Devonshire and Crown
 
We've done a few tours with NUFAN over the years and always had a great time playing shows with them. I definitely empathized with Tony in that we both had young daughters at home and being gone from them was rough.  When he passed, like everyone else, we were heartbroken.  So when they approached us about being on the album, we of course wanted to do whatever we could to help Tony's family.  "Devonshire & Crown" is an especially poignant song because the lyrics seem to be about being on the road and missing home and family, and it just proves what a great songwriter and lyricist Tony was.  His songs are always at the same time heartfelt, brutally honest, funny and engaging.  We basically just took his original acoustic version and added electric guitars and amped it up a little.  It's a fun take on the song, but it was meant to be played the way Tony recorded it, with just him and his acoustic guitar and honest, real emotion.  He will definitely be missed.
