Lent with John Prine: Sam Stone

Lent with John Prine Sam Stone There’s a hole in daddy’s arm where all the money goes And Jesus Christ died for nothin’ I suppose Little pitchers have big ears — don’t stop to count the years Sweet songs never last too long on broken radios Mmm…. • One of John Prine’s saddest songs — heard with a new resonance today in the midst of our nations’ opioid crisis, is his ballad of Vietnam veteran turned junkie Sam Stone. The song, originally titled “The Great Society Conflict Veteran’s Blues,” was ...

Lent with John Prine: Hello in There

Lent with John Prine Hello in There We are listening to iconic American folksinger John Prine during Lent this year, choosing songs that highlight themes of the season. Of course, in Lent we think of change as well as our mortality — themes artists have always and will ever address. I can’t think of a song that better captures the sadness, alienation, and loneliness that aging in this life can bring than Prine’s exquisite Hello in There. • We had an apartment in the city Me and Loretta li...

Bill Murray Explains How a 19th-Century Painting Saved His Life

You don't understand prewar 20th-century America unless you understand a particular 19th-century French painting: Jules Breton's The Song of the Lark. "In this evocative work, a young peasant woman stands silently in the flat fields of the artist's native Normandy as the sun rises, listening to the song of a distant lark," says a post from the Art Institute of Chicago. Apart from being selected as America's favorite painting in 1934, it was also Eleanor Roosevelt's favorite work of art, ...

Why Gordon Lightfoot is still touring at 80, and what he admires about Bob Dylan

Singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot celebrated his 80th birthday on stage in his Canadian hometown of Orillia, Ontario, playing his 80th show of 2018 as part of a seven-night run of shows he says he’d agreed to do months in advance. There was just one caveat. “A long time ago they asked me if I would do it,” Lightfoot says. “I said, ‘Well if I’m still walking around, I will be there.’ And of course, I was.” In a call from his home in Toronto, the folk-rock icon jokes more than once about shufflin...

FRANKFORT, Ky.

The 20 Best Americana Albums of 2018

None Americana is a peculiar label, isn't it? Whenever we attempt to identify the most authentically American musical form, the one that most accurately captures the history and culture of the United States, we end up debating all night, just as we do every year here in the PopMatters offices and recreation areas when it's time to write our year-end Americana list. What we can all agree on is that Americana music ought to be music that incorporates some traditional elements of any number of Ame...

How to vote for Rock Hall of Fame

Midterms, schmidterms. Election season is over, for about five minutes. Thanksgiving weekend has been grand. The fires are out, for now. Christmas and New Year’s festivities can, and should, wait. The only polling I’m concerned about in this fabulous lull between holidays, between that toasty Indian Summer that is November around here and any real rains that may be coming our droughty way, is the annual balloting for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Don’t try to tell me that culture is not politi...

Blow up your TV, throw away your paper, go to the country, build you a home . . .  I’ve been singing John Prine’s “Spanish Pipedream” for years, and – from time to time – I think he hit the nail squarely on the head. Who doesn’t want to quit the rat race, leave the cell phone and day job behind and head to the woods for a life surrounded by Mother Nature’s bounty? Denver, Colorado, based singer/songwriter Jeff Cramer tackles that very sentiment in “Legend of Bo Tim,” a reality-based cautionary t...
