Overview
A collection of poetry by sterling singer/songwriter Tom Kimmel.
Description
A collection of poetry by sterling singer/songwriter Tom Kimmel. 'Tom Kimmel is a treasure. Songman, rocker, poet, seeker, troubadour... always scratching away for the greater truths like a miner for gold. In these poems, you will recognize and celebrate your own humanity 'warts and all' and know it's okay to be a human being. Yeah!' - Marshall Chapman 'Tom does with poems what Eudora Welty did with short stories . . . sweet (but unsentimental), understated little slices of actual human life as experienced here in the south, or anywhere, for that matter. He puts you so close to those beauty/truth/goodness moments of the heart (the ones we've all known but defy description), that you're suddenly in them before you realize it.Like Eudora, he speaks softly, sneaks up on you — and then nails you. Wonderful stuff.' - Pierce Pettis
About the author
Tom Kimmel's songs have been featured in film, in television and on albums by dozens of artists, including Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker, Randy Travis and Linda Ronstadt, selling millions of copies around the world. A critically acclaimed recording and performing artist in his own right, he tours widely and has released seven albums. The Sweetest & the Meanest, his first collection of poems, draws on his colorful life experience coming of age in the Deep South, traveling the world and exploring spiritual practices. Born in Memphis, he grew up in Alabama and now lives in Nashville with his wife and daughter.
