The best part about being alone is that you really don't have to answer to anybody. You do what you want.
Every relationship I've been in, I've overwhelmed the girl. They just can't handle all the love.
The many sounds of Memphis shaped my early musical career and continue to be an inspiration to this day.
I train in the mornings, and I'll eat two breakfasts. I'll have waffles with flax seed and almond butter and one egg scrambled. Then I'll work out and have a second breakfast - another egg or a protein shake. Within a half-hour to 40 minutes after a workout, that's when you want to load up on protein.
What makes most people comfortable is some sort of sense of nostalgia. I grew up in a small town, and I could count my friends on one hand, and I still live that way. I think I'll die in a small town. When I can't move my bones around a stage any more, you'll find me living in a place that's spread out and rural and spacious.
As time goes by people will see who I am for who I am.
I'm completely removed from any hype that comes my way.
I feel very fortunate to be compared to somebody so incredible. Michael Jackson's an icon.
I'm a perfectionist. I can't help it, I get really upset with myself if I fail in the least.
If you put out 150 percent, then you can always expect 100 percent back. That's what I was always told as a kid, and It's worked for me so far!
The worst thing about being famous is the invasion of your privacy.
The thing is that my idols have always been the types of guys who could do anything: Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Sinatra, Dean Martin; and when you look up to people like that, you don't accept that you need to be compartmentalised.
The most boring thing in the world? Silence.
If there were something that I was going to endorse, it would probably be something like sneakers.
I don't see myself as someone who's ever going to be defined by one moment. It's on to the next.
My teenage years were exactly what they were supposed to be. Everybody has their own path. It's laid out for you. It's just up to you to walk it.
I pick my nose and I'm not ashamed to admit it. If there's a bogey then just pick it, man.
Gossip is called gossip because it's not always the truth.
That's something I learned from both my stepdad and my grandfather - that there is a thing called chivalry, and it doesn't have to die with the birth of the Internet. The way I see it, if you're asking a girl out on a date, it's only right to do it in a way that she can hear your voice.
I really didn't try to make an effort to make urban music, but I am a product of my inspirations.
