This song was recorded about a year after Pick ( my record with The Travelin’ McCoury’s) came out. The idea was to push another song from the Pick album to radio and to have an unreleased single to accompany it and I had this song, The Drop, which my wife and I made up while discretely drinking on the beach last summer while our kids got pounded by waves. So, I pitched it to the The McCoury’s and flew to Nashville to record it. Turns out I liked the song way more than everybody else did…. so the original recording of this song sat lonely in some dank dark corner of a hard drive.
