In Their Words: “I wanted the video for ‘Destitute’ to convey the bittersweet relationship that I have with leaving. Just when I start to settle in again, it’s time to pack up and go. As hard as it is to find any routine in my home life, what I really love to do is go out and make the rounds. Touring has become like a nightly reunion. My friends are out there, and I get to go see them, check in, play them my latest, and hopefully make enough bucks to keep that roof over my head that I rarely get to enjoy.
I’m doing better now with the paradoxical relationship of wanting to be at home when I’m on the road and wanting to be on the road when I’m home. ‘Destitute’ is a song about not being such. It’s a song about counting your blessings, putting one foot in front of the other, and keeping on.” — Christopher Paul Stelling
