Sara Watkins Recalls the Joy and Pain of “You and Me”

Looking back on old relationships, it’s easy to think about what the other person used to say and do — even when it made you a little bit crazy. Sara Watkins takes it a step further in “You and Me” by remembering all the vivid details, from the sweet smell in the air to the dusty roads that made their feet dirty. That cinematic approach may be why the melancholy song fit so well on the TV series Hart of Dixie, which has a gift for featuring left-of-center music with universal themes.
