"I first heard Tift Merritt some years ago during a writer's night at a small club in Nashville. She stood out like a diamond in a coal patch, and everyone there knew she carried a promise of great things to come. She has more than fulfilled that promise, especially here on her lovely new album 'Another Country'." - Emmylou Harris

Why isnt Tift Merritt famous? For one thing, shes responsible for one of the best acoustic guitar strums of 2004the simple notes that usher in Stray Paper, the opening cut off her new album Tambourine. Theyre everything they should be and nothing more: thick, melodic and in service to the singer. And when coupled with the tracks lyrics, the song suggests a stately Neil Young, but with Merritts composed, gorgeous voice rather than a world-weary falsetto.Pitchfork

After two records and a Grammy nomination, Tift Merritt took hiatus with a piano in Paris and was rewarded with an unbridled inspiration and a wealth of her most accomplished songs to date. On February 26, Concord Music Groups Fantasy Records will release Merritts Another Country.

After intensive touring, Merritt erased her grueling schedule and rented a flat with a piano in Pariss 10th arrondisment planning to take time off. Merritt recalls, Days were wonderful there. I wore the same clothes nearly everyday. I would take a coffee in the street, say hello to the good people in the little wine store across from my door, she writes. I cannot explain what happened except to say that there were never enough hours in the day to write, and there was always kindness at hand. I took pictures. I wrote stories. I played piano. I wrote songs.

These songs together comprise Merritts third recording Another Country. Merritt describes the writing as a plainspoken look at the distance we all attempt to cross: between two people, between one heart and the rest of the world.

Merritts debut Bramble Rose earned spots on both Time Magazine and the New Yorkers year-end Top Ten lists. Tambourine, her sophomore album, was Grammy nominated for Country Album of the Year and earned numerous accolades from press and fans. She has appeared on The Tonight Show and The Late Show with David Letterman, and shared the stage with Elvis Costello, Gillian Welch, Emmylou Harris, Ryan Adams, Willie Nelson, and Nickel Creek. Her Austin City Limits television performance was released on DVD in October of 2007.

Another Country was written by Tift Merritt, produced by George Drakoulias, and recorded by David Bianco. The players inc
