Tell me how this show plays out, for those who haven't had a chance to see any of the tour yet.

We do mostly all of the hits from the '60s and '70s, and we do a couple songs from his album, "Ghosts of a Canvas." And we do a couple of cover songs. We do the artists he likes, like we do a Ray Charles song and Hank Williams. It's a nice concise show. He plays a lot of guitar.
Do you perform a lot with him?
I do dueling banjo with him. And Shannon does a duel solo with him during "Wichita Lineman." That's about it. We try to keep the show pretty constant to keep him feeling OK about the show order so he doesn't get confused or anything.
You have been very open about your dad's diagnosis with Alzheimer's disease. Have you been shocked about outpouring of support?
Before we announced his diagnosis, when he would mess up at a show people would say, "Oh, he's drunk" or "He's just on drugs again." But then the first show we did after we announced his Alzheimer's was like night and day. It would be a packed house, he'd walk out onstage and got a standing ovation immediately and just tears and hurrahs, and so much encouragement and it's been like that ever since.
Is there a favorite that you like to play with your dad? Or do you have a favorite song in general?
My favorite is "True Grit," that's my favorite one to play onstage. I just love that song and how he sings it. But his favorite is definitely "Wichita Lineman."
Tell me a little bit about working with Rascal Flatts in their video for "Banjo."
Oh, Rascal Flatts are such nice guys and so talented. I was so excited to get to work them. The music video was really fun. Actually, I didn't get to meet them on the music video because we didn't shoot on the same days. I did get to meet them a couple of months later when they asked me to play the song live with them. They're just the sweetest guys, I hope I get to work with them again.
I understand you and Shannon have a band, how has that been going?
It's been going great, we've been opening a lot of shows for my dad, and playing some showcases and we've been writing a lot of songs. We're shopping some record labels right now, and hopefully we're going to try to get a record going in the next six months. We are a country roots band, we use a lot of banjo, guitar, we have a stand-up bass and do a lot of sibling harmony. I think people will really enjoy it.
What's the greatest gift your dad has given you so far?
I think, to treat others with love and respect. And if you want to do something and you're passionate about something, just do it and don't let anybody stop you from doing it.
