Folk singer and native Oklahoman Woody Guthrie was "probably not one of the favorite sons" when he was alive, a state senator said. But Guthrie's legacy has inspired a celebration in honor of his 100th birthday this Sunday at the annual festival in his hometown of Okemah.
The Guthrie family provided the unrecorded song to the duo, and were told, "Do something beautiful with this," Merenda said.
"It has not been recorded. We got to make the premier recording," Merenda said. "It's been getting an overwhelming response in our live concerts."
