In Their Words: “A few years ago I came across a phrase in Ernie Pyle’s book Home Country about his time as a roving reporter where he described the summer wind in the Midwest as ‘one of the most melancholy things in all life.’ That line was the seed that grew into this song, but the wind we’re talking about is the wind that pushes you out onto the open road. Being the Crossroads of America and all, I’m sure a lot of folks have fond memories of our home state, even if you were just passing through to get where you were going. We tried to capture that feeling with this video, made up of real 8mm footage from Indiana road trips in the late 1970s. Sad Max Senteney of Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band played those hard-stomping drums on the track, and we always knew we wanted some sawing bluegrass fiddle to play off Dan’s mandolin, so it was lucky for us that Michael Cleveland — by our count the best bluegrass fiddle player in the world — is also from Southern Indiana and was kind enough to join us on it.” — Zach Riddle
