On her sixth appearance on ACL, Patty Griffin is up there with the best singer/songwriters, you may know of her songs via the Dixie Chicks. My lovely wife Jenny won tickets to see a double taping tonight for the Austin City Limits 45th season with Steve Earle and the Dukes and Patty Griffin!
You can watch, too, as tonight they will air both full live sets of these iconic singer/songwriters. The broadcast episodes will air on PBS later this year as part of our upcoming Season 45.
She lives in Austin and for some years, so did her Band of Joy bandmate live with her, as a couple. Robert Plant, yeah that Robert Plant the voice of the legendary Led Zeppelin! There is a great picture online that somebody took of them at Patty’s house in Travis Heights in South Austin. It is Halloween and this guy is trick or treating with his kids and he sees Patty Griffin in a apron and Robert Plant in his undershirt. He got a photo of them and the kids in their costumes, I have included that photo on this episode’s cover.
Let’s start this set of with a rockin’ little number.
Truth #2 and Top of the World, those were both recorded by the Dixie Chicks for their Home album. And Top of the World may have become a hit for them, but not after fans turned on them when lead singer Natalie Maines made some disparaging remarks oversees about fellow Texan, President George W. Bush.
That was Patty Griffin singing Top of the World live on a previous ACL Taping, even before she had recorded it on an album.
This last song, it’s my favorite, if it doesn’t make you cry, I don’t know what will, enjoy and thanks for listening!
