Folks love to hear the story of the little auburn-haired girl I despised in third grade who, I should add, didn't waste any good thoughts on me. For whatever reason, our grade-school selves couldn't stand to look at each other, but for whatever much better reason, our hearts clicked like puzzle pieces in the weird world of high school, and we were from then on inseparable. She's the kind of friend you can never talk to for a year, but then if she calls, you just pick up exactly where you left off. Well, in the Spring of 2012, she called to say she was marrying her sweetheart, and did me the greatest honor by asking me to write a song for their wedding, which was to be held on the beach at the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I'm in Jamie and Taylor's debt for that commission, because Dive Down Deep is one of my favorite songs, and will hopefully someday end up in some random Beach Wedding Songbook... (That's what I'm counting on, anyway!) Bottoms up, all you Beach Lovers, and hope you enjoy my new acoustic recording of Dive Down Deep.
