"Away From My Big City Dreams is a well traveled road literally and figuratively, a theme sown across not only country and American roots music, but across our culture as a whole, which is no real surprise. It’s a return to fresh air and humble beginnings; before iPhones ruled the earth. We all have our own story that relates to this in one way or another, which is how this song came to be. The best songs sort of just write themselves, you know? And this song was as quick to wrap up as it was to get started, took us all of 30 minutes or so. I walked in door with a verse, Mikey (William Surly) had a melody and a chorus, and Jeff (Gator Bill) had another verse. Turns out we were all in different stages of writing the same damn song. We released it into the wild a few days later at a show. Since then its been a mainstay in our set.”
