Found this on the Carman Facebook page (talking about his cat trying to wake him up...).
"He doesn't understand. I'm a musician. I have no 6.00 am on my clock... anywhere."

P.S. -- For those who are interested, Carman is currently raising money to record a new praise and worship album. Details on his Facebook page if you'd like to be a part of that.
