Thoughts on writing "We Do It In A Field" by Granger Smith:
Several months ago I was playing a private birthday party in the middle of absolute nowhere Texas. I asked several of the young guys there what they did on the weekends, since they were so far from any town/bar/club that we might play. They looked at me like I was crazy…"we party in a field of course," they shot back.
At that moment it was like I had been lost in the honky-tonk circuit for so long that I forgot how this all started for me in high school and college. We didn't go downtown, find parking spots, pay cover charges…no, we did it in a field. And wasn't that so much better?
