In Their Words: “Making this video was just hanging with the boys, sharing stories, laughs, and music. Hayes Carll is a dear friend; we both used to live in the Houston area and I produced his first album, Flowers and Liquor. I introduced him to Texas audiences early on.” — Lisa Morales

“With her talent and her generosity Lisa Morales changed the trajectory of my life. I heard Lisa a few hours before I actually saw her. The Sisters Morales show in Galveston, Texas, was sold out so I sat on the sidewalk and listened to them perform through the windows. Afterwards — when I could finally squeeze into the club — we were introduced by the club owner. When she heard that I was a singer-songwriter, Lisa offered to let me open the next time they came through town. I happily accepted. Eventually she offered more shows across the state. These were my first opportunities to travel for music and to play in front of audiences who had bought a ticket to listen and witness a show. It was all game-changing for me. Some time later Lisa offered to produce my first record and that offer changed the trajectory of my life. I’ll always be grateful to her for her kindness, wisdom, and mentorship.” — Hayes Carll

“I’ve known Lisa for years. When she asked if I’d find a harmony part to sing on a track for a new album, I couldn’t find a suitable part. So I took the liberty of assuming she wouldn’t mind if I wrote a few lines that would make the song a duet. She didn’t bat an eye, even gave me a songwriting credit. At least I think she did. What’s not to love about Lisa Morales?” — Rodney Crowell

“I’ve been a fan of Lisa Morales for such a long time. It was such a treat to get be in this video of this very fine song that she and Rodney wrote. It was a joy to get to spend some time with her, Rodney, and Hayes, and be in their presence!” — Jim Lauderdale
