“I got to know Bo Diddley when I was 15 years old. The first time that I went on tour, I was opening up for BB King. It was my band, then Bo Diddley and then BB King. Bo didn’t bring a band out with him, so after our set, we’d come back out and play with him. I feel a real connection to him.
“Chris suggested this song because it’s one of the few Bo songs that don’t have that famous Bo Diddley beat. I love it. It’s got a great positive message and terrific energy – it just makes you feel good. Brady’s dad, Brady Sr. – he’s a pastor in Shreveport – he came to the studio to check out what was going on. He announced to everybody that he was going to sing this song, and so he did. It’s him and Noah doing it together in the studio.”
