GW Premiere: Chip Greene's "River Song"

This track mixes roadhouse rock & roll and southern soul with a bluesy, backwoods stomp, chronicling the historic 2010 flood of the Cumberland River, which washed its way across many notable Nashville landmarks.

"These songs are little vignettes that look at the changes in Nashville over the past couple years," says Greene, who grew up in nearby McMinnville, TN. "I started to feel like I was losing the sense of the town I grew up around. I've been coming here my whole life. I've worked on Music Row and played local shows for more than a decade, but Nashville has changed a lot recently. And perhaps the beginning of those changes was the flood of 2010."
