I wrote this song on May 17, 2016 which was the day Guy Clark died and also mine and Sarah’s 13th wedding anniversary. I gave it kind of a cowboy feel and the lyrics tangle through truth, love, and death. Around the time of this recording a friend sent me a track to listen to off an R.E.M. record from 1996 called New Adventures In High-Fi. I had never heard this record and was blown away. Huge distorted guitars, tight rhythm section, and Stipe’s vocal soaring over the top. Now I had a direction for the recording and brought on longtime Dyrty Byrds bass player Mike “Spanky” McCluer (also plays on Rooming House) and couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. Micah Munro as usual sends it in to the stratosphere with her backing vocals.
