My husband and I saw you last night in Chatham, NJ and we thoroughly enjoyed the show. I know you reference Robert Earl Keen on your new album in the Texas Love song. I can't help but notice how very similar (almost identical) the melody in "Hometown USA" is to his song "Paint the Town Beige."
Was this done on purpose?
Warmest of regards and thanks again for such a great show last night,
At first I thought, What? But now I see the 2nd half of the chorus is quite similar. Both songs follow a fairly standard country-song framework. Thanks for listening so closely!
Hi Karen,I am in buffalo for my fathers funeral and stayed to see Slaid since there are no Denver dates. I was hoping you could ask him to play Temporary for my father Carmen Longobardi. I wanted to play it at funeral but church said no. Just thought I would Ask. Thank you,
