"Frank and his wife came down to San Marcos and stayed with me and my wife. We wrote a song called In A Moment Of Weakness I Tore A Strong Love Apart. We might put that on the next album. Mirrors Don’t Lie was a song Merle Haggard had sent to me. I played his bass tournament at Lake Shasta, California. Merle has also been one of my heroes and there I got to speaking with him. About six months later I got this tape in the mail. It was a song he wrote - I think it’s gonna be on the new album. Frank brought Marina Del Ray down to San Marcos with him. We were playing a date at Billy Bob’s in Fort Worth and he played the tape to me in the car on the way to San Marcos. I fell in love with the song the first time I heard it. I told Frank I wanted to cut it. He didn’t act enthused. I thought maybe someone else is cutting it. Then he said ‘you can do it.’ It was a song that was a little different."
