In Their Words: "'Husk' was one of the very first songs I wrote for this new album. I heard the verses in my head almost like Cat Stevens doing soft country-rock. And then Heather [McEntire from Mount Moriah] just owns the choruses. With the mandolin, fiddle, and pedal steel all weaving around each other, I just didn't want the outro to ever end." — Michael Rank
Instructions: Build yourself a campfire for this one … preferably in a mountainous region.
