Daily Discovery: Sam Lewis, “The Cross That I Wear”
ARTIST: Sam Lewis
SONG: “The Cross That I Wear”
BIRTHPLACE: Garden Grove, California
AMBITIONS: I want to learn sign language, grow a successful vegetable garden, write a song with Willie Nelson, build a house and give it to someone.
TURN-ONS: Aussie women, currently.
DREAM GIG: Saturday Night Live with my parents hosting
TV ADDICTIONS: The Andy Griffith Show and Friday Night Lights.
MY PREFERRED MODE OF TRANSPORTATION: I’m in the process of converting a pair of cowboy boots into roller blades. One will run on hydrogen and the other corn syrup, until then I prefer my Ford Focus – all 160k miles driven without cruise control.
WHAT MAKES A WOMAN SEXY: Everything except her shoes– seriously, most men really don’t care.
5 THINGS EVERY MAN SHOULD OWN: his name, bottle opener, wheelbarrow, endless supply of chewing gum, and a copy of Aretha Franklin Live at the Fillmore.
WORDS TO LIVE BY: “Teach Your Children Well”
I WROTE THIS SONG: in front of a mirror. It’s difficult to lie straight to your face.
