Weir is currently on the road with the Campfire Tour. He has mentioned that this album reminds him of the times when cowboys would sit around the campfire at night and sing songs and tell stories togethers. His latest tour connects those moments in Wyoming with audiences around the United States. Weir has mentioned that during his youth he ventured to Wyoming to work with westerns on a ranch. Weir continues to reinvent himself with projects featuring the band The National. On Blue Mountain, Weir was speaking about western music with The National when the idea to put together an album started to form. Blue Mountain marks the first solo record from Bob Weir in over a decade, and the first time he has release an album consisting of all original in over 30 years. Currently, Weir is performing these songs in venues to display strong acoustics, such as the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. These names and songs could all be fictional to give the album a romantic edge, but they could be real people that Weir has loved over his lifetime.
