About to Choke
Vic Chesnutt has made plenty of good albums. He had a bit part in a popular movie (Sling Blade). He was even honored with star-studded tribute disc. So why haven't more people heard of him? Simple. He's a "songwriter's songwriter." Of course, all that really means is his work is consistently entertaining, beautiful, provocative, witty. Luckily, you don't have to be a songwriter to love it.
