And you know. How do you end up one when near what was different about doing a record you yourself and finding you know guys the work with the and stuff. And and to do some of -- I think I think there's a lot less. Like having to worry about standing in your lane because someone may get upset her or anything like that which which happens with playing you know Brothers. Over the years -- that knows what I do keep a year you know I mean. So you know you get the kind of push yourself and your creative limits because you get to fully dive in and do at all. I have guys that you're working with that is there who are just wanna make you happy. And just. My -- fired up their part of -- do what you're doing via our way to do right ahead and write down on the better part red zone good and and they're not concerned about play. You know I want this part is I -- you know stand in on us -- normal it's not a it's it's not an abnormal about a band but it but it's cool to kind of branch off and and have that. -- -- project at this time in my life. You know because I really felt this record. Is exactly what I was supposed to be doing -- my life right now and meaning what meaning well in terms of the you know I wrote my book last year. And and that was really. A big growth process for me and and just get my head screwed on straight in Indian perspective. And that kind of led to this record because I finally had lakes and clarity and perspective and to look back. Honestly. On the last ten years in my life opted usual it was a simpler it's a deal on through times like that going -- you yeah you stop you right. While this -- I warm welcome back kind of feel that way about the last one years. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I don't -- it's a little -- 02 hours are blurred.

And 1993 so that's. 3321. Years years ago dollar when you look at the music industry analogous Texas says they would they want and always think of Kanye West. You know I mean he's he's definitely an artist that says what -- fields and kind of flies by the seat of his pants and you know and I don't have any hate on anybody -- And so I anymore I don't really. Yeah I you know it will the only time I did as -- some -- mouth off when I was drinking and I you know I just problem in yeah and you know made sense back then ran well Miley Cyrus. You know I mean as a father. You know my number one job is to keep my daughter off the -- And and -- and yeah you know and and you know I know he's not helping. You know people from working -- and so from a father's perspective. You know you're like -- Billy Ray you know he's -- pissed off -- he's kind of weird to and -- -- so you you know what Danaher -- wrecking ball. Now realize you know me in my life have these conversations she likes that you talk about like pull MI you know our. You know and but talking about how her boyfriend situation and then she's going to a problem in her -- in the you know and she was just kind of lost and so. You know I get it from that perspective so I try not to the judge but I tell you -- You know that was in the -- coming out of the ground at the awards show electrical bolt -- right now. In my mind -- -- Scott -- is our guest here in the studio in brightness is -- yes hello Kenny. Editor at what's going to just one of Salem huge tree and not. Scotland outlet that stress I came out arms wide open -- and that was torture or child. Yeah was it was. -- you -- -- -- I -- -- if you emotional but my daughter my first daughter was born at that China as well and now. We're not science in the army literally that that we got mark. In every time I hear it Cilic in the connections in my daughter which I don't spend enough time -- but it's been really a wonderful side it's. It's really been something special more than just decided to -- the meaning behind it that I can relate to and I I can feel what you are writing with the Canon. Paper and -- -- as -- say thank you thank you. -- -- -- appreciate this scenario is it possible to be most like proud of one single sign -- -- -- you know I am in a cell is that it. You know that song had the most impact on my life on so many love. You know professionally and behind the scenes is I can relate to exactly what he's saying. Because that's what that song means the media in my relationship with my son Jagger and now my daughter Milan and Daniel. So you know that song definitely. Means a lot to me is Daniel upset that he doesn't have one of the celebrity -- a kid named -- And you know it you know it not yet and now on an idea that. Yeah he's a wild man so you were you writing that and feeling like. Kind of like -- guilty or like -- migrate dad 'cause they drank into the wind and my can -- back in the day when I learned Alan you know I wasn't hadn't progressed into that. Place yet you know just a regular guy who drink Beers and his buddies and and like he -- remind me to expand. Do you know blood. You know I just I just didn't wanna be. Light. The father that I had in my life and so I was expressing. You know my my thoughts about being a father. You know -- -- and what I didn't wanna be like in what way. Didn't wanna pass down and I you know of course all of us as parents we don't want our kids. To make the same mistakes that we made. -- so that's kind of what I expressed in the breach of that song. Especially don't want doesn't give me the same is kind of guy nobody is not a policy details to lay people are hoping that. -- -- -- -- -- So that. Actually put you try really hard to be cool. And are you putting so much effort is being -- -- that come naturally. The puma thing. -- -- -- changing your life I suppose I would say becoming -- and I don't party had a good time tonight for a just as much effort into being a I laid back dude following it well today.
