“I wrote “Kentucky Turnpike”, with Tim Crouch. I’ve always loved twin-fiddle songs where the two fiddles playing together tell one story. That’s what Tim and I are doing with “Kentucky Turnpike”.
When we got the song finished, it sounded to me like racing down a dark Kentucky highway late at night in a powerful rainstorm with the windshield wipers going full blast and the headlights cutting through the driving rain” - Glen Duncan
