"This is my 'wide awake in the A.M.' playlist. This is what happens when band guys on a bus start having wars over what to play off their iPods... The songs don't all match, but I like them all for different reasons."

U2 - "Vertigo"

"If you're new on planet earth and don't know Bono and


, start here!"

Ozzy Osbourne - "Crazy Train"

"Played in football stadiums everywhere, this is a Sunday must."

John Mayer - "Slow Dancing In A Burning Room"

Just a really great vibe on this one.  It's a great slow down moment on any playlist.

Charlie Worsham - "Trouble Is"

"Groovy track, great voice and a great musician. Very cool album as a whole but I dig this one especially."

Robin Thicke (feat. T.I. And Pharrell) - "Blurred Lines"

"This song has an absolutely infectious beat. As a musician, I love the space on the track and as a listener it just makes me want to dance."

Electric Mary - "Let Me Out"

"This was a song I got introduced to by one of my band guys late at night on the bus. Hit play and rock out."

Boston  - "Peace of Mind"

"Come on. It's Boston."

Merle Haggard, Janie Frickie - "Natural High"

"Classic country voice. Classic love song. If you haven't heard it, go hear it."

Ray Wylie Hubbard - "Snake Farm"

One of the muddiest/dirtiest sounding guitar parts with one of the strangest lyrics you will ever hear. It was the song that played while I took the stage on one of my tours.

Aerosmith - “Dream On”

"One of my absolute favorite vocals based on pure emotion. The insanely high part at the end... Epic."
