Nick Hutson - Forked Deer River Bottom
The Forked (pronounced as a two-syllable word … “fore-kid”) Deer River and its streams and tributaries spread out across much of West Tennessee. Recently, I was reading about bottomland, and it explained that you don’t have to plow it so deep because the land is so fertile. This is a song about the solitude of sitting on a tractor and plowing a bottomland field ... and a reminder to my younger self to not fret so much because “you’re on fertile ground.”
