Available for Pre-Order Now


September 1 – Acclaimed singer and songwriter Nanci Griffith, whose life was suddenly cut short in 2021, was a Texan-born, GRAMMY Award-winning artist, who would have turned 70 this year. During her nearly 45-year career, Griffith released 18 studio albums, placed multiple singles on Billboard’s country charts, made regular appearances on The David Letterman Show and Austin City Limits, and saw many of her songs become hits for other artists (Dolly Parton, Kathy Mattea and Suzy Bogguss among them). She was a pivotal figure in the development of what is now known as Americana music. She left behind an extraordinary and keenly influential body of work that has inspired future generations of songwriters and is likely to do so for years to come. On September 22, Griffith’s artistic legacy will be memorialised through the all-star tribute, More Than a Whisper: Celebrating the Music of Nanci Griffith.


Today, young Americana stars Billy Strings and Molly Tuttle acknowledge the towering influence of Griffith’s work with an exuberant rendition of one of her most memorable songs “Listen To The Radio”.

Listen to it here:

More Than a Whisper: Celebrating the Music of Nanci Griffith features Griffith’s friends, collaborators, and fans interpreting her most beloved songs, including Shawn Colvin, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Sarah Jarosz, Lyle Lovett and Kathy Mattea, John Prine and Kelsey Waldon, and Mary Gauthier, who also shares her admiration for Griffith in heartfelt liner notes. Recorded over several years in studios across America, More Than a Whisper also includes stirring contributions from Brandy Clark, Billy Strings and Molly Tuttle, Iris DeMent, Todd Snider, and Aaron Lee Tasjan with Patty Griffin, while Ida Mae and The War and Treaty both appear exclusively on the expanded CD, digital, and HD versions of the album. All proceeds from More Than a Whisper will benefit Nashville’s Cumberland Heights, a non-profit treatment facility offering hope and healing to those affected by drug and alcohol addiction.
