Description
Some more alt.country/americana for you.
I guess life can be like driving down the highway. The further you go, the more bugs get squished on your windshield. More and more of life's detritus blocks your view of the road ahead. At some point you miss the important stuff; turn offs, gas stations and what have you. Some of those turns can never be returned to. I guess we've all found ourselves in a situation we never saw coming.
My lovely Epiphone Dot Studio appears on this one, for a change. I don't play that guitar anywhere near enough. The rest is the usual but I've flirted with piano again, to round out the sound and give it more of a band feel.
