Ryan Adams is 6 Miles From Graceland

6MilesGracelandWhatever else can be said about “Losering,” good or bad, there’s this: It has inspired a song. Elliott Humphries, an area singer-songwriter who has been known to channel Ryan Adams in song (and who also closed out the Ryan Adams “Losering” tribute show back in May), has written and recorded a song that tells Ryan’s story as someone who “just couldn’t survive in a one-story town.” And for a title and chorus, Elliott took inspiration from a choice quote by Ryan himself in the “Losering” Preface:

Rich and famous or not, I’m still going to be buried with a guitar, under a big oak tree in Memphis, Tenn., six miles shy of Graceland.

Thus we have a subdued little song called “6 Miles From Graceland,” which I like a lot. Take a listen here.
