NOTES
“So the Story Goes” is Dirty Grass Soul front man Kevin Dedmon’s lighthearted take on a small town love story. Dedmon’s clever, witty lyric is loosely based around a billboard apology that appeared in front of a local Walmart in Dedmon’s hometown. The billboard gained internet fame in the summer of 2016 and became a conversation piece across the country. In an attempt to fill in the blanks surrounding the mystery of this billboard apology, Dedmon penned the fictional story and uploaded an acoustic version of the song to his Facebook page. The resulting video went viral, even reaching regional news stations across the Carolinas. Capitalizing on the momentum, along with the help of friend & Producer Aaron Meier, Dedmon went to work the following week and recorded the studio version of the song. The final product is an instant classic, smothered & covered in small town folk-lore.
