what was garth the dad like? what was that like during those years? >> it's cool. i will tell you -- i was lucky enough to be at every practice, every rehearsal, every school function. my kids will go "oh, my god, he was at every practice." all that stuff. so i think the way they see it and the way i see it is probably different but i'm hoping after i'm gone from this world hopefully they'll go "oh, i get it. dad was at everything." because that's what it was with my parents. my parents was at everything i did. >> did you miss music a lot during those years or were you playing and doing things here and there? >> you're still doing your thing. you know, the charity functions, foundation functions never stop so you still show up once or twice a year and get to play. that was great. but i have to tell you, no offense to music whatsoever, nothing compares to being a dad so it was like leaving maui to go to honolulu. i don't know how to say it. [ laughter ] it was like -- i love to play music but right now i have to tell you there's nothing better than this.

and those are days you can't get back. >> there's a song on your current record that you played in the earlier hours about -- about moms and it's so moving. i've listened a couple times and every time i get misty eyed. you must have had such an incredible connection with your mom. tell me about how that song feels. >> your mom is your best friend. i can't tell you how many times i've sucked, fallen flat on my face and my mom goes "i thought you were great." mom believed you could fly. dad believed if you were going to fly it would take work. so realism and a dreamy upbringing. all us kids have that input. >> do you think about her when you sing that song? >> i think about her when i raise my own kids. i was t!lking to a friend of mine and i said "i hate to sound like my dad" but i knew it was coming and here it came. >> beautiful.

also earlier in the piece you and j.t., justin timberlake, were rocking that song "friends in low places. " it seems like that song hit so many places. that looked magical. what was going on? >> first of all, him and anybody is magical. but he was o great. you go to one of his shows and you're having a great time and can't think it gets any better and then the whole stage splits and comes over your head and you're going "are you kidding me?" and it goes to a whole different level. his crowd, his show, his musi ans,veis band guys, all of them top notch. >> and somehow with everything you're doing you get charity work in. >> foundation is what it's all about. kids, that's where i love it. you talk about teammates for kids, this is our 15th year and we love it. we deal in inner city outreach and education, health for children and every charity out there is worthy, every one of them is. i'm just a kid charity. i love kids. >> when i f st got here this morning one of our security
