Morning Song – Black Horse & The Cherry Tree
“Black Horse and the Cherry Tree” is inspired by old blues, Nashville psycho hillbillies & hazy memories. It tells the story of finding yourself lost on your path, and a choice has to be made. It’s about gambling, fate, listening to your heart, and having the strength to fight the darkness that’s always willing to carry you off.
Couldn’t have said it better myself.
KT Tunstall also wrote “Black Horse And The Cherry Tree”, and used this exhilarating* one-woman band performance of it on Later…with Jools Holland back in 2005 to catapult her career to new heights.
*And unexpected. She was filling in for Nas, who had cancelled on 24 hours notice.
