Radney Foster has always been a storyteller. His songs — about life, love, loss, and redemption — have always told a story.
But his songs have only told a slice of that story. They've been a compelling glimpse into lives and characters so well drawn that you want to know more. There's a curve in the highway, just south of town. The song goes on to tell the story of a man who's in love with two women, both carrying his child. What happened to him? How did his life sort itself out?
We can only guess.
Thankfully, we don't have to ask those questions with Foster's latest project. Or is it a book and a CD?
Think of all voices, music, sighs, screams rising from her surface! Open to the public. Here, it is carefully employed. Ashley marked it as to-read Dec 09, I bought the paper from him each week for six months.
However you look at it, it is a collection of songs, and a book of short stories that are connected to those songs. It's a brilliant marriage for an artist who is a great storyteller, in both lyrics and prose. Stay Thirsty Magazine sat down with Foster to talk about this latest project. I had to cancel shows, and was on voice rest for three months.
I started writing poems, and then decided to write a short story based on one of my new songs. How true to your life are they? West Texas has always had a vivid influence on me. If not, what inspired that song? My folks often had friends over on Saturday night, and it would usually end of with everyone signing and playing on the back porch.
That really was my musical education. When I learned to play guitar, that was my first stage.
They would have jam sessions every Tuesday night, and Blondie was a musical genius. Other books in this series. Add to basket.
