Making of "River Song"

Johnny said "This song came over me when I was in Park City Utah. We were playing on at large ranch on 10 acres and there was a river running right through the middle of it. I was overcome by the sound and just the whole feeling of the environment. I loved that place. Anyway, I asked if I could come back the next day and write this song, which Bryon Friedman and I did in about 45 minutes....seems like those are the best ones."
