Paula Cole Releases Two New Songs With Jason Isbell and John Paul White

“American music is a patchwork of cultural legacies of histories. The music reflected it. I realized that I need to thematically unify all this gorgeous music that is American music.”
“I hope the listener will step inside the canoe and float down the Missouri River of their mind. I hope they will hear the gospel of the country, and taste the liquor in the speakeasies. I hope they will feel the freedom in the jazz of the cities, heed the call to morality in the spirituality of a day’s hard work, and the call to the Great Beyond from the Appalachians.” – Paula Cole
