Song History
First appearing on the Dave and Friends 2003 Winter Tour, Butterfly is a lullaby-like song Dave wrote while filming for “Because of Winn Dixie” and says he, “was thinking about my little girls”(01.16.2004). It was played sparingly until achieving moderate success towards the end of the 2006 Summer Tour as a Dave solo encore opener. Dave encourages listeners to live life despite the sudden and often harsh bumps in the road.

Although it does not appear on the film’s soundtrack album, a recording of the song was released on a CD sent to Academy voters for Oscar consideration for Best Original song.
