This jazz influenced song on Sugarcane Jane's album Dirt Road's End
is another collaborative effort by their guitarist and singer, Anthony Crawford, as well as renowned songwriter, Buzz Cason
In our interview with Crawford
, he explained how this song came into fruition. "I had that music," he said. "I was just interested in a certain tuning on my guitar. I tuned my guitar to Open D and came up with that lick. I didn't really have a lyric at the time. I was just doing what I guess people call scatting. I didn't know if it was jazzy, but it's been described as scatting and somewhat of a jazz thing. It was just the fact that I didn't have a lyric yet, but I felt like singing something. It just wound up becoming part of the song."
Crawford went on to reveal Cason's influential role in writing it. He said: "Buzz has a brilliant way of finding the perfect words to go with whatever it is that I've written on the guitar. That's the funny thing about it: the music and the lyrics go so hand-in-hand with each other, but it's coming from two people. It's hard to explain how that happened. It wasn't like Buzz and I sat down and we're saying, 'Okay. What do you think we ought to say right here?' It didn't go down that way. I would just write a piece of music to be doing something."
