David Rawlings “Cumberland Gap” – Listen

New music from David Rawlings is always a bit of a treat and this Southern gothic tune appears on the singer-songwriter’s new album ‘Poor David’s Almanack,’ which is due out August 11th. “That song was written a little later than the first batch of songs for this record,” Rawlings tells Rolling Stone Country. “It started out as a groove and melody and chords. The music felt like it had some kind of adventurous feeling, or a feeling of pioneering. I had been working to come up with a title or a theme or hook. One night as I was sitting playing through the music, the ‘Cumberland Gap’ words sprung to mind.” Read more about it over at Rolling Stone.
