While doing research for a documentary about the Lincoln Highway Centennial, I found a song called "Rollin' Down That Lincoln Highway" by Shadric Smith. I thought it would make a good theme for the program so I called Smith at his home in Fort Dodge, Iowa, and talked with him about it.
After the interview, I realized I also had a nice story for Morning Edition.
Hear the interview by clicking the above audio link. You can also hear a version of the song from Smith's latest album Half My Life.

Listen for Lincoln Highway, The Father Road this September.
