Chris Knight Hard-hitting, personal songs, set in stark American landscapes
Labeling Chris Knight has never been easy. "Americana" just sounds too distant, too souvenir-shop-like, for this tough, unpretentious performer. Trying to capture in words the grace and gutsy power of his music has been a hard task in itself. Yet critics and fans alike have taken a ride with Chris though a vivid landscape of stark musical honesty. On his album "The Jealous Kind," wrote Angie Glover of the Nashville Rage, "Knight keeps true to his Kentucky roots by weaving urban tales from the dark side." Chris's first album of new material in four years, "Little Victories" is a record of blunt honesty, elegiac truths and the raw rural poetry of an artist who's come into his own and intends to stay. And for a performer who's been compared over the years to Cash, Prine, Earle and Nebraska-era Springsteen, Chris Knight now stands alone as a singer/songwriter that has carved his own idiosyncratic sound and sensibility out of the dirt-road American dream.
