“Dillsboro Blues” is a hillbilly, moody blues tune Nicholson wrote in honor of his mother. It’s about the little town in Western North Carolina where she was born and raised. The instrumental tune represents struggles; the ups and downs of a hard life and the willingness to keep fighting to persevere. “She’s got true grit and is an inspiration to me,” says Nicholson. “Love you, Mom!”
