“I had an interesting time growing up; My father, Garrie Vereen, worked for the band Widespread Panic for pretty much my entire life. I started going to shows with my friends on my own in 2001 and that’s when this song started to become very special to me… When the band would bust it out I would stop whatever I was doing and go backstage to sit with my father just to let him know I wasn’t getting into too much trouble.  

Garrie tragically left us earlier this year and it inspired me to learn to play and sing this song in his honor.  

So here it is, me pouring out my heart for my pops! RIP Garo…”
