Chris Dollar, who is one of the main songwriters for the band joined then band in 2018 comments below:
My first tour with the Henhouse Prowlers took us on a six week tour overseas. It was the farthest I’d ever been from home and the longest my wife and I had ever been apart. It still holds that record too. Wherever the gig, there is always a long stretch of highway between us which inspired this song. Traveling is a wonderful thing we get to do, but coming home is the best feeling. My family, the endless highway, and my Bloomington home are responsible for this tune – Chris Dollar.

The band had a ton of fun with this feisty number, opening with a blazing call/response motif from the guitar and mandolin. The energy is infectious and true to form from a band that spends a lot of time touring and playing music together – Stephen Mougin, producer.

About Henhouse Prowlers:
Founded 18 years ago with the simple desire to play original and powerful bluegrass, this quartet now finds themselves at the intersection of performance, diplomacy and education. On stage, the group’s enthralling performances give audiences a sense of how much they love what they do. On record – including their 2021 release and ninth full length album, The Departure – the band explores their collective life experiences through songwriting and intricate instrumentation. While bluegrass is the undeniable foundation of the Prowlers music, the band bends and squeezes the traditional form into a sound all their own.
Working with the U.S. State Department and under their own nonprofit, Bluegrass Ambassadors, the Prowlers have toured over 25 countries across the globe. The group’s experiences with people and musicians across Africa, Asia, Europe, and The Middle East have shaped the band’s world view and broadened the group’s direction towards bridging cultural gaps with music, educational programs and workshops. Using traditional American music as a foundation, connecting folk music and cultures the world over, the Prowlers incorporate international elements into their already robust repertoire of unique traditional American music.
Whether performing live or presenting workshops, and wherever they are, the Henhouse Prowlers find and spread the commonality we share as human beings through the universal language of music. You can feel it at every show.
