“Mama Let the Wolf In”

From Allison Moorer’s Down to Believing

EONE NASHVILLE

Liner notes: Allison Moorer sheds her honeyed country twang on a nasty swamp-rock rave-up inspired by her son’s autism diagnosis, shouting, “I’d do anything to take your place.”

Behind the music: Moorer gets personal throughout the album, addressing the end of her marriage to Steve Earle in the title track and pondering her bond with sister Shelby Lynne on “Blood.”

Check it out if you like: Musical storytellers like Emmylou Harris and Kacey Musgraves.

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
