Q Do you guys get mistaken for ZZ Top?

A Naw. I imagine Phil might because he’s got a longer beard. Back when my beard was kind of trimmed up, they said I looked Chuck Norris.


Q How much soap and water does that beard see?

A I gotta wash that rascal every morning. I use a shampoo and — don’t tell nobody — but I’ve got to use conditioner because it gets like bristle pads you scrub a cast-iron skillet with.


Q Are you guys popular because you fill a TV niche as latter-day “Beverly Hillbillies”?

A The top thing that made us popular, without a shadow of doubt, is it is a show with prayer in it. It’s Godly based with morals. Throughout the country, I get more handshakes for it being a clean moral show the kids can watch. And they love the prayer at the dinner table.


Q What is your favorite church hymn?

A There are so many of them. I think “Amazing Grace.” I really love that song.


Q Do you think you are participating in one of those TV shows that essentially makes fun of Southerners?

A No, I don’t. I think this show shows the world that Southerners have a lot more common sense than we’re given credit for, and we can survive off of the land if we have to.


Q Is there anything you do off-camera that would surprise viewers? For example, do you enjoy opera?

A Naw. Well, I’m becoming a country music songwriter. I love to write country music. I don’t have [an album] out yet, but it might surprise people that I do that.
