Deep roots

James McMurtry gives life to the near-dead out in the flat lands

"I always tended to write on the darker side of whatever I'm writin' about," McMurtry says. "It's more believable. it's harder to write something positive without bein' a cheerleader. Cheerleaders have always bugged me. But I think this record has a little light in the dark in that the characters aren't quite as resigned to their miserable fates. They are more willing to do something about. it. Least I think so."

James McMurtry performs June 23 at Poor David's Pub.
