Quote of the Day

(Thinking about writing my book is) quite intimidating.  [But] I just show up and do my best.  It's like playing the Opry.  I stood on that stage.  I just went "OK, here we go." ... I've been elevated to the point where it's not certain I can pull this off, but I'll do my best.  There's something guiding me, helping me.  You know, I just feel I got those angel wings on my shoulders.  It's just angels around me.  I felt that way when I played the Newport Folk Festival the first time.  There was some sort of something that had me, going "You got this, we got you.  All together."  It's some sort of something strange, no word for it ... I don't know how to explain it except to say, "I'm not alone up there."
