  • By Team Ritter

“I wanted the vibe of the recording to be different in musical arrangement, but I wanted the living, breathing side of ‘Rosalie’ to reflect Smithers’ own live delivery of the song,” Ritter notes. “A lot can come through that is real when we stop trying to be precise.”

Check out this interview with Josh on CMT Edge about Josh’s cover of Rosalie on the new Chris Smither tribute record, Link of Chain: A Tribute to Chris Smither.

“About six months ago I was hit by a song on the New York Thruway. The whole thing. Verses, bridge, a witty one-liner or two. Nothing like that had ever happened with such force. It was the first raindrop in a thunderstorm that I’m thankful continues unabated. I thought these nights at KCD might be a good chance to try some of them out. This is very rare for me. I don’t normally go in for showing songs before they’re fully done, but what the Hell, you only live once.”
