Billy Strings refers to his album ‘Renewal’ as being emotional
In an interview with Bluegrass Situation in October 2021, Billy Strings spoke about his new album Renewal. It’s very emotional. It could be tweaked endlessly. It’s almost like building a house with cards. Yes, you could add another tower. It could fall. I’ve always doubted myself. And I still do. This album made me realize that I’m doing fine, kid. “You just have to keep going.
When asked about his career, Billy Strings stated that it has been an amazing journey. “I started touring when I was 19 and played 200 gigs per year. For a while, I felt invincible, untouchable. I believed I could drive the van and sell the merchandise, book the hotels, settle down at the end, write the songs, perform shows, and do everything. All of it fell on my shoulders.
