  • ANNIE AND KELLY.
  • THEY'LL BE TRAVELING WITH ME ALL THIS YEAR EVERYWHERE I GO.
  • I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS FIRST GETTING STARTED TRAVELING AND
  • SINGING.
  • I NEVER DREAMED ONE DAY I'D BE ♪ ON BROADWAY. ♪ ♪
  • I SANG IN INDEPENDENT, FUNDAMENTAL BAPTIST CHURCHES.
  • THAT'S WHAT I WAS RAISED IN, AND THAT'S ALL THAT KNEW ME:
  • INDEPENDENT, FUNDAMENTAL, BIBLE-BELIEVING, BIBLE-BANGING,
  • FOOT-STOMPING, SOUL-WINNING, DOOR-KNOCKING, PEW-JUMPING,
  • DEVIL-CHASING, SIN-HATING, KING JAMES VERSION-ONLY
  • BAPTISTS!
  • [laughter] AND I'M HAPPY ABOUT IT.
  • OUR PREACHERS AREN'T ALWAYS RIGHT, BUT THEY'RE NEVER IN
  • DOUBT.
  • AND MANY OF THOSE CHURCHES WERE ABOUT AS BIG AS THAT FIRST PEW
  • RIGHT THERE.
  • AND I TRAVELED EVERYWHERE BY MYSELF, MY LITTLE CAR, MY LITTLE
  • SOUNDTRACKS I'D BOUGHT DOWN AT THE CHRISTIAN BOOKSTORE.
  • AND I WOULD GO THERE AND, YOU KNOW, GET THERE EARLY AND MEET
  • WITH THE SOUND MAN.
  • AND, OF COURSE, THOSE LITTLE CHURCHES, THEY'D ALWAYS HAVE
  • SOME GUY OUT THERE, YOU KNOW, RUNNING THE SOUND WHO'S ABOUT
  • TEN YEARS OLDER THAN GOD.
  • [laughter] AND HE'D BE CHANGING THOSE
  • SOUNDTRACKS.
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE WHEN YOU'VE GOT HUNDREDS OF
  • PEOPLE STARING AT YOU BETWEEN SONGS, HOW THOSE FEW SECONDS CAN
  • FEEL LIKE AN ETERNITY?
  • SO FINALLY I JUST STARTED TAKING MY OWN SOUND SYSTEM.
  • I CARRIED IT IN THE TRUNK OF MY CAR, AND I WOULD DRIVE ABOUT
  • EVERY 200 MILES, I'D STOP AT ANOTHER INDEPENDENT BAPTIST
  • CHURCH AND SING.
  • AND THESE PEOPLE WOULDN'T CLAP, BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE GIVING
  • GLORY TO MEN.
  • AND THEY WOULDN'T SHOUT, BECAUSE THEY'RE AFRAID SOMEONE MIGHT
  • THINK THEY WERE DOING IT IN ANOTHER LANGUAGE.
  • BUT THEY WOULD LAUGH.
  • AND ALL I CARED ABOUT IS, "ARE THEY LISTENING?
  • ARE THEY PAYING ATTENTION?" AND I WOULD TELL MY LITTLE
  • STORIES, AND I'D TRY TO FIND SONGS THAT WENT WITH THEM,
  • 'CAUSE I GOT SO TIRED.
  • I GOT SO TIRED WHEN I WAS GROWING UP AND HEARING PEOPLE
  • COME TO OUR CHURCH AND SAY, "THIS NEXT SONG SAYS, AMAZING
  • GRACE.
  • HOW SWEET THE SOUND THAT SAVED A WRETCH LIKE ME."
  • AND THEN THEY'D SING, "♪ AMAZING GRACE. ♪
  • ♪ HOW SWEET-- ♪ ♪" I WAS HYPERACTIVE.
  • I THOUGHT, "SING IT, OR QUOTE IT.
  • WE DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT TWICE."
  • [laughter] SO I JUST STARTED TELLING, "WHAT
  • AMAZING GRACE MEANT TO ME WAS AMAZING GRACE THAT I MADE IT
  • THROUGH MY CHILDHOOD."
  • AND I WOULD SING ON THOSE SUNDAY MORNING SERVICES, YOU KNOW,
  • AND--ABOUT 20 MINUTES.
  • AND THEN THE PREACHER ALWAYS PREACHED, BECAUSE NOTHING
  • HAPPENS IN A BAPTIST CHURCH UNTIL THE PREACHER PREACHES.
  • AND HE WOULD PREACH, YOU KNOW, AN HOUR, HOUR AND A HALF.
  • AND IF HE'D HAVE STUDIED, HE COULD HAVE DONE IT IN 20
  • MINUTES, BUT-- [laughter]
  • HE WOULD PREACH.
  • AND YOU KNOW HOW IT IS ON SUNDAY MORNING, YOU KNOW?
  • YOU'VE SUNG YOUR BIT, AND YOU SIT DOWN AND HE STARTS
  • PREACHING.
  • AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, YOUR STOMACH STARTS GNAWING ON YOUR
  • BACKBONE AND YOU'RE SCARED TO DEATH THE METHODISTS ARE GOING
  • TO BEAT YOU TO THE CAFETERIA.
  • AND FINALLY, HE SAYS, "EVERY HEAD BOWED, EVERY EYE CLOSED."
  • AND YOU THINK, "OH, THE CAFETERIA'S IN SIGHT."
  • AFTER 45 VERSES OF JUST AS I AM,
  • HE FINALLY SAYS, "AMEN."
  • AND YOU THINK IT'S OVER, DON'T YOU?
  • NO, IT'S NOT.
  • HE SAYS, "NOW BE SEATED.
  • WE'RE GOING TO HAVE THE LORD'S SUPPER."
  • I DON'T KNOW WHY THEY CALL IT THE LORD'S SUPPER.
  • YOU NEVER GET ENOUGH.
  • THEY SHOULD CALL IT THE LORD'S SNACK.
  • HAVEN'T YOU EVER WANTED--WHEN THAT PLATE OF CRACKERS GOES BY--
  • TO GRAB YOU A HANDFUL OF 'EM?
  • GET YOU SOME CHEEZ WHIZ AND CELEBRATE!
  • CELEBRATE!
  • HE'S NOT DEAD ANYMORE.
  • IT'S TIME TO EAT.
  • KICK THE LID OFF THAT TOMB.
  • COME OUT, AND LET'S GO EAT.
  • BUT I USED TO GO TO THOSE CONCERTS AND HAD A GREAT TIME.
  • SLEPT ON PREACHERS' COUCHES, AND THEN I WOULD GO TO CONCERTS LIKE
  • THIS AND SEE SANDI PATTY AND THE GAITHER VOCAL BAND AND PEOPLE
  • THAT I IDOLIZED, I MEAN, AS A YOUNG KID.
  • I WOULD JUST LOOK UP TO 'EM SO MUCH AND THINK, "MAN, I JUST
  • WISH THEY EVEN KNEW MY NAME."
  • AND I DIDN'T THINK THAT I'D EVER GET TO SING WITH ANY OF THEM.
  • YOU KNOW, I WOULD HEAR MANY OF THEM TALK, AND I KNEW I COULD
  • OUTTALK 'EM, BUT KNEW I COULDN'T OUTSING 'EM.
  • [laughter]
