The songwriter told 95.5 KLOS radio station last year that he and his wife, Courtney, and 2two-year-old daughter, Ruby, were leaving LA and moving to Wyoming.

(Neue Focus) “Everybody is extremely outdoors-driven — fishing, hunting, hiking, going on the river, going up the lake. Everyone’s extremely healthy. And there’s no entertainment business here, so you’re not dealing with any of that kind of stuff — you’re just dealing with blue-collar people. I relate to it ’cause I came from Idaho in the ’70s, which it’s 40 minutes to Idaho from where we live. And it’s a lot of the same environment. I go back, I go on the road, I still see these beautiful cities, but as far as being a musician and a painter and a person who writes books, I felt it was maybe time, and a better place to raise my daughter,” he explained.
