Silver Lake 66 “Blue Earth County” – Listen

Maria Francis and Jeff Overbo combine an amalgamation of classic country, folk and blues throughout the music they create as Silver Lake 66.  On this single, from their album ‘Ragged Heart‘, we find the duo speeding down an endless sweltering stretch of highway in a ‘73 convertible heading for the big lights of LA,  It’s inspired by a real life-changing decision to leave the Midwest and head across the country, and it pounds along as the dream gets ever closer.
