In Their Words: “I’m simply a big fan of classic Western music. Marty Robbins, Johnny Cash, Eddy Arnold, Bobby Bare, to name a few are huge influences on me, and I believe it shows in my own music. I crafted this cover of ‘Big Iron’ a long while ago and waited for the right time with the right full band sound to bring it together. The goal of this rendition is to honor the masterful songwriting of Marty Robbins by embellishing the impactful moments of its story. Stripping down the arrangement and building it up to an energetic gallop is my way of breathing new life into the song, which I believe should be the goal of any cover. It’s a song by an artist that everyone should know, and oh man is it a blast to play, so I’m here to happily spread it around.” — Nathan Jacques
