Mac: Do you know Kurt Wagner [of Lambchop]? He lives in Nashville. At one point he gave himself this project where he had to write a song everyday for a year I think. I don’t know if he actually wrote 365 songs in a row, but you know, he could. Anyway I’ve used that idea before especially once we had kids and my time was so much more limited for me to just mess around. It became much more like “If you have 3 hours you have to get something done.” I think I still have that mindset, if there’s a night I can set aside [to write], I will try to finish a song by the end of the night. Because if I leave the studio and I don’t have anything recorded, then it’s like I’ve wasted all that time. Even if its something I don’t go back to, it’s something. So a lot of these songs were written like that, just sitting down starting to write maybe with one line already in mind but no music — or with nothing in mind.
