Old 97's On World Cafe (WXPN: World Cafe, 1/12/11)

Old 97's is one of the premier alt-country acts operating these days. Led by vocalist Rhett Miller, the Dallas band was one of the most beloved indie bands of the 1990s. After six years of cult status among No Depression fans, the band scored a breakthrough hit in 1999, "Murder (Or A Heart Attack)," which was picked as one of the best songs of the past 25 years by the now-departed magazine Blender.

After 17 years, Old 97's is still making music. The group's latest release, The Grand Theater, Volume One, is full of raw grit and candid beauty.
