As for his latest record, "Old Boots, New Dirt," it's gone platinum, just like the five before it. In between songs, he revealed just what he thought of that success.

"It's very exciting, especially in this day and age in music," he explained. "It's getting harder and harder to sell albums anymore. So I think anytime that happens and you have a gold album, or a platinum album, or a No. 1 single — any of that stuff — it's still as exciting now as it ever was. That's one thing that never gets old for me."

What a show!
