Back in the Saddle

This was Gene Autry’s theme song, and we enjoy playing it as a change of pace. I wish it were longer. Chris usually throws in a great lick he learned from Tony Rice on his recording of “More Pretty Girls than One” with Ricky Skaggs.

One of our distinctives as a musical group is that we sing all our songs without a trace of irony. We play songs like this because we love them, not because we are poking fun at the tradition. There are other similar songs we stay away from because we haven’t found a way to love them.
