I was going for a kind of Lefty Frizzell vocal on this-- There are tons of singers I love, and I've borrowed from quite a few, but Lefty remains one of my main inspirations. When we did this at the Hangtown show in Nashville, I was pretty nervous-- but as soon as I heard my voice in the monitors, I knew it was going to be ok because it sounded sorta like Lefty. This is one of the few times I got to play a Telecaster on the Hangtown album. I love Pat McInerney's drumming on this. Killer fiddle too, by
