Song Of The Day: 'Crossing Muddy Waters' by John Hiatt
I am big fan of folksy, country music and John Hiatt has over the past couple of years become one of my favourite artists. 'Crossing Muddy Waters' was the first song I ever heard by him. This song is so sad and so beautiful, it makes my heart hurt. Hiatt wrote it after his wife committed suicide, and the raw emotion that inspired the song really comes through, both in the lyrics and the melody. A musical masterpiece that I listen to on repeat frequently.
