Jonny Lang on Fatherhood and Not Listening to the Blues

Jonny Lang is best known for his blues guitar licks and vocals. So it may come as a surprise that he's not listening to that genre much these days. Instead, he says he goes for the likes of James Taylor and Stevie Wonder.

In this interview, Lang discusses his musical tastes as well as his most recent album Fight for My Soul. He says he's also writing material for his next record, but those efforts are often usurped by fatherhood.

"Right now, I'm really focused on my kids," Lang says. "I'm trying to be a good dad and as balanced as I can since I'm out here so much of the time."
