In Their Words: “We love traditional bluegrass with all of our heart. That is part of the reason we chose to release this Lester Flatt/Earl Scruggs song. When we met our second banjo player Jesse Blue Eads (we have two on stage with us usually; Tommy Drinkard plays the other banjo) we were busking and this was a tune that we all knew. We recorded this version in one take after a 55-date tour. On the way to the Palomino Recording Studio our van broke down, so we got the car towed. Then when we arrived at the studio, the bridge on the bass had fallen off and cracked. It was ‘one of those days.’ This all contributed to the raw feeling in the room as we recorded.” — Kenny Feinstein, Water Tower
