There were days when I never thought I would ever be able to find this song again. So now, I'm putting it here for the near infinity, saved for as long as the Internets will keep it safe here. The first time I heard it was on the Tonight Show. Yet for some reason, NBC has chosen to remove this video from circulation, so when I scoured their listing of past performers, I got NOTHING.
The kind of obsession which ensued, the kind in which I wracked my brain cell and scoured my watch history on Youtube, searched for any number of country, bluegrass, NYC, trio, etc. etc. etc. should be a lesson in the following:
- Write shit down
- Write shit down in more than one spot
- Use those 'Add to' buttons on Youtube
- Write shit down in more than two spots
The most maddening part was that I could hear it in my head, but not clearly, just jumbled....but I remember that it gave me chills and that I needed to hear it again. And I know when something dings at my brain, there's a reason and therefore, there was no stopping until I found it again. It's a song that gives me hope. A song that makes me feel when I can't feel anything. A song that helps me keep moving forward. Corny, certainly. True? Definitely.
Listen to it. Over and over and over again until you get it. It won't take but once or twice and then you'll just want to keep hearing that message and that glorious sound.
