It’s a story song, based on true life, about an abandoned orphan girl who was delivered to a convent as a newborn, and raised into a young woman by the nuns who lived there. Crabtree had told us a few weeks ago that a good friend of his had suggested this story of his grandmother’s life as a song topic. Daniel quickly agreed, took some notes, and it turned into this very agreeable number.
Now, with the assistance of some very talented bluegrass ladies, the music video is available. It was shot by Valerie Smith of Bell Buckle Media, directed and edited by Evan Winsor, and featuring dancing fiddler Hillary Klug as the young adult Sally.
