Tinnitist TV | Episode 119: Will Kimbrough

The hard-working multi-tasker on his new record, famous friends and plenty more.

There’s an old saying: Jack of all trades, master of none. Clearly, whoever coined it never met Will Kimbrough.

This Alabama singer-songwriter, guitarist and producer obviously has an impressive musical skill set — and he’s second to none in all respects. His songs have been covered by Jimmy Buffett, Little Feat, Todd Snider, Jack Ingram, Gretchen Peters and many others. He’s produced albums for Buffett, Snider, Rodney Crowell, Shemekia Copeland and more. He’s been a member of Emmylou Harris’s band for years, and worked with a who’s who of Nashville talent from Rosanne Cash and Steve Earle to Buddy Miller and John Prine. And between all those jobs, he releases his own albums — including his latest LP For The Life Of Me, a topical album that finds him diving deep into our dark, divided times while maintaining hope for the future and faith in his fellow man. From his Nashville home, the hard-working Kimbrough got on Zoom to talk about his new record, famous friends, songwriting with soldiers and much more. Enjoy.
