Mandy Moore has made some new friends at the Merrimack River Watershed Council. After hearing that Moore included a song on her new album called ‘‘Merrimack River,’’ employees at the Lowell agency became insta-fans. Christine Tabak, the council’s executive director, went so far as to say that Moore is welcome to stop by Watershed offices for VIP treatment. ‘‘The Merrimack River Watershed Council invites her to see the Merrimack through our eyes,’’ Tabak told us. ‘‘We’d be happy to give her a boat tour.’’ Moore’s song, which is on her new disc ‘‘Amanda Leigh,’’ isn’t about the river, specifically -- we're pretty sure the Merrimack is a metaphor -- but odds are good the singer had local waters in mind. Moore, who recently married Ryan Adams, not only recorded ‘‘Amanda Leigh’’ in Medford, but she’s originally from Nashua.
Someone recently got some video of a live performance of the tune:
