Dale Wallace: My favorite song is "I'll Die Tryin'". It is one of a very few songs that gets me every time. The hair on my arms stands up when I hear the first chorus. It's always amazing.
David Pichette: We have a great mix of musical tastes. We have a little bit of traditional country like Merle Haggard, and then we swing over to some Guns 'N Roses. So I would call it, maybe country rock of some sort.
Mike Melancon: Recording and touring is the best because we love to play. We have the best jobs!
Brad Manes (after being asked what it takes to be a country star): Dedication, support, and a goal!
Dale Wallace: You've got to hit a nerve in people. Keep it simple. There are plenty simple number ones I wish I had written.
Brad Manes: One of the things that drives us is our curiosity about how big this dream can get. My dad was a singer, so he sparked me to sing.
Mike Melancon: I love to sleep late, see a movie, check out the local mall and go to a great restaurant.
Patrick Bourque: I would love to be able to stop people from downloading music on the internet.
David Pichette: I think our songs have a great amount of influence over our audience. It's always great to see hundreds or even thousands of people singing the words to our music.
Brad Manes: As a singer, my job is to interpret the songs, and make people feel something when I sing them.
