performers covering songs written by Vic Chesnutt. All performers'
proceeds and a major portion of Sony Music's proceeds will go to
the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, which helps musicians pay for medical
treatment and related expenses. A range of contemporary and alternative
rockers pay tribute to Vic Chesnutt, an amazing singer-songwriter
from Athens, Georgia, on this second album to benefit the Sweet
Relief Musicians Fund. The organization was formed in 1993 after
Victoria Williams was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. A poignant
highlight of GRAVITY OF THE SITUATION is the quietly life-affirming
"God is Good," co-written and sung by Chestnutt, who has
performed in a wheelchair since a car wreck.
One after another, these tracks salute the simple, funny truths
that Vic Chestnutt's songs tell like nobody else's.
