As beautifully crafted and thoughtfully produced as any of Jonathan Byrd’s records, this podcast expands on the Byrd universe taking us deeper into the mind and music community of one of our greatest songwriters, poets, thinkers and dreamers. Check it out.
Loved the song Watching Football with my Dad. It could have been written as a sad song about a father growing old, but it is more of a celebration of the long life shared together. It reminds me of the many years my father and I watched ACC basketball. We pulled for different teams but still loved each other. Not an easy task. Even with the frailties at the end, it’s hard to ever feel sad remembering a life so full.
Wild Ponies with Rowan
