In Their Words: "'Rest my Head' is my personal reference as a singer/songwriter, that I feel is comparable to an old blues man or folk artist like a Lead Belly or a Woody Guthrie. This industry will age you beyond your years and toughen you like no other. For example, the line 'I've been singing so long, I'm probably better off dead' speaks volumes as to how the many musicians I have met over the years have spoken about their careers. The constant highs and lows of success and failures will most definitely leave you with the need to take some time to go and rest your head." — Brian Ritchey

Instructions: Be careful. This one sneaks up on you.
