This past weekend, Lou Reid and Carolina began filming an accompanying music video to be released this summer. On June 16, the band will perform on The Crooked Road Tour at the Natural Tunnel State Park in Duffield, Va.

Jack Hinshelwood, Executive Director of The Crooked Road said, “If we had commissioned someone to write a song to capture the essence of The Crooked Road and the Mountains of Music Homecoming, they couldn’t have done better than the song on this recording. To have one of the most admired groups in bluegrass doing it, was a miraculous alignment of the planets!”
