Colorado Bound tells the story of my grandfather, Al Kosak, driving from Duluth, Minnesota out to the Pacific Ocean in the early 1950s. He took the family Ford station wagon and kept his speed at 35 miles per hour the whole way since he’d calculated that would give him the best gas mileage. I don’t know how long it took him, but he eventually made it all the way to the California coast.
The wallpaper pattern used in the Colorado Bound single artwork comes from the Diamond Belle Saloon, the Strater Hotel’s iconic piano bar in downtown Durango. It’s both a piece of local history and a nod to our close relationship with the hotel as the annual headquarters of the Durango Bluegrass Meltdown festival. Each of the upcoming singles from our Small Towns album will feature a different wallpaper pattern from the Strater.
