Talking about the track, Holland asked the Maggie May legend: “So, when did you first hear that? Who was doing it?”

“Well, I used to hear my brother singing it,” the musician replied. “He’s just passed, so he won’t be singing it anymore, he was 94 when he died.

“And when I was a little kid all my family used to sing all these songs.”

Stewart’s brother Don died in 2022. Stewart wrote at the time: “It has been a devastating 48 hours. We lost my brother Don on Tuesday at 94 and today we have all lost Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at 96.”
