  • I've loved Darrell's music since he showed up in Guy Clark's band at the Lyons Folks Fest a dozen years ago. I love it that he writes his own songs, responds to my request for 'Uncle Lloyd' every time, and even waves to my friends when I'm not there. I also love his lyrics. I think they are written for me. For example from 'The Day Before Thanksgiving':

    The day before Thanksgiving back in 1991
    A millionaire let me drive his Mercedes just for fun
    And I drove it with the top down on them Blue Ridge Mountain roads
    He let me keep it thirteen weeks or so
    And I know what he was saying with that car that wasn’t mine
    That I could have one too if I just did not cross the line
    But lines were made for crossing and I was born to crack the code
    And there ain’t no shame in walking down this road
