developed an impressive story at Americana
radio." It ultimately made it to #23 in
the Radio & Records Americana Chart, to #2 on
the Progressive Country Chart, to #10 on the
Roots Music Report and to #7 on the Country

and the rest of the world took notice as the
song was added to 33 international play lists
and reached #17 on the European Country Music
Association's "Top 200 Chart".
