It's like Old Crow Medicine Show showed up halfway through Springsteen's recording of Nebraska.
These songs were written and recorded in the early 2000s (when I was in my early twenties), before I was married and long before I had children. These songs cover a lot of ground: the thrill of a new relationship, the pain of a relationship running its course, thoughts on the death of my grandfather, encouragement for a younger brother who was to become a father sooner than planned, getting cleaned out at a Mississippi casino, and the earliest realization that I had a drinking problem.

Most of the tracks are sparse, featuring mostly acoustic guitar with some harmonica and banjo in places.
