Terri Binion's new album

The Day After the Night Before

The fact that the new album by Orlando's grande dame of Americana was 14 years in the making would make its release momentous no matter what. But in that time, Binion endured an unbelievable string of tragedy that included the deaths of her father, mother and wife, as well as the consequent tribulation of seeking legal relief in the face of same-sex marriage inequality. Somehow, by dint of will and artistry, she emerged from the darkness with a beautiful work of both heartbreak and hope – The Day After the Night Before is golden proof that you can't keep a good woman down.
