The last time you were in TIME, you were on the cover with the Dixie Chicks. Then nothing for seven years. What have you been doing?
I've been being a mother. Raising my two boys Slade and Beckett with my husband Adrian.
Is that why you called your new album Mother?
I felt like it was a word that everyone would have some sort of emotion about, because everyone has a mother. So it would make people feel something--good or bad.
So the song "Free Life" is about your life now?
For me it's about the West Memphis...
