In Their Words: “In a way, it felt like some of these songs — especially ‘I’m Gonna Cry’ and ‘Trouble’ — demanded that we make a record for them. They wouldn’t rest until we’d cut them the way they deserved, with a solid posse of electric guitars and fiddles and no-holds-barred vocals and plenty of harmony.” — Emily Miller.

“It’s true that there was never any question which songs were boss in this project, but they needed the counterweight of swingier, quieter tracks to fill out the record as a whole. In the end, we get this great balance of the scale: a wide, sprawling view of our kind of country music.” — Zara Bode
