Before My Show w/ Allen, Mack, Myers, Moore at Five Star Dive Bar in Elkhart, Indiana a week ago I got the chance to hang w/ Zach and Zack and talk about music and lyrics...definitely an awesome experience getting to talk to two amazing songwriters about some of our favorite songs and why they're our favorites :)
Got me thinking on my way home about my favorite tunes. One of them is an old Lefty Frizzell song made popular by Johnny Cash and later by the Dave Matthews Band.
It's called "Long Black Veil" and what I love most about it is the hauntingly beautiful story that paints a picture in your head almost like a classic novel. I've always pictured the scenes in this song to be happening on a dark rainy night so with the dreary weather here in CT today, this tune was ringing in my head all day.
So I figured I'd record a quick version for you all as I haven't played it in a long time :)
And tomorrow I hit the road again for a few weeks with Zach Myers of Shinedown, Zack Mack and J.R. Moore of Ingram Hill starting at Hashtag Bar in Staten Island, New York and ending in May all the way in Tennessee!!!
Until then, please enjoy this video and thank you all for being a part of this amazing journey :)
