Hisle said of the effort, "Ryan sent me a demo that he'd done of "Ohio" and said we should record it and put it out since I'm opening for Stephen Stills on his US tour in October. So he said we should get Rick Rosas and Dave Krusen on it and then I did some vocals and guitar and it turned out amazing. Can't wait to get it out and see what Stephen and Neil think"
