Tylor and the Train Robbers are bringing some bull-eye roots rock Americana songwriting to the table. Any quality music fan should dig right in.
This song has been in the making for about 10 years, but I never really felt like it was finished until now. I always came back to it though because it seemed to connect with people, so I kept working on it until I finally landed on a version that felt ready for this album. It has evolved and changed a lot over the years, but some of the original pieces stuck. The catchy guitar riff and the overall message of the song, encouraging people to stay true to themselves and not allow outside forces to influence them too much, remained. — Tylor Ketchum
