  • “Blue Ain’t Your Color” winning the CMA Award for Single of the Year
  • debuting his new single, “Female,” at the CMA Awards
  • hearing “Female” for the first time on Oct. 11, one day after it was written by Ross Copperman, Shane McAnally and Nicolle Galyon
  • recording “Female” on Oct. 31
  • the importance of a song like “Female” in 2017
  • working on his upcoming 10th studio album, which will drop in 2018
  • the importance of taking his time while making new albums
  • bringing the album to life the way he hears it in his head: “audio-lize”
  • turning 50 years old in October
  • touring hard in 2018
  • celebrating Thanksgiving with his wife, daughters and mom
  • relaxing over the upcoming holidays

Quote Worthy:

  • “I had an immediate reaction to ‘Female’—as a father of two daughters, as a husband, as a son, it just resonated with me. I went and grabbed my acoustic guitar and started playing it right away.”
