We put a lot of road between this album and the last one, back and forth across the U.S. of A. and Canada, hitting most of the high spots and all of the lows. Cruising pretty close to crazy, but somehow keeping it together enough to keep from crossing that border. We made some friends and left some enemies along the way, and I guess we'll continue to. It all adds up to miles and memories, and, like Satchel Paige said, "Don't look back; something might be gaining on you."
In the video game Battlefield: Bad Company, upon facing a difficult situation one of the player character's squad members asks if "Is this as bad as Kris Kristofferson's third album?" upon which another squad member replies affirmatively, referring to Border Lord. The exact quote: Sweetwater: "This is bad, Hags. Whatever you've done, it's worse." Haggard: "Worse than Kris Kristofferson's third album?" Sweetwater: "Bad, worse!" Haggard: "No WAY!"
