To get to Nashville, sometimes you have to leave Nashville.
RayLand Baxter grew up there, the son of a successful musician. But becoming a musician himself wasn't necessarily top of mind. He traveled, he "hopped a few ships," he spent time in Europe and Israel. And somewhere along the line, songs and songwriting started to take shape in his life. Now Baxter is back in Nashville, and he's wound up right where you might have expected him to be at the start, naturally.
Rayland Baxter comes to Newport Folk 2013, and mvyradio will be there again, participating in NPR Music's coverage. Hear performances live from the stage on mvyradio, July 26th through 28th. And watch this space for more NFF artist previews.
