“My wife, Beckie heard the Johnson Mountain Boys performing this song on the radio and thought it would be a great song for me to do. When I listened to it, I could hear my buddy, Del McCoury cutting the tenor the meanest ever! Then the Del McCoury Band came in and we recorded it! This recording is special to me because Del, Ronnie, Rob, Jason, and Alan are good friends of mine. We all go way back. When it comes to making traditional Bluegrass music, there’s none better. I’m honored to have them on my project.”– David Parmley
