the houses are all the same and were at the time all empty giving
us an eerie suburban normality and of course the beautiful Hercules
plane to finish with," singer Trish Anderson says.

Pushin' Up Daisies as a tribute to his late mother, country singer
Colleen Carroll, for Scarecrow - the last album he recorded before he
was kind enough to call my publisher and ask him for songs," Welch
said, "we sent him about 30 songs. Garth and producer Allen Reynolds
looked at 5,000 songs. It's unique for me to allow lyric changes but I
thought his motive was really clean. The song had a new function at that
point. I also thought he did a good job."
