MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: Merle Haggard in Cherokee, NC, 2014. He commands a stage like nobody’s business.
I WROTE THIS SONG BECAUSE… Most of my songs speak a different sort of yearning; loss, regret, that kind of thing. I wanted to write something light-hearted.. I think this song has just enough of that yearning or longing spirit without complaining about anything.
