldn't want to bring a kid into this crazy world right now.
Currently I'm not a crazy ex-girlfriend, but I can't promise I won't be one again.
It's OK to have a little bit of curve.
I've dated all kinds of guys and didn't know who I'd end up with. But I kind of assumed it would be someone more like my dad than not.
One year, I was nominated for entertainer of the year, and I didn't think I deserved it.
After trying Atkins and doing Nutrisystem a few times, now I'm just focused on maintaining a healthy lifestyle rather than dieting.
I think it's awesome to see people of all different ages from all kinds of backgrounds come together for the love of music.
I can reach the mass audience if I come from different perspectives on every song.
I don't mind having a big butt - they're back in style. But I do a lot of squats to make sure my booty's not dragging on the ground.
I do write a lot from personal experience, but I also embellish a bit.
In my everyday life, I'm pretty normal.
