Drew Landry: Third-World Country Blues
Louisiana songwriter Drew Landry’s performance of "BP Blues" before the national commission investigating the oil spill gained him overnight attention and a deal with Warner Bros. Records. Proceeds from the song, which can be downloaded from iTunes or Amazon, will go to relief efforts.
Drew, pictured here with his dog Jackson, has written a new song about the seven clean-up workers who were hospitalized last May after complaining of shortness of breath, headaches, nausea, and high blood pressure. He played it during an interview in Scott, Louisiana.
