"So, at the end of it all, I want our songs to be the ones that got people through the tough times, challenged them to ask the big questions, and opened the windows and the doors of the soul to look at a story bigger than ourselves."

Happy birthday to one of the most inspiring, incredible, genuine people on the planet. Your constant optimism, empathy, wisdom, compassion, and love for music, people, and life make you such an amazing role model for so many. You’ve written countless words that have moved people to grow, to change, and often to stay alive, and your unfailing hope shines not only through your songs, but in all of us. To a man who has influenced and inspired so many souls, who has overcome adversity through the will of love, whose overwhelming honesty changes the world every single day - happy birthday. Here’s to many, many more.
