"It's kind of like, you ain't got money, they ain't got time," he admits, and it does contain "a couple of digs to a few people," but he declines to name them. His mama should be proud.
  • "That song," says Bo Bice, "is my tribute to Billy Gibbons and ZZ Top. Because Billy's one of my big influences on guitar." (Read more in our interview with Bo Bice.)
