Well My Dad Told Me, One Day Son
Jim Avett Quotes:
If it's good, people will listen," "And if it's not, we'll sit on the front porch and entertain ourselves.
"You've got one life to live, "If you're not where you want to be, do something about it."
"The whole point of writing music is to touch people,"The point isn't money or fame. It's getting the message out there and touching people."
People say to me you must be so proud of them. I’m no more proud of them when they make music than when they’re making hay of the cows. if they’d never been musicians we wouldn’t love them any less.
“It was always important not to stifle the children’s creativity, which we may have overdone,”
“I’m proud because they still help me with the hay,” Avett says. “We still square-bale, which is very labor-intensive. Sometimes they miss it because they’re on the road so much, and they feel bad about it. But it’s something to be proud of. When you’ve loaded up a barn for the winter, it looks good and smells good. Nothing better than that.”
""Family is the only thing that lasts. All others pass."
