“Kentucky contains multitudes, our people contain multitudes.”

“Our music should contain multitudes as well,” writes Leesa Cross Smith in an essay about Sturgill Simpson in the Oxford American’s 2017 music issue. The annual issue returns to its state-by-state look at some notable music (last year’s focus was a departure from that usual format with Visions of the Blues).

The issue’s cd includes Dave Evans’ Be Proud of the Grey in Your Hair. Evans passed away in June.
