Is there a musician that captures the conscience of early-21st Century America better than James McMurtry? We at WNCW are skeptical there could be. With his hard-hitting arsenal of biting, tell-it-like-it-is prose, he is one of our most requested songwriters. As another of our favorites, Drive-By Trucker Patterson Hood says, “McMurtry might be the best topical writer performing right now." We welcome him back to Studio B before his Tuesday night Asheville show.
