DESCRIPTION:

Co-written and sung by mandolinist Darren Nicholson of the award-winning Balsam Range quintet, this song is archetypal bluegrass—a happy-sounding song with miserable lyrics. In this case, the lyric’s narrative is built around a “get out of town” theme, punctuated with plenty of opportunities for the group to showcase the energetic, inventive playing that’s earned its participants acclaim from every corner of the bluegrass tent. Collaborators include a slew of multiple GRAMMY/IBMA-winning artists.
