In Their Words: “My son, Lucas, gave me a Gibson Hummingbird guitar and one morning as I was playing it in our log home living room, there was a hummingbird zooming around my wife Judy’s feeder and the muse said, ‘Here ya go. It’s obvious…write it.’ So I did in about 20 minutes! As played it for the first time, I wondered who should play and sing on it and the only name that popped up in my head was…Peter Rowan! So I sent it to him and asked if he would play on it. I’m guessing he probably played his licks on a Martin D-18 but whatever it was, it was perfect and I am so grateful he said yes.” — Ray Wylie Hubbard
