That’s just the best thing about music for me,just playing stadiums and seeing the way people react to your songs.I’ve had people cry their eyes out telling me the album’s changed their lives and stuff like that. I just wrote those songs in my bedroom messing about and it’s making people happy.That’s the best bit about it.” - Van Mccann
