RS features Billy in "10 New Country Artists You Need to Know."
Dear Mavis Staples, what do you want for your birthday?
In 1963, when this guitar was made (and I was six), you went with your family to hear Martin Luther King Jr preach in Montgomery. You were in your early twenties and your voice began to widen the reach and deepen the call of civil rights. This little white church kid needed your freedom songs, too. When I heard "I'll Take You There," and "Respect Yourself," your hope rang true for me. I have a clearer sense of it now - our destinies, our liberation, were somehow wrapped up together. Now, every new record you make is a thrill. What a powerful thing a song can be when it's tethered to a heart like yours. So, you're turning 80. Well, in case you wonder sometimes what's gonna last, I'll say it. You will. Through these songs. Your music is still the medicine we need. I'll give you that, and a heartfelt song in return.
Happy Birthday, Mavis. - Billy
