Indy: Your latest CD, This Old Road, sounds very spontaneous ... you had just been invited by producer Don Was to try out a new recording setup he had gotten, right?

KK: I'm sure I wouldn't have got back [to recording] when I did for this last album if Don hadn't asked me to stop by. We cut it in about an hour and a half.

Indy: You tour solo these days. Do you prefer playing solo acoustic to having a band?

KK: I had more fun, I think, sometimes with my own band. But there's a pleasure to doing it this way, too. It's freedom, I think. The thing that I think works is that it puts the focus on the song. ... I can interpret my own stuff, and so far no one's thrown anything at me.

Indy: You've said that the goal of a songwriter is to give a piece of yourself in the songs. Is This Old Road more personal than your other albums?

KK: You know, I feel all of [the albums] are. From the time I went to Nashville, I was trying to tell the truth as I saw it. ... The ones that were resonating with other people were ones that resonated with me. I guess that's as good as it can get for a songwriter.

At the Pikes Peak Center on Aug. 1.
