Here, Hayes Carll tells the story of a lovestruck guy from Beaumont, Texas who recalls his encounter with a girl in a Houston bar. Asked during a Reddit AMA why he made the man a Beaumont native, Carll replied:
"When I lived in Crystal Beach I would go up to Beaumont a lot to play and hang out. It felt like just the right amount of distance from Houston to work for that song."
"Pink Cadillac" was a B-side for Bruce Springsteen in 1984, but after Aretha Franklin sang about pink Cadillacs on "Freeway Of Love" the following year, Natalie Cole covered the song and had a hit with it in 1988.
George Harrison's 1971 song "Bangla Desh" was the first major charity single. It was part of a concert held to bring relief to the people of Bangladesh, who were fighting for independence and suffering from a famine.
