"David Bankston is one of the top five songwriters in America, surrounding our lyric traditions and then transcending them with songs older than you will ever be. Being a tall teller of truths, he invents nothing but the images that burst from the depths of the Southern mind. And it's all wrapped in melodies that are not forgotten. Modern songwriters write from the peaks of passion, but Bankston lures you from the valleys, those deceptive places of shadows where strange things float by on the rivers, and the sun goes down very early.'"
