I've lived big. I've laughed big. I've hurt big. I've been hurt big. I've loved big. That's just the way I choose to do it, because I remember what it was like to be afraid. I remember what it was like to be worried about, "What about this? What about that?" And it's funny because I was really terrified about things I could lose, be they relationships or situations, etc. I was so afraid about losing things that I lost them.
Then it's like, okay, now what? Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep going. There really is no option. There is no option. If you're going to live, then you might as well live to the best of your ability, whatever that is.
With a lot of faith and a lot of imagination, you can really work wonders. - Fred
I think I've written one song in my entire life where I had a dream with the vocals and lyrics and then I woke up and then wrote the music under it.
But that was one time. The rest of the time it has always started with a guitar riff that I think is fun. - Matt

I truly believe it's the energy of joy, the energy of faith, and the energy of expression that makes things better, that allows you to feel those emotions, that allows you to get to that place. It's called a leap of faith. You have to take that leap of faith. - Fred

A Cowboy Mouth show is basically all about celebration. It’s like what I call a rock and roll safe place. Whatever’s bothering you, whatever’s bringing you down, you should let that crap go. - Fred
