My sister in law had a baby 8 days ago and she voted today. Here’s hoping reasons to vote beat excuses not to and we all care more today like @paolac
Knocked on a lot of doors today w @kristinbobistin to remind folks that TOMORROW is the big day and help them know where to vote. Kristin wore her France sweater and I had my @sarawatkins tee on, hopefully we didn’t confuse too many folks. If you want to join me pounding the pavement tomorrow, let me know! Bernie Sanders won one of his first elections by just 10 votes. Every vote matters. I think our country would be working better for all of us if we all voted as passionately as we complain about the state of the world at the bar.
They really rolled out the red carpet for us in Newport. Have you ever seen a more beautiful tree? What a blast playing with @mayadevitry @markerelli @petermulvey43 and @drzachariah. Thank you @commonfencemusic
Calling all #DownLikeSilver fans - @peterbradleyadams and I are heading west in two weeks to play our own songs and DLS songs in our back to back sets. Any requests?

Meant to include these shots in my last post. Just overwhelmed by these sweet and talented people.
What a thrill to play with these folks. Thank you, @seancwatkins @sarawatkins @sondrelerche @driverminnie @motorsalestheband @benmonttench @sweatsoulandsugar Sebastian Steinberg, and Griffin Goldsmith. @largolosangeles and @watkinsfamilyhour are magic.
Facebook thinks I’ll be playing the Full Moon Tattoo and Horror festival on Nov 3. Maybe next year, I’m already booked. See you in RI, folkies!
This song came on 650 AM as I drove by the grade school on my street. It caught my breath and I had to pull over and listen. My friend Mark Erelli wrote this song, @rosannecash @SherylCrow @MarkErelli @LoriMcKennaMA @anaismitchell @joshritter each sing a verse. Listen to this beautiful song and please buy it. All proceeds go to @GiffordsCourage: https://www.bydegreessong.com/ #bydegrees
This Thursday I’ll be a guest at @watkinsfamilyhour at @largolosangeles along w Minnie Driver, Sondre Lerche, and Motor Sales. Thanks Sean and Sara Watkins - can’t wait for this one!

So happy to announce John Statz will be opening my first headlining show in Denver at @soileddoveunderground on Nov 15. I sang some backing vocals on his recent album, Tulsa and I hope to reprise a few with him in Denver. Tickets very much still available, bring all your pals. Link in profile
My morning glories open at dusk
Here’s “Tennessee Waltz” w Noam Pikelny live from @fretboardjournal -video link in profile.
The beautiful short doc “Grace” is now available to watch in full, online via @condenast. I was thrilled to lend my song “Get Up” to this project - it’s an inspiring story that really hits home with me. We’ve got a lot of badass breast cancer survivors in our family, and this is directed by one. Link in profile
Thanks to @mayadevitry, I met this budding rocker, Angie. I’m trying to get out from behind the screen and meet my neighbors. And I’m pushing aside my awkward Girl Scout memories of knocking on doors to sell those damn cookies to instead knock on doors for @bredesenforsenate Monday morning. Anyone want to join me?
Proud to be singing along with @joy__williams on her new song, Canary. Her record, Front Porch comes out this spring but she’s just released Canary today. (Song link in profile) “I will not shut my eyes / no I will not fall silent” Joy was about 6mo pregnant while cutting this record live with a band - vocal Olympics with a big belly. Badass!
