Look at all the angles while we've learned and we've learned. It went out. Mean my god I got to college again when you live a few risks julliard tiger because you've been party UN talking about a. Our whole goal is to make sure that you are soaking wet with sweat your ears are ringing you got a slight headache. And Ali wanted to who's going to reform or shot to ground. And again. Nearly Johns has got himself a lot of one of John's famous awkward compliments recess something that's policy problem and it can be taken the wrong way. This is. It's not.

Young country fans who who not only love what's going on right now but they know all the classics too because they grew up planet it's just a really diehard country area here and most people would never expect that when you say San Diego. You know it's San Diego is known for a lot of banks and I think California. Is not only get that the beach going on four but there is always been. A classic appreciation the country music. That's come out of that area yeah. Great artists that came from the west skirts too so are you know we've always targeted incorporated a bit of classic listen. And the songs that news songs that we write that we try to take that classic net and slam it up against what we believe the future of country music is also went. Maybe. You know let's put a little little round and you hear those familiar but that always take it someplace self and boy I sure feel like we've done that it again on on this album was some of these songs on here don't get that Wal-Mart stores out there.
