I grew up in a small farming town called Concord, outside Charlotte in North Carolina.

The heart of the People, North and South, is for the Union.
My favorite days off on the road are typically nowhere, like Bismarck, North Dakota, and you find yourself in a mall, and you're like, 'This is awesome!'
