Last year I read a very good account of the life of Townes Van Zandt called To Live’s To Fly. I was lucky enough to get Steve Earle to sign my copy of the book in Austin, Texas at a launch of his own work I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive. Being a big Van Zandt and Earle fan and given their close relationship, To Live’s To Fly has an extra special place in my bookshelf.
Now there is another book just released – I’ll Be Here In The Morning: The Songwriting Legacy Of Townes Van Zandt by Brian T Atkinson.
There is a great article on Atkinson’s book by Chris Mateer, founder and writer of the Uprooted Music Revue and regular contributor to the No Depression website.
Here is a link to Chris’ article.
It’s great to see Van Zandt’s impressive legacy continue to grow in recognition.
