"I called out to her in the darkness because she was a bona fide poet I knew could write songs, and despite her professor's pedigree, she'd ridden a bike in a mosquito truck's fog." Rodney Crowell
"An outlaw pedigree isn't always a disadvantage for a poet...this record's about everybody." Mary Karr
