Trapper Schoep has earned himself a co-write credit on this track with none other than Nobel laureate Bob Dylan. Seems that back in ’61 Bob produced what we might fairly call a minor work, but never completed or recorded it . Eventually the handwritten lyrics were sold at auction, Schoep saw a photo’ and decided to complete the song that celebrated his home state. With permission to co-credit eventually given he, naturally enough, recorded it and produced this slightly Sufjan Stevens-esque track.
