Johnny Neel records a beautiful rendition of "That's The Way Love Goes" at Straight Up Sound Studio, as a tribute to one of the greats in Country Music, Merle Haggard.
Johnny said "This song came over me when I was in Park City Utah. We were playing on at large ranch on 10 acres and there was a river running right through the middle of it. I was overcome by the sound and just the whole feeling of the environment. I loved that place. Anyway, I asked if I could come back the next day and write this song, which Bryon Friedman and I did in about 45 minutes....seems like those are the best ones."
