DL Marble talks about one of his recent music milestones came when one of his musical influences, Hayes Carll followed him on Twitter. “One day Hayes Carll followed me on Twitter and I was like a 12 year-old girl who'd just met Justin Bieber. DL Marble also talks about doing a show with Ray Wylie Hubbard recently the inspiration he's gotten from Ray Wylie Hubbard.
“He's a great guy and when you're around someone you literally grew up listening to, literally listening to their records when you're 5 years old and then you're playing with them and it's not just B.S, they're actually into it. It makes all the sacrifices, and there's a lot of them and it doesn't look like it's hard as it is but it really is and it makes it really worth the suffering and loss and all the stuff we have to go through to actually make it as a musician worth it.”
DL Marble sets up “Sombrero Lullaby”. This song was written with his brother while his brother was stationed in Afghanistan as an active duty marine. This song is about coming home and having to get back to real life. DL says they wrote this song to support all the veterans.
