After I released 'Jesus, Take the Wheel,' people started saying, Oh, it's kind of risky. You're coming out with a religious song. And I was thinking, Really?

I worry about dying alone, unmarried and childless, because I spent so much time pursuing my career and accumulating degrees.

It is not even close.
