#Quote
1 There was a time when I was - after my very first record from Nashville, I thought I might not be one of those who actually really makes it, and I may end up back in Canada, just playing clubs. And that might - this might have just been it.
2 I certainly don't think you need to be famous to want to leave a legacy, but when you are famous, it's even more likely that your child will get the wrong perspective on your life if you die prematurely.
3 Sting I've seen a few times, and he really inspired me in the sense that he breaks the songs down a lot and will take a different approach. He'll take an acoustic approach to them; he'll rearrange them for the live stage.
4 You don't want to be outside during blackfly season.
5 You can't just turn love on and off.
6 The only reason that you do visual is solely for the visual. That's the only reason. It doesn't sell your music for you.
7 Without a doubt, the best way to get to know me is through my music.
8 The red-carpet spotlight is a little bit more nerve-racking when you haven't been doing it all the time.
9 My voice is stronger today than ever.
10 Suffering does not discriminate.
11 My fears and anxieties throughout my whole life have been slowly squeezing my voice.
12 It's very hard to be honest with yourself when something's just not working.
13 It's very hard to concentrate when your stomach's rumbling.
14 I've succeeded as far as I'm concerned - I don't feel that I have any cliffs I could fall over anytime soon.
15 If I hadn't had a childhood career, I probably would've signed a contract with the first person I came across.
16 In a way, we women take on more than we need to sometimes.
17 It always disappoints me when I go to a concert and they don't play my favorite song, or at least one of their biggest hits.
18 It's really such a personal journey, making a record, but even more so writing the songs.
19 I've been performing my whole life.
20 I'm like everybody else.
21 I wouldn't call myself a feminist, because I think there are differences between men and women.
22 I was not naturally meant to be on stage. I hated being in the spotlight; I was scared.
23 I want romance.
24 I like being at home and cooking.
25 I love the role that men play in our lives.
26 I think it's important that readers know that not every celebrity is a freak.
27 I have two fathers.
28 I have my own opinions, but my songs don't share them.
29 Coming from where I came from, it was unimaginable to ever be wealthy. That was just too far out of my reach.
30 For a good 10 to 12 years, I was working non-stop and I wasn't really enjoying my success.
31 I certainly could've gone off track many, many times in my youth.
32 I enjoyed working at McDonald's.
33 I have arm-wrestled here and there... guys seem to want to test my strength.
34 Marilyn Monroe never sold a platinum album. And more people know my music than what I look like.
35 All I ever intended was to make a living at what I do. Everything I've achieved since then is above and beyond.
36 I'm never at my best on television. There's a row of cameras between you and the audience, and it's very weird, very confusing.
37 I'd like to see the Olympics live. I've only watched it on television.
38 My father was a beautiful man.
39 I spent a lot of my life holding back my cries, and I want to change that because it's not good for me.
40 I love music.
41 I temporarily lost my hope in love, and it was temporary, thank goodness.
42 I don't take any day for granted anymore.
43 I played a lot of football when I was younger. I'm a good receiver, actually.
44 If my clothing does stand out, then I guess it's a compliment, but I just wear whatever feels comfortable.
45 I really can't imagine not singing again.
46 I'm neither embarrassed of who I am, where I come from, what I've experienced, I'm not ashamed of it.
47 Now that I have and I'm not a have-not, I've learned how important it is to maintain humility.
48 I don't want my body to be a distraction from my talent or my brain.
49 I really hope my peers appreciate and respect what I'm doing.
50 I want to talk to people that have been through big disappointments, big emotional crises, deep life struggles, and I will learn something from that.
51 Putting a stamp on things just helps you say, 'Hey, yesterday I was there, and today I'm here.' It's another step forward, and it feels like another turning point and an unleashing of creativity, and now I'm going to start focusing on the show and the production, the fun stuff that comes with it.
52 I didn't have a choice growing up but to be more insecure because others had more.
53 Country music is still your grandpa's music, but it's also your daughter's music. It's getting bigger and better all the time and I'm glad to be a part of it.
54 It was just like a dream. I could have ended up with an album that's not all that different from anything else coming out of Nashville. Mutt made the difference. He took these songs, my attitude, my creativity, and colored them in a way that is unique.
55 So many people bare their midriffs, I don't know why mine is such an issue.
56 I'll always be sad that my marriage ended.
57 Writing is very much a playground - an artistic playground. It's the most fun thing I do.
58 I was in a very deep, dark slump, and I needed to find a way to get myself out of it. I had to force myself back out into life, back out into experiencing things.
59 Dysphonia is not a singing problem. It's a voice box issue in the muscle on the voice, very different from having a nodule on the vocal cords, which I've never had. I'm lucky that I've never had that. It needs a long renewal time, and even today, I am still addressing it.
60 I really admire artists that are willing to take a different approach and a different angle to their shows.
61 I don't want someone photographing my cellulite - I can't take it!
62 I want to be successful, but I don't really have what it takes to do it comfortably.
63 My life revolves around my child's routine.
64 My music must reflect whatever's going on in my mind, and my life needs to evolve for me to discover who it is I'm becoming.
65 Music is a great natural high and a great natural escape.
66 I do not see my family life in any way, shape, or form as an opportunity for a photo.
67 I'm not someone who is glamorous all the time.
68 You learn to accept your own reality.
69 I'm more private than people realize. I'm not that easy to get to know.
70 I enjoy sports in person.
71 I won't lie, I've had a lot of discouraging moments in the past years, moments I wasn't sure about things and doubted myself.
72 Fortunately, when you're a mom, the responsibility of caring for your child can keep you going.
73 One day, someone said to me, "Do you want to go jump out of an airplane?" I felt like I had nothing to lose anymore, so I said, "Why not?" And every day since then, I ask myself that question.
74 Life unravels the way it does, and it has an effect on you, but you have to take responsibility for dealing with it.
75 Later in my life, I'm going to look back and smile and be very fulfilled. I know that if I don't give it my all right now I'll regret it later. That's very important to me, because I've worked all my life to have this.
76 I feel like in a way I'm starting over, with everything.
77 I'm always soul searching on a spiritual level.
78 I feel sexy when I get out of the tub - your skin is fresh and you've put up your hair without looking.
79 Yes, you can lose somebody overnight, yes, your whole life can be turned upside down. Life is short. It can come and go like a feather in the wind.
80 I lost my sense of trust, honesty and compassion. I crashed down and became what I consider an emotional mess. I've never been so miserable in my whole life. I just wanted to go to bed and never get up.
81 Being betrayed is one of the most valuable lessons life can teach.
82 I find that the very things that I get criticized for, which is usually being different and just doing my own thing and just being original, is the very thing that's making me successful.
83 There were moments when I really just thought, I don't need anything and I don't need anyone. I just want to go away and disappear.
84 I feel like I'm on top of the world. Honestly, I feel like I've climbed a very giant mountain, and I'm just standing right on top with my arms wide open and breathing rarified air.
85 I really feel like life will dictate itself. You should allow it to unfold as naturally as possible. Just go with the flow. When you're really desperate, you say a few prayers and hope for the best. That's the way I've always lived my life.
86 Horses calm me. I love being around them. They smell great, they are beautiful to look at, they are loving, demanding, temperamental, and they settle you.
87 When you don't come from struggle, gaining appreciation is a quality that's difficult to come by.
88 It's important to give it all you have while you have the chance.
89 [on incorporating live animals into her act] They have a mind of their own. Sometimes they'll pee onstage or sometimes they'll poo. We just never know really what's going to happen. The unpredictability keeps us on our toes.
90 [on inviting audience members to join her onstage] I do try to assess "Is this person drunk?" or "Is this person going to be hysterical and not manageable?" And so I do watch the body language. I don't always get it quite right, but I've never had any security issues.
