“Let the Wild Stay Free” is a song I wrote about being able to let go and being free in life. Some of the things you love most, you can’t hold on to and if you tried to do, you might lose the very thing that made you love them in the first place. A lot of special things you know are temporary as are all things in life, I suppose. That’s some of what that song meant to me when writing it. I thought of picked flowers, lightning bugs in jars or people who just can’t stay. I guess I have always been a bit of a free spirit and liked to roam and ramble too. I think I finished the melody to this one while out on the road on a Crooked Road tour with my folks. I played the old time banjo on this number; Frank Rische was on guitar, and Billy Hurt Jr. on fiddle.
