Mercy Bell / Remembering Acuff’s Run for Governor

Mercy Bell is a singer and songwriter based in Nashville. I think we determined that her genre is pop-folk, or folk-pop, or pop-alt-country, or just regular alt-country, but we also determined that genre is tricky. We also talk about her. Her self-titled record is out now.

I also dive into the times Roy Acuff ran for governor, and what that meant for the history of country music and American politics.

Oh, and here’s that absolutely perfect quote from Acuff’s poster: GETTING READY TO GO TO THAT GRAND OLE OPRY IN THE SKY AND I’M SELLING MY POSSESSIONS FROM THE MUSIC INDUSTRY I’VE TREASURED FOR YEARS!
