Bramble Rose, the debut album by Tift Merritt, celeÂ¬brates its 14 year anniversary with a deluxe re-release on limited edition vinyl, featuring reimagined artwork. Don Henley recalls of its title track, â€œIâ€™d wanted to reÂ¬cord that song ever since I heard itâ€, before releasing the song on his 2015 album Cass County (featuring guest vocalists Miranda Lambert and Mick Jagger).
â€œThere was so much sweetness in that time, something pure in making a first record. We were so excited to be in the studio together, to be in Los Angeles â€” everything was ahead and everything was happening for the first time. When I think of how all the miles Iâ€™ve seen began with this little seed, it gives me a great deal of hope. I could tell you 1,000 tender stories from those days. But maybe that is what those songs are.â€ - Tift Merritt
