I wrote this song while sitting in a hammock outside of my house in College Station. I should have been studying for finals, but I couldn’t get this song out of my head, so I figured I’d let it come out through my guitar. I started recording what I was playing on my phone so that I could remember what I was writing later on. As I was playing, one of the trees that I was strapped to straight up collapsed on me and my guitar. I crawled out from the wreckage, pulled my guitar out, and realized I was still recording. I texted the audio file to the rest of the band and a few other friends, and labeled it “The Tree Song”. It obviously stuck. Our producer asked me for the audio file and he threw it in on the second round of mixes.
