I love Shawn Colvin; I really do. I love her versions of Steve Earle's plaintive Someday and Bob Dylan's classic You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go and the late, great Warren Zevon's Tenderness on the Block. I think her CD Whole New You is one of the most underrated albums by a singer-songwriter, and I was happy she won a Grammy - not that Grammys matter at ALL anymore - for A Few Small Repairs and its song Sunny Came Home.
So you might think I would thrill to the news she's writing - you guessed it - a memoir, entitled A Few Small Repairs, due to be published by HarperCollins sometime in 2009.
What I wish though is she'd work on a follow-up to These Four Walls, which came out way back in 2006. Shawn! Sing for us! Please!
