Like all the Country music tshirts in the nashvillecalifornia collection, “Walker River Set Me Free” was inspired by the title of an Elvis Nash song and is only available through nashvillecalifornia.com. It features a unique hand-painted picture of Walker River, as opposed to a computer-generated design, which is common with most Country music tshirts.
So, where is Walker River, you ask? The headwaters begin in the Sierra Nevada range of West-Central Nevada and the terminus is Walker Lake, close to Highway 95. The western fork of the river runs through California not far from the “ghost town” home of singer-songwriter Elvis Nash.
The song is a medium rock-blues ballad accentuated by slide guitar. Elvis wrote it after a painful breakup to describe the restorative powers of nature. Talking to the river, he sings lines like, “Make your fast, fast rapids run through my soul,” and “Your cold water will calm my mind” capturing the power of a mountain stream to wash away hurt and heal bitterness, in a deep baritone voice that has been likened to artists like Johnny Cash and Trace Adkins.
