Jimi: “Family, health.”

Kimberly: “Babies, family.”

Karen: “We’ve lost so many people this year in the country music world, behind-the-scenes folks that people might not know that were just precious to us all. It really sobers you up that you have to live in the moment and take advantage of being around family and friends.”

Philip: “Yes, living in the moment.”
