And if the audience is moving in that direction, you have to move with them. I'm perfectly capable of doing that; I did it for 15 years before I got a record deal, so I'm having a blast writing these new songs.

My co-writer and myself were talking about the whole thing, and he just stood up and said, 'It makes you want to just look these people in the eye and say, 'Have you forgotten?' ... I got chills all over my body because I knew that was the title of the song that we were going to write that day.

It's amazing what the soldiers are doing to help the Afghan people.
