In Their Words: “I wrote ‘A Thousand Miles’ nearly a decade ago when I was living in New Orleans. It was inspired by a new love and was one of those tunes that seemed to write itself one night sitting on the front porch. The essence of the song is really about choosing love and hoping for the best. That lover and I have long since parted ways but the sentiment still feels relevant. The recording features Shaye Cohn (Tuba Skinny) on fiddle and harmony vocals, Megan Coleman on drums, John James Tourville (The Deslondes) on pedal steel and electric guitar, Dennis Crouch on upright bass, and Casey Wayne McAllister on Wurlitzer.” — Erika Lewis
