    We are honored to be performing at a show honoring the 46th anniversary of the release of Sweetheart of the Rodeo, The Byrds' unbelievably influential album from 1968 that Gram Parsons had such a big hand in. Four bands will play the album in its entirety; we get to play Pretty Boy Floyd, Hickory Wind, 100 Years from Now, and The Blue Canadian Rockies. Go figure: a hugely successful pop band decides to put out an album of bluegrass and country songs.
