• “See that fifth of Jack? I can drink that bottle, even a bottle and a half.” –Men’s Journal, March 2014
• “I don’t know how people are going to take [The Outsiders album]. Shit, I don’t know if we’ll make another one. I can’t imagine continuing to try to push the envelope. How do you keep doing that?” — Rolling Stone, February 7th, 2014
• “I don’t care who you are. Band members, managers label, anybody. You’ve gotta go through battle with me and swap blood. I’m not just gonna give you respect.” –Rolling Stone Country, June 11th, 2014
• “See, [my wife] always tells people that Chief is real. It’s a real thing. I’m a different guy. I’m a different hang. Some people are intimidated by it and cut me a wide berth. I’ve noticed it.” –Men’s Journal, March 2014
• “I’ll have whiskey in my cup onstage, but I’ve slowed down. But I’m still faster than everybody else.” – Rolling Stone, February 7th, 2014
• “If they aren’t fighting, they’re screwing. Saginaw, Michigan, we had four or five fights that night, and up on the railing, eight or 10 couples screwing, everyone responding like this is the last show they’ll ever see. I don’t think we encourage any of this. I’m just very aggressive and intense onstage.” –Men’s Journal, March 2014
• “I have a pretty good understanding of how I am. I’ve always been pretty laid-back and easygoing, until I’m not. When I get going, you’re never going to stop me. When it gets going, I’ll destroy everything.” –Men’s Journal, March 2014
• “‘Guys Like Me’ [off Church's 2006 LP Sinners Like Me] has a guy that drinks too many beers. That was before anybody had ever put beer and trucks related in songs. Now, it’s in every song … And it’s funny now to look at that song, which every song is a lot similar to now.” –Rolling Stone Country, June 11th, 2014
• “Sometimes I’ll just take a gun and shoot coyotes. It’s a good space for me.” — Rolling Stone, February 7th, 2014
• “Everybody said ‘Chief’ was the biggest record I would ever make. [They said] ‘Don’t even go back in. You’ll never top that.’ I used a lot of that as fuel: ‘Okay, motherfuckers. I know you think that this is it, but we can be way more creative, we can be way more out there.’ And I saw other artists trying to follow what we were doing. I thought after the Chief record, we got pulled to the middle and I became one of the guys that were the center of the format.” –Rolling Stone Country , June 11th, 2014
• “There are eight or ten songs, I shit you not, they are Song of the Year, runaway smashes for us. Didn’t make the album.” –Spin, February, 4th, 2014
