Chronic Cover Songs for 420: Brothers Newbill Do Brewer and Shipley's "One Toke Over the Line"

Editor's note: If you grew up in South Florida, you've lived a

delightfully half-baked existence. You've definitely smoked the

stickiest crippy and the worst Jamaican schwag. County Grind got all 

stoned and thought, why not ask these toasty South Florida musicians to

give us a taste of their favorite pot-inspired songs in preparation for

420? This Chronic Cover series introduces you to both songs about weed

and local talents. For the full list, click here.

County Grind is an unabashed fan of one of our most delightful writers Travis Newbill. The musician joined vocal forces with his brother Brady, who also played the organ for this cover of Brewer and Shipley's classic "One Toke Over the Line." Travis and Brady remade this folk country ditty -- off their 1970 album Tarkio -- and made it way more intimate and even a teeny bit spooky. There's nothing like family singing together -- two brothers getting emotional about pot. That's what America is all about. 

It was recorded at, they say, Mom's House Studios.

Travis notes, "Brady has been much more active musically than I have recently. He is currently recording an EP with one of his bands, North Atlantic Space Company, and preparing to record another one with Dooms De Pop." Both are kind of also County Grind faves. Brady is working on some solo work due to be released eventually. 

You can catch Travis performing at Dada, 52 N. Swinton Ave, Delray Beach, on Monday, and you should, because it'll be his last gig before skipping town to go somewhere in Colorado (we'll miss you, Travis!).
