Emily – “All of these lines across my face tell you the story of who I am. So many stories of where I’ve been and how I got to where I am. These stories don’t mean anything when you’ve got no one to tell them to.” – Brandi Carlile “The Story”

Ben – “But when that open road starts to callin’ me

There’s somethin’ o’er the hill that I gotta see

Sometimes it’s hard but you gotta understand

When the Lord made me, He made a Ramblin’ Man

I love to see the towns a-passin’ by

And to ride these rails, ‘neath God’s blue sky

Let me travel this land from the mountains to the sea

‘Cause that’s the life I believe, He meant for me” – Hank Williams Sr. “Ramblin’ Man”
