Sweetness ain’t gonna get you home
Oh, you’re bound to get a taste
of traveling alone
A few days ago, I spoke to Tift Merritt by phone, and we talked about her new album, Traveling Alone, the road, and life in general. We’ll have that interview for you soon enough, but today I wanted to feature the title track from Traveling Alone, as it’s one of my favorite songs of the year. And in a heap of many wonderful songs she’s written over the years, its spot near the top is unguarded, glistening in the sun.
