— “We framed out the first verse, but nothing was really decided or set in stone,” Leigh said. “We were coming back to Nashville a few weeks later ... He said, ‘Yeah, take it home.’ I don’t think we had a lot of hope in it. But he said, ‘Let’s get back together in a couple weeks and do something, tweak it a little bit and work on it.’”

On stage, Eric and Leigh were joined by Mike Barber on upright bass, Clayton Campbell on fiddle and Jesse Cobb, filling in for Jesse Brock on mandolin.

The Gibson Brothers head to Massachusetts this weekend for a couple concerts before traveling to North Carolina next week for the IBMA World of Bluegrass convention and the Sept. 26 IBMA awards ceremony. The band is nominated for eight IBMA awards, the most of any bluegrass group this year.
