I donâ€™t drink to get drunk. Thatâ€™s just not cute.
If something happens to me, you're going to hear about it. I only know how to write songs about my life.
So many girls come up and say to me, 'I have never listened to country music in my life. I didn't even know my town had a country-music station. Then I got your record, and now I'm obsessed.' That's the coolest compliment to me.
Once upon a time, I believe it was a Tuesday when I caught your eye, we got onto something, I hold on to the night. You looked me in the eye and told me you loved me. Were you just kidding, cuz it seems to me, this thing is breaking down we almost never speak. I don't feel welcome anymore. Baby what
You can never forget the people who were always there for you from the beginning.
And, honestly, if somebody wants to criticize me for not being a trainwreck, that's fine with me!
A few years have gone and come around when we were sittin' at our favorite spot in town and you looked at me, got down on one knee. Take me back to the time when we walked down the aisle; the whole town came and our mammas cried. And you said "I do.", and I did, too. Take me home where we met so man
I look out at the stadiums full of people and see them all knowing the words to songs I wrote. And curling their hair! I remember straightening my hair because I wanted to be like everybody else, and now the fact that anybody would emulate what I do? It's just funny. And wonderful.
Be good to people. Be good to every single person you come into contact with. My best friends are great musicians. But more than that, they're great people.
Never believe anyone who tells you that you don't deserve what you want.
Time will break all of the old habits and create new ones for you, and in the process, you will try to handle this immense pain with dignity (because you're that kind of girl). You actually will have to move on and you actually will be fine and that's when he may actually miss how incredible and spe
You can draw inspiration from anything. If you're a good storyteller, you can take a dirty look somebody gives you, or if a guy you used to have flirtations with starts dating a new girl, or somebody you're casually talking to says something that makes you so mad - you can create an entire scenario
I didn't have friends. No one talked to me. I used to go to the Wyndcroft School (nationally recognized for academic excellence) in Pottstown, and when I moved to Wyomissing, I didn't know anybody.
In high school, I used to think it was like sooooo cool if a guy had an awesome car. Now none of that matters. These days I look for character and honesty and trust.
I think allowing yourself to cry on the bathroom floor is FEARLESS.
I've made sure that in any situation and with any record label, I'm allowed to write my own music.
I think Kenny Chesney or Garth Brooks would be the coolest duet partners. I look up to them so much for their work ethics.
When you are missing someone, time seems to move slower, and when I'm falling in love with someone, time seems to be moving faster.
You can make a board for all the goals you want in your life with the pictures on it, and that's great, daydreaming is wonderful, but you can never plan your future.
I'm not opposed to falling in love
(Talks about Lucky You) "The song was about a girl who didn't fit in and she didn't care and she was different than everyone else. I think there's a long chorus of me singing "Do do do do do do do do do do". It's very young and I look back and it's kind of interesting to hear those kind of storyline
Katie Couric is one of my favorite people.
Happiness isn't a constant. You get fleeting glimpses. You have to fight for those moments, but they make it all worth it.
You will always be criticized and teased and bullied for things that make you different, but usually those things will be what set you apart. The things that set you apart from the pack, the things that you once thought were your weaknesses will someday become your strengths.
Vanity can apply to both insecurity and egotism.
Nashville is my home, and the reason why I get to do what I love.
If you are lucky enough to find something that you love, and you have a shot at being good at it, don't stop, don't put it down.
Thatâ€™s always the hardest thing when someone completely has you fooled so much, that you think theyâ€™re just never going to hurt you, then they do. Thatâ€™s when you get the worst heartbreak.
You have to believe in love stories and prince charming and that eventually you'll find your own happily ever after.
Living alone, you can do so many fantastic things Iâ€™ve learned. You can like, walk around and have so many conversations with yourself and sing your thoughts. I think Iâ€™m the only one that does thatâ€¦
