One of the brightest rising stars in music today is singer-songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews, a powerful vocalist whom critics have compared with Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris. Her latest album, May Your Kindness Remain, was one of Rolling Stone’s 25 Best Country and American Albums of 2018; on tour this spring, she’ll be sharing the stage with John Prine, Patty Griffin, and Deer Tick—but we will have her all to ourselves.
Courtney Marie Andrews has been touring the world relentlessly since leaving her Arizona hometown at age sixteen. Life on the road inspired much of her 2016 breakthrough album, Honest Life. While that album’s themes spoke to the isolation and rootlessness inherent in a life on the road, May Your Kindness Remain is less about that nomadic lifestyle than it is about the people she’s met along the way. It’s an inward reflection on the connectivity of their stories and her own, the day-to-day struggles of ordinary Americans everywhere.
