1. Family Way

From the recording Family Way

I was around 7 months pregnant and about half out of my mind...although I was excited, I felt like an emotional basket case a lot of the time! I wrote almost the whole song in one sitting after a Dixie Chicks concert that I had been so psyched for but ended up being quite miserable...bloated, crammed into a tiny seat with no legroom, bursting into tears at odd moments...FELLAS! You don't know what you're missing!  (And, p.s., this is the most-requested song from my daughter!)
