Now on the road with his Campfire Tour, the former Grateful Dead guitarist and songwriter Bob Weir stopped at CBS This Morning's Saturday Sessions to play the original song ”Only a River,” which references the traditional song “Shenandoah” in its lyrics, from his new album Blue Mountain. Bob has enlisted a great acoustic band for the tour, and in this video, he's playing his new custom MJC from the Huss & Dalton Guitar Company.

Bob released Blue Mountain this fall, his first solo album in over a decade, and says that this is a collection of songs inspired by his time living with ranch hands and cowboys when he ran away to Wyoming at the age of 15. Decades later, he did a webscast with Josh Ritter and some of the members of The National, who loved his “cowboy songs,” and the Blue Mountain album began to take shape.
