Story To Tell (Little Bird)

Album: Lee Brice (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This is one of two tracks on Lee Brice's eponymous fourth album that features contributions from American musician Warren Haynes ("I Don't Smoke" is the other one). Brice told Billboard that working with Haynes was a dream come true.

    "I got to be friends with one of my heroes in Edwin McCain (who appears with Brice and Haynes on this track)," he explained. "I asked him about Warren one day because I wanted to do some slide on the record, and of course, Warren Haynes is a legend. So, Warren came in, and it was almost like hanging out with my uncle, except my uncle that plays guitar like you have never seen before. He was so approachable and down to earth. But, yet, he had stories to tell. For lack of better words, it was an honor to be in the studio and let him play what he plays, but also to be able to talk to him."

    Warren Haynes is best known for his work as long-time guitarist with The Allman Brothers Band and as founding member of the jam band Gov't Mule.
