Iris DeMent Best 5 Songs [VIDEO]

Iris DeMent

Iris DeMent was born on this day near the town of Paragould, Arkansas. The youngest child of Pat DeMent and his second wife, Flora Mae.

A singular talent, Dement has had a significant impact on roots music. From her debut at 25 “Infamous Angel” to her latest “Sing The Delta” the soul and depth is undeniable.

Other musicians agree.

She has sung duets with John Prine, Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris and is featured on the albums of many other performers.

Here are 5 of my favorite songs by DeMent.

There’s A Whole Lot of Heaven

Pretty Saro

Go On Ahead And Go Home

Let The Mystery Be

Our Town

And by special request by an equally formidable talent, Kelly Willis.
Sweet Forgiveness
