You win the fight by fighting.
It’s OK if Tim McGraw goes and does a movie, and it’s OK if Justin Timberlake does a movie, but it’s not OK for an actor to become a singer. I never understood that.
When you’re playing country music, you have to tell the truth.
For the first five years of music and first five years of acting, I don’t remember it because I was running to where I was going. Finally, I was like, ‘Man, I missed everything.’ So I just stopped, and I started looking around.
I have long hair because I’m an American Indian. I’m an Oklahoma boy, and I’m very proud of my heritage.
Jimmy Fallon is one of the funniest son of a guns I’ve ever seen.
I owe my whole acting career to the fact that I’m a singer. I went out to Los Angeles and auditioned for a TV show called ‘Fame L.A.’ The original role was for a comedian, but they said I wasn’t very funny, so they asked me, ‘What else can you do?’ So I played a singer.
When I’m writing songs, I write visually. When I’m writing the words down and I listen to the melody and the lyrics, I start seeing the video form. And if I can get through a song and from the beginning to the end have the whole video in my mind, I think that’s a great song.
I grew up a wrestler; for a long time in Oklahoma, I was a wrestler.

I get paid to lie to people as an actor. Country music is the one area that I don’t lie. I tell the truth.
Football is my base; that’s where I learned to be tough. I was a strong safety, and that’s what I do: I hit people. The mentality is football, the wrestling is precision.
I get up every day and work, regardless of if I have a job or not.
My favorite actor is Steve McQueen, and he did his own stunts.
I got my first acting role because I was a singer.
I grew up with action movies in my head.
In the entertainment business, the biggest gift you could ever get is not an Oscar, it’s not a Grammy, it’s longevity.
I don’t know if I could write songs if it wasn’t for the female race, to be honest with you.
