Ryan Adams "When Pigs Fly"
Published Sep 03, 2013Songwriter/author/illustrator Sandra Boynton roped in a number of artists for her recent Frog Trouble CD/book, with one being alt-country vet Ryan Adams. Their collaborative track "When Pigs Fly" is available now as a free download to help push the project.
"When Pigs Fly" finds Adams delivering heartfelt lyrics atop gently plucked acoustics, electric piano and some strings. It's a subtle, if sad, number, and you can stream or download it, along with other collaboration with Ben Folds and Kacey Musgraves, over here. You can also watch a making-of video down below.
Frog Trouble also features guest appearances from the likes of Mark Lanegan, Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Alison Krauss, Dwight Yoakam, Fountains of Wayne and more. According to a press release, Frog Trouble features "some mighty fine down-home American music, with a whole lot of gumption and heart."
