I've enjoyed all the parts of my career.

Storms make trees take deeper roots.

I was the first woman to burn my bra - it took the fire department four days to put it out.

If I see something sagging bagging or dragging I'll get it nipped tucked or sucked.

I've been around longer than most of my fans have been alive.

I feel that sin and evil are the negative part of you and I think it's like a battery: you've got to have the negative and the positive in order to be a complete person.

I think I became more productive through not having children. I never really had the desire to have them. My husband didn't want them either so it worked out well.

My husband and I had to raise five of my younger brothers and sisters. They lived with us. We sent them to school.

Oh I can spot a phoney a mile away.

Every day I pray about all I do.

I have a big gay and lesbian following and they've been very loyal and kind to me.

I'm not trying to be fashionable. Never was!

I was probably 7 years old when I started playing the guitar and writing some serious songs.

Stop this attitude that older people ain't any good anymore! We're as good as we ever were - if we ever were any good.

I can't tell anybody else how to run their life or their business but I really believe I've got a good bead on myself.

If you talk bad about country music it's like saying bad things about my momma. Them's fightin' words.

I'm not happy all the time and I wouldn't want to be because that would make me a shallow person. But I do try to find the good in everybody.

My life has been very full.

I think I've got my business notions and my sense for that sort of thing from my dad. My dad never had a chance to go to school. He couldn't read and write. But he was so smart. He was just one of those people that could just make the most of anything and everything that he had to work with.

When I'm inspired I get excited because I can't wait to see what I'll come up with next.
