“I’m not saying we’re perfect – nobody’s perfect – but we both get it.
“I won’t be touring for certain months next year because she’s going to be shooting a movie, so I’ll be playing Daddy on set, and then she’ll do the same to me.

“I think it’s the best show I’ve done in my life,” he said.
“I love recording studios and filming in front of cameras, but it’s not the same as putting thousands of people into one room who have been through a lot of hardship and need that connection.
“What I want to be, never preach, is a uniformer. It’s not just about singing good songs or telling a joke. Especially in the times we live in, I’m really trying to unite people and uplift them.”
