Thanks for talking with us Sam. First of all, could you point to another Sam who's more country than you?
And who's another non-country singer who's still more country than you?
What's your advice to people who say that genre distinctions don't matter but still call you country?
And what should be done to your entire discography?
Most country stars say they're inspired by Strait or Dolly or Waylon or somebody like that. Who's your inspiration?
Were you better at football than you are at selling pop music as country music?
And finally, what state of mind would someone have to be in to think they truly understand the history of country music and yet still believe you're country?
