Best Quotes from Charlie Worsham

You know, I only claim to play three instruments. My dad is a banker, but a drummer at heart; and my mom used to teach piano lessons when she was younger. So I can play some piano, play a little drums, and fake the bass – but banjo, mandolin, and guitar are my thing.

Back in I want to say 2011, Taylor Swift was on her ‘Speak Now’ tour. She was kind enough to bring me out as one of the openers on that tour. Between her and Miranda Lambert, who also helped me out that year, I got a pretty non-typical first tour as a fellow artist.

I feel like you become a songwriter when you claim that it’s sort of like a switch flipped, and you’re always writing. Even in your sleep, you’re always thinking about it in the back of your mind. The true writing – when you’re officially writing – that’s just when its front of mind, but its always there. You’re always listening for a hook.

I had a long, long time to make ‘Rubberband,’ and I originally thought that that record would last two years. Once I got over realizing that that’s not gonna happen, and sort of got my perspective back, I realized, ‘Man I’m really fortunate. I get to write music, make music for a living.’

When I’m at home or in the studio, I have a 1963 Martin. It’s a D-28, and I love that guitar. I write on that guitar, and it’s the first guitar that I put a pickup in and ran through an amplifier, splitting the signal to the amplifier and a DI or in the studio mic’ing it traditionally and putting an amp in the other room.

Charlie Worsham

My favorite thing about guitar, and the thing that always drew me to it when I was first learning to play it, was those moments when you think you know what it might sound like, but you don’t, and then you hit it, and it’s a total surprise. You hear it with really fresh ears. Alternate tunings, for me, they give that back.
