Q: What called to you about playing a special ed teacher?

A: First off, the year before I did a movie with Sam Elliott; we did our first Hallmark Hall of Fame. We worked together on “Tombstone” 20 years ago. It was such a great experience ... . When my guy called up and said, “Hey, they want you to be the leader in a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie.” To have that happen twice in almost two years was really flattering, (even) before I read the script. It would have to be pretty bad for me to not want to do it. It was really touching. First thing I did was I tried to go online to find Mike’s (Kersjes, the teacher he portrays) home number. I emailed my manager and said, “I have to do this one. Don’t let it get away.”

Q: Are you still making music?

A: I just made my second record. I am really excited. That is why I was in Nashville, putting (down) background vocals. I thought I made a pretty good first record. I am proud of it. I don’t play piano or guitar on my own records; I hire the best guitar and piano players and drummers. The drummer and guitarist play on Black Crowes. This (album) is a little more rock and roll. Last one was straight-up country.

Q: What’s it like being back home in West Virginia?

A: In California, people are a little more guarded. In Wheeling, people just tell you how it is.
