Big Red Barns
I wrote the first verse and chorus while driving through Kansas on I-70 toward the big bluegrass festival in Winfield. My mother grew up in Kansas, so I’ve always had a fondness for the state. I noticed many large red barns accompanied by very modest white houses. I wrote the second verse at the Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival in Winfield Kansas while sitting on a hill at the edge of the festival.
