Grammy nominated Iris DeMent exemplifies what it means to forge your own path in the music industry. Her independently released debut album Infamous Angel landed her a deal with Warner Bros. Over the past two decades, DeMent never shied away from using her ethereal voice and songwriting to address social and political issues throughout her work. Merle Haggard called her “the best singer I’ve ever heard” and John Prine said her voice is “like an old friend I’d never met before.” In 2017 Iris DeMent was honored with the Americana Trailblazer Award.
