Charles “Chip” Esten (better known as Deacon Claybourne from TV series Nashville) was asked by his writers to come up w/ a song (in just 3-days) he could perform on the show (season 6) as a tune his daddy had once taught him.

Here’re the words:

My grandaddy used to widdle

While my daddy played the fiddle

Patrick Kerr and Bruce Firestone sing Chip Esten’s Itty Bitty Ditty for Bruce’s grandsons, CJ and Godric…

Pat is a fine singer, songwriter, musician, composer and union man (red seal boilermaker).

Prof Bruce can’t sing worth a bean, but he adores his grandchildren…
