Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and musician Boz Scaggs opens up about his love for the Blues in a new episode of AXS TV's "The Big Interview" airing on June 11.

"It was the sounds of escape. It's emotionally a way to forget about one's troubles… so I think there's a joy and a release in that music. I'd say release is probably the most essential quality of that music," Scaggs tells Dan Rather in a clip.

During the interview, Scaggs also opens up about life on the road, his experience in San Francisco's 1960s counterculture scene, dealing with the loss of his home to the Napa fires, the life-changing Ray Charles concert he attended as a teenager, and why he believes his voice has only gotten better with age.

"The Big Interview" airs Tuesday at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT on AXS TV.
