Nanci Griffith :: Last Of The True Believers

Nanci Griffith walked a very fine line that can be difficult as an artist. Her songs contained politics just in the very nature of being about humans and humanity. But while it was obvious that some of her songs were about her own experiences, so many others were about the people out there that she met, knew or otherwise saw. And that widescreen view of what life is about is a huge part of what made her music endearing and relatable across generations. Sometimes empathy can be some of the most radical politics of all.
