Thanks for posting this!

The link to this song and article stated its a 15th of September release, I believe the other thread about Gregg stated 8th of September.

Oh, man --- I needed that.

What an excellent tune --- right up there already with his very best, imo.

Bravo, Gregg

That song by itself is better than the entirety of Low Country Blues. God I hope the rest of Southern Blood is similar in quality.

This song is amazing, truly rivals his best, it brought me to tears. Can hardly wait for the release of the album. Some great tunes, Willin is a favorite from Lowell George, and the Johnny Jenkins tune should be superb. Plus Song for Adam. Wow.

I hope TTB covers.

Same, the lyrics are really haunting / touching. Glad he left us with this wonderful music.

great tune!
The track listing for the album is awesome. Can't wait to hear it, although it will be quite emotional

kinda like Warren Zevon The Wind

I like the lyrics," You and I both know, the road is my only true friend."

I like the harmonizing guitars, very Allman esque. Miss hearing that stuff. Nice tasty solo by Scott. When he plays at times he kind of has a Dickey feel. I have heard that on more than a few occasions. Nothing wrong with that.

Actually jzfunk the intro riff/hook reminded me of 80's DDT in the GAB. Nothing wrong with that either.

Yeah, I can see that. I was just more so focusing in on the twin guitar harmony. Reminds me of Dickey.

If this first song which brought me to tears is any indication we are in for a masterpiece of a record.
