Kimmie Rhodes interview plus Banned tracks and more

“Kimmie Rhodes: The soul of a poet and the voice of an angel.” Rodney Crowell

In celebration of her new album Miracles On Christmas Day, talented singer-songwriter Kimmie Rhodes from Texas is part way through a UK tour which includes Otterton Mill, Devon this Wednesday 8 December. We were delighted that Kimmie found time to talk to us live yesterday evening on rootsandshoots. She told us that this tour is proving very special as she is getting wonderful audiences and is singing seasonal songs in places where the wintery snow is all around. One sad piece of news is that, through ill health, her husband Joe Gracey has been unable to accompany her but she is so happy to have her talented son Gabe with her. We thank Kimmie very much and wish her every success with her continuing tour.
