There must be something in the water in Lubbock, Texas, and whatever it is, Terry Allen has soaked it deep into his soul. Conceptual artist, photographer, sculptor and legendary songwriter, Allen has an imagination that's as wide and rugged as the West Texas plains.

In musical circles, Allen is best known for the progressive country classics Lubbock (on Everything) and Juarez, on which his thundering piano and metallic voice lay bare the comedy and tragedy of the always wild, wild west. He's also been recognized for his original vision in contemporary American art, earning fellowships from the Guggenheim and NEA foundations, and receiving scores of public commissions for his provocative installations. He currently works and lives in Santa Fe, where he is completing his 12th album, scheduled for release in 2011.
