Despite their success, Eddie and Troy remain close to the folks like them—not just family and friends, but their family of fans. In fact, they feel a responsibility to those who have elevated their career to the level where they have earned ACM and CMA Awards, and sold several million albums and been honored with memberships into the Grand Ole Opry and, in April 2015, the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame. Troy explains, “We’ve always been about cutting songs that everybody can identify with and at any given moment go, ‘Hey, that’s me and they get where I’m at right now,’ and maybe get some kind of peace or something that they can grab onto and go, ‘That’s cool that they know exactly what I’m going through’ or ‘Man, they like to party and have a great time on the weekend, just like me.’” Eddie is in agreement with his partner. “I think it’s what a lot of people can identify with when they see us live on stage or they’re listening to an album. They’re like, ‘They’ve actually lived this,’” he says before laughing and adding, “Some things we wish we wouldn’t have done, but sometimes we do it again.”
