As far as throwing stuff, I don’t think I could tolerate that. Hopefully I’m quick enough to dodge. Yeah. Anything now, but you know soft goods I’m used to having thrown, but nothing solid.

We got to talk about the 17th studio album you put together. How do you even keep yourself motivated to make music at this point? I haven’t done anything 17 times!

Tim McGraw
Anything 17 times? Nothing?

Tetris Kelly
Nothing.

Actually, it seems like there’s been more because I’ve been doing it for 30 years, I guess a little over 30 years. It seems like there’s more albums out there. If you count all the greatest hits.

Tim McGraw
What usually happens is when I get ready to do a project, I sort of had these ideas of the kinds of music and kind of messages I want to sing about, kind of sonically what I want the record to sound like. So I’ll start writing songs with the themes that I want. And I’ll finish a song and I think ‘This is pretty good. This is kind of what I wanted to say.’ So I might cut this one. And then sure enough, like Tom Douglas, or Lori McKenna, or the Warren Brothers will send me a song. And it’s saying what I was trying to say, but way better, so then my song goes into the bin. And so I made one song on the album that I wrote, which song was that “Nashville, CA/L.A. Tennessee.”
