Singer and songwriter Jeff Tweedy has been collecting fans and critical praise for more than 20 years.  R.E.M.’s Peter Buck described Tweedy as “one of the best songwriters of his generation,” and there’s a long list of groundbreaking records to back that claim up.  With his current band, the Grammy-winning Wilco, Tweedy has created music that mixes a long list of musical genres into a diverse and ever-evolving sound.  Before Wilco, Tweedy was a major force in the band Uncle Tupelo, which helped to create and popularize alt-country music.  Wilco’s eighth album, The Whole Love, was released in September.

Join us as part of  Overheard with Evan Smith’s second season of great conversation with fascinating people, always on the news and always with a sense of humor.  The show features in-depth interviews with a mix of guests from politics, the arts, literature, journalism, business, sports and more, and reaches PBS stations from California to Florida.
