"I feel the here's the back of my neck Xanana. Hanging out having our by now here's My neck or still standing up. Like A reappropriation of your songs that. Maybe fell off a bit but now just back, full force. And again, that's something a lot of my friends from the nineties my compatriots you know that were out at the same time. Basically, we we all talk about it all the time whenever he's kind, it's Kinda. Cool that. You just didn't expect it almost kind of feel like nineties country. Is Kind of the new classic rock and by that I mean, you have because I mean we I grew up on the classic rock and roll of the seventies and stuff. And It had such a resurgent say in the nineties where you wanted to hear grand funk, you wanted to hear fog you wanted to hear seger you know and and it and they're touring just exploded. And you know making more money on the road than they did back in the day because people wanted to relive that music so much and I think nineties country was so big I give garth's so much credit for that because he busted down a lot of walls and opened up made that narrow two lane road into this big superhighway and I think it touched. The music we did back in touch. So many people now they are at that age where or they WANNA relive it. You know and and they have a little more money because they have careers and the tickets the money you know in the touring is big. Yeah. No. Well up until this all this nonsense but it but prior to that I mean we were it was just it was amazing and you and I would see young people. I mean very young people twenty twenty years old twenty, four years old. Seventeen years old girls singing along. To do the songs you know and. That means their parents raised them listen to it. I was talking to Tracy Lawrence Pretty. Recently, he said the same thing about classic rock exact. Same analogy. He was classic rock. We got two point one or two here the CPR stuff example, and so he's like people. Pay Me Birmingham because I think that music for my generation Tracy Generation. That music was the biggest thing. There was class the rock and roll of that time in pop pop rock and roll of that time was the biggest thing in the world. So I had the biggest impact on us you know as far as. To own a lot of people you know because even country music I mean I grew up Merle haggard and Buck Owens cash and Waylon? Johnny Horton and Jim Reeves, but it was always kind of. Exclusive Club because you remember being in high school even in the south. And Middle School and high school and stuff, and if you like country music really they just didn't get it. They didn't under a lot of kids just didn't understand why we lacked it. You know but but rock and roll everybody likes. You more of a universal impact and and I agree with Tracy I feel like now is our time. It says like ninety country was that big Well one boy, one girl where do you put that in your set? When play 'cause? That's just smash two? Oh, man usually in the middle and and that is that may be. One. Of the most requested songs we get because sometimes you I'll do that when I'm not planning to do that. If I, go to a Colin ratio and you don't play one boy one girl find me getting a refund real quick. You know what I have heard that. There are certain ones. That you just know you always need to do and in others I try to switch out because we had quite a few and you think well in there's new stuff you WanNa do stuff and and it's very hard for me to sometimes a lot of artists I think go through this. You think well, well, I WANNA I wanNA play this because this means a lot to me but then I'll go see someone else and I do the same thing if they don't play Two or three of the ones I get I get a little mad about you. I can't believe they didn't do this. Then I have to remember now they're saying the same thing about me if I leave certain songs out so now I'm doing it all the time well Y- I'm not gonNA. Let you escape know without plan me a little boy one girl refund. Under All right. Here we go and I never realized how many twins there were in America until we put this song out and apparently it was a lot of lots of families that have twins at that could relate to this story and so.

Wants to hear what he has to say but he He doesn't go with them. He decides he's going to drop the bomb. Anyway. You know I've been reading. Accidental presidents is what you know. That touches very very lightly on what your book really goes into. You know especially with President Dying. In whole accidental president is about people who really weren't expecting to be the president. Being told Oh time for you to go when they're like holy crap. Now I gotta be president and so. There's a light stroke on what you're talking about in this book, but I'm GonNa. Read it I'm going to get your copy navy depending on how this interview goes. I put a little unscripted. And and and and I want you to honestly tell me in your readers afterwards, whether whether or not you're enjoyed it because I'm not confident that you and they will say you know what that really was a good rate.

Well, I'm really happy. You're here I. Just wanted to ask you a couple of things because I was. Going to all your notes of of all the great people that you've spoken to. And I was I reading about Mother Teresa. You've interview. Mother Theresa I wonder what is not talking to her light, but what is getting to her like? And how many people do you have to go through when you talk to someone like a mother, Theresa well. This was back in Nineteen, seventy, nine and she. was in Calcutta, which is where her mission was and I. You know I don't know. She won the Nobel Peace Prize and and so we went halfway around the world to interviewer I didn't have to set it up, but I I remember we arrived at our mission and I am not particularly well I'm I'm a religious person? I believe in God. I'm not particularly organized religious person, but I have to say that whether it was on a spiritual plane or a religious buying or a secular applying she, she operated at a different spiritual level than anybody else. I had ever met and and I remember when the whole we were there for a week seeing how she you know was ten thing to lepers and people who've been left on the three to die and this extraordinary. missionaries of Charity and I remember at the end of it. She brought me and my crew up to chapel. Intermission and she prayed for are safe trip. And I was at the time I'm pretty good about it now a little bit of nervous flyer, but when it ended I turn to my producer and I, said you know what I've never felt safer about a plane trip God's flying on this line with us, and she was just super tough lady. It was a little Yugoslavian lady. I don't know five feet tall, but she was top nails at the had to be to to to deal with the extraordinary poverty and and and famine. You know the lack of food and sanitation, and all of that in Calcutta and kind of create. This away says that she had. Did, she have bodyguards making sure nobody harassed her. No no I mean you got to remember. This is nineteen seventy nine. This is a different world and Th. There wasn't wasn't that kind of security in in those days I'll tell you Calcutta though I've only been there once, and that was quite extraordinarily. We came in from the airport and we're driving along. There was no big superhighway. You're driving along like A. Two Lane Road, and this is in the middle of the night, and there were all these lumps. Dark mounds the on the sidewalks along the road coming in from the airport to the center of the city, and I remember saying to the driver. What what's that? And he said that's people and I forget the number I may have been a million of may have been two million who just slept on the side of the street, and they had these open gutters where the sidewalk the street at that running. Running water in them and that's where people would would bays and brush their teeth, and that's sanitation I mean that you know it's kind of a I should say sanitation in quotes, but it was an extraordinary scene unlike anything I've ever seen before since. That's what I'm GONNA. Say when this interviews over when I was talking to Chris an extraordinary scene unlike anything I've ever seen or done before have I that. Thank you very much. For the here. By the way, let let me hit it again. Let me hit it again Chris. Wallace is on June. Ninth is called countdown one thousand forty-five, although Chris to be fair. People are going to hear this on radio, but millions are going around podcast, so they don't need to hear me. Reset it up because they've already heard US say at once. That makes sense. Yeah, you can never say okay all right all right. We'll I WANNA. Thank you for dressing up for this interview. Listen let me add a couple more questions before I. Get roasted here too much. Michael Jordan you were with Michael Jordan while he was still playing. You know I I. Don't know if you watch the documentary or not I felt like I watched every minute of it. Okay, he. You know depending on who you talk to some say. He was a great leader something he was a great bully. What would you say about Michael? Jordan, I would say I what happened was that I love Michael Jordan. I used to watch all the time, and I always said you know I'm GonNa Watch them, and then the son of a gun quit and I thought my God I've you know I've missed my chance? And then he came back and I said I'm absolutely going to to go see him, so I went to Washington and he came to I. I think that came to Washington once. A year and I made a point of taking. My son was then ten years old out to see him, and it was like the Beatles. This is the year he first your that he came back and they won seventy two games I. Think they were either Seventy and twelve or seventy two fan. I'm sure somebody out. There knows that they broke the record for the most wins and Italy was it was Jordan and Pippen and Rodman and Phil Jackson is that this is the Beatles and I was working on a magazine show with Diane Sawyer and Sam Donaldson at the time called Primetime, and so I went to my producer, and I said it. Can. With the BEEP. Can do it and the juror and you pitched one. Reason you know. They were the hottest story in sports. Then they said yes, and we basically spent. About a month, not all solid off on the road. On because the Chicago Bulls you've. I got to play. hoops was Michael. We played. I went up to him and I said all right, so we're going to do this and I said. Let's play game course. And he said No. Let's dog and I said what's dog is that it's to letter shorter DOJ, so it's okay, but I said you start with the and you have to shoot from three point line and I can shoot from a few feet closer in. That was fine with him so I'd start shooting. He'd start yelling I. I missed the BASS. Good.

"Johnson Alley Brazell Tyson. That's what it's always been about. Joe Louis Lennox Lewis Lennox Lewis. Yes Yup the heavyweight division and we got to Super Super duper heavyweight in their prime fighting. This is not a fight where they're going to be forty years old man if they default like seven eight years ago. This is a great by. We getting them in their prime. Now you look at these two fighters Tyson. Fear is the more technical the more south boxer. He is a boxer. He can put punches together. Like it for man his size gift. I didn't realize that big until I started reading up on it. He's six foot nine. Six hundred fifty says he's going to wait to seventy Harvard. Not The way to seventy six. That's got and then you look and you look at Deontay wilder guy picked up the boxing. A nineteen so skipped. He's not technically sound. He's not a pure boxer per sale but he has done a Mike. And that's what you love about the heavyweight division. Skip because the one part of this is why you love to have skill this way by little. Tyson because you know you get fireworks now you showed up late you might becoming in and everybody's walking out 'cause he ended it and that's what Deontay water can do. I still don't know how regatta wrestlemainia because he caught influence with this great right. I thought it was over and on the way down. He caught a left hook. And you set up in late. Are you for real? I thought it would thought who's CG skipped because no wait a headway get hit blush like that on. The team is normally curtains. But it's going to be a great by. I'm anticipating fireworks. Eight ESPIRITO SAYS SOMEBODY HAS TO GO ONCE. Old needs to go but someone needs to go. Data lead to great. Al Davis says someone must go down and they must go down hard. Yeah so I hear everything you just said. I thought wilder got robbed the first time I thought he basically won the fight. I thought it was over when he decked him less than a minute into the last round and he caught him flush. Because there's no bigger right hand. Maybe in the history of boxing than this guy's right hand if he catches you flush he's an athlete at. He's six seven seven he goes. I saw the superbowl. I take a couple of years ago. Might have been that laughing with an Atlanta. Yeah I saw him but he's he's only like two twelve yes seven to twelve so he's really thin in. Yes okay I got it so what happened. Was the referee. Jack Re started his count late to me because he shouldn't have beaten the count and he did beat it because it started late but when he popped up. And this is why I'm gonNA give Imperia real shot in the rematch when he popped up like the undertaker like you said. Not only did he pop up. He seemed rejuvenated like he was somehow fueled by nearly getting knocked down because he was knocked out for few SEC. Yes right yes. And then all of a sudden everything changed because he's whole strategy change for the next two minutes in the last two minutes the fight. He went into attack Moan and at six nine to whatever he wanted to sue for the first time but again whatever he was at six nine to fifty six he started in fighting were. He's in attack mode and getting in on the inside of a long deontay wilder to. We're remember there's one way to defeat the big right hand and that's to get in so tight force. The actions so fiercely that he can't extended anymore but he's he's stuck which is very uncommon for guy that you want us retail for eighty-five into reach normally guys want to stand back and shoot that. Here's the thing when you stand in harm's way because if you stand outside of the distance hat geologists I'd outside you can be in trouble s okay so we agree Tyson. Fury is much more. The accomplished skilled boxer. In fact we always do pound for pound like floyd the greatest boxer but we do pound for pound. We GO LOW. We go down right. What if you go up? I can make a case that pound for pound. If he's GonNa way to seventy for this fight he's the most skilled two hundred and seventy pound. Although Lennox was up their latest. Listen leaning towards unbelievable. They seem when I go to the fights. Right Love Him. And we've had him on the show and he weighed two fifty eight right so he ushered in that Big Superhighway. He did six five to fifty guy. Or IT'S GONNA leave with only two. Oh Five Joe Louis. Those guys were not like what we see. The heavyweight revisit. The End Ali was a little heavier job but when he was Ali Ryan was five and he was a boxer. Yeah and the heavyweight division which we did normally see skip Mohammed Ali blogs like a low guy. Could I agree so Tyson again? It's not that he boxes with fury so to speak. It's more skill. It shocks me how skilled the is at that size so again if he's doubled down a sewing again. Yesterday he doubled down on his prediction again. It's prefight hype. But he he is sort of because he's such a great speaker. He comes across his so eloquent but his point is I'm going to attack him in the first round the way I didn't do it the first time and I'm GonNa do damage in the first round. And he's adamant about. I'm going to put him down in the second round right. Well he's capable of that. So is it possible that he stumbled literally stumbled into the right strategy after nearly got knocked? Now I'm sure I'm sure a while to understand that. But here's the things get in talking to talking to mark. Zalin made him a couple. Times talked to holy feeling guide. They say here's the thing. There's no problem with being aggressive. But you have to understand when you throw. You have to expect something to come back now. Tyson fury has two punches together. You put punches together. I've never seen a man throw a punch and protective cheat at the same time. So okay you get through progressive. What are you set yourself up for okay? But I'm not I'm not saying he's going to be super punching aggressive. He's just going to be forcing the action with dukes up like to stay here but but defied inside to stay so inside. That wilder can't get listening stint on it and the thing is when you look at the Ontario. People think he's a wildfire. He's not a wildfire. He only becomes wild when he thinks he has you in trouble was he was he got up and he still had him in trouble. You see him flailing away but if you watch him through the course of the fight everything is trying to try to measure the job. He's trying to match you with the job and try to come without one hitter quitter. So he he. He's not obviously he's not technical line he can't rotate like puree but he has skills but normally skip still. I watched it on Youtube last night. I don't believe he got caught him. Flushed with two punches. That would end in anybody else's night you saw it. What do you call you you saw when you call severing? He caught it with put lights out. And Fury listen to theory. Talk fears this. Did you think the demons that I overcame that I got up to him was far worse than that push? He's going through his head because the referee explain these talking about it he said I got to five and he opens his eyes and he said he's like I've never seen anything like that before but somebody got to go down to go down. You sound like you're leaning while I am leaning red but a that's a big man and he's technically sound so he got he got skilled he can box like. I said he's going to have to put together. I don't believe he can get him out with obviously the heavyweights. They can't just write obsolete. And get you out there. But he's more apt to put together to put you down as opposed to one. Not One shot will just because the first fight ended in a split draw with a shocking ending that we still can't quite s. I am more excited for the rematch. Too and I was for the first guy to skip that. We've seen that you want you know ties every ties and prime you wanted to watch. That's what you get. What what can you just give you know? He's going to distance. Yeah this luke is as much respect. I have for Florida's a boxer because he's the greatest defensive fighter ever just hard to watch his fights and I never got up and I got up for Connor because there was this X. factor could connor land one. Shot that would put him down. We WanNA see knockout debate box. Impurities Oh he's technically Saudi controlled command. Control THE RING. He Control Direction he was the aggressor. Yada Yada Yada. But it's like baseball baseball. Pure they love wind up game. Not Me I was twelve level. I was somebody hitting the ball at the par. I'm GonNa go to Vegas that they're.
