In Their Words: “I wrote this song for my nephew, Brazos (who was named after the Brazos river). I wanted it to be a constant reminder of how strong he can be especially when being tough isn’t easy. I can’t even imagine how hard it is being a kid today. I want him to remember that, like a river, he could shape mountains, instead of mountains shaping him. This song and that bigger message mean a lot to me. It would be really easy to let the last year define us; everything we did or didn’t do. But sometimes it’s a choice to carve through the mountain. For me, I can’t wait. This album has been a long time coming and I’m ready to get back on the road in whatever capacity. Lots of work went into getting this album ready and I’m ready to see America again from a van window.” — Ross Cooper
