Karen & the Sorrows: Back Down to the Dirt

Queer country trailblazers Karen & the Sorrows have been featured in Billboard, WNYC’s The Takeaway, and Rolling Stone, who described them as “Dolly Parton fronting Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers.” Noisey called their most recent album, The Narrow Place, “exactly what country music needs right now.” They are also at the heart of Brooklyn’s queer country scene, running the Gay Ole Opry Festival and the Queer Country Quarterly, and creating community for people who love country music even if country music doesn’t always love them back.

Here’s the video for “Back Down to the Dirt” From Karen & the Sorrows’ new album The Narrow Place out now. Order at Bandcamp, iTunes and Amazon.
