Had a fun portrait shoot with Musician Chris Thile at his home for the new issue of Garden & Gun. The interview is featured in the February/March issues “Talk of The South” section and discuss’s both Chris’s music as well as his new role as host of long running public radio program A Prairie Home Companion. We talked about our mutual love of Speyside scotch & the fun he has been having as a new father. Thanks so much to Maggie & the rest of the amazing crew at G&G. Its always a pleasure to contribute to my favorite Southern publication. One of these days ill finally make it to visit the offices in Charleston.

Four years ago, I had the pleasure of seeing these two fine musicians perform together live at UMD. Mid-setlist, they began a cover of my absolute favorite Dylan tune (hell, maybe even my favorite song, period) that ended up being one of the most satisfying and masterfully executed songs I’ve ever heard performed live. I’ve been waiting ever since for them to release a record together, and yesterday that finally happened. To my luck, this was included on the album as the penultimate track and it is every bit as perfect as I remember it.
