“‘I’m actually sitting in my studio, which is in my house, and so I’m able to do sessions for different people. And I’ve been really fortunate that I’ve had a ton of work, and I’m busy every day doing sessions, which is awesome, ’cause I love doing that.
“I love playing on other people’s stuff; I love writing with different people. My buddy John Corabi is coming up from Nashville in a few days, and we’re gonna work on some stuff together.”
