This album is a bit of an anthology for me,” Mosley tells Pauseandplay.com. “I pulled out three songs from the New Tradition days that have long been out of print and a couple of songs that I originally wrote and recorded with The Farm Hands. The rest of the album is new songs. Each song is special in its own way. The title track is a true story written about Toad Smith, the local barber in my hometown of Waverly, Tennessee. ‘It Never Gets Old’ is just a simple love song, but my friend Irene Kelley came in and added the most gorgeous harmony. She really made it extra special. And ‘The Deal’ is a unique song because it’s a gospel song but written from the vantage point of The Devil. The instrumental work on it is incredible. Danny Roberts on mandolin, Adam Haynes on fiddle, Aaron McDaris on banjo, Tony Wray on guitar, and Michael Stockton on dobro. The album really is a marker for my career thus far. And it’s sincerely the best thing I’ve ever recorded.”
