In Their Words: “I had booked some time to write in Nashville and was having a hell of a time finding songs, inspiration, lyrics, any of it. I was out for a drive, having a bit of an existential crisis to be honest, feeling down about everything.… when suddenly I nearly slammed into two horses in the middle of Franklin Pike on a Saturday night. They walked slowly across the road, totally oblivious to all these speeding cars around them. I pulled over and tried to corral them away from anything that might hurt them, and eventually they ran off into the night.

“Seeing those horses really stirred something in me, made me want to forget about whatever was troubling me before that moment. I guess it fast-tracked me into the present, where I realized that the only thing that mattered was what was standing right in front of me: two beautiful wild horses in the middle of a highway on a Nashville Saturday night. About five days later, I found the song I was gonna write about the whole experience β€” and then, one by one, I found each song that you’ll hear on Consider the Speed with ease.” — Terra Lightfoot
