And the way I feel about music, I think these musicians - I do it myself - each one is expressing his past, his present, what he should have been, and what he hopes to be. And he’s expressing all of his sorrows, all of his happiness. - if you study him close you can almost read his life. And I think when they’re all playing good, clean, honest music - banjo-picking, guitar-playing, fiddling, what have you - I think you’re just as close to heaven on this earth as you’ll ever be. If you’ve got the music in you. You know what I mean? I believe that. I don’t mean I put that above a hereafter or above an eternal life. But in this
world, that’s my Paradise. In this world.
from the 2005 re-release of the 1974 Rounder LP, Wilson Douglas: The Right Hand Fork of Rush’s Creek
