Texas singer/songwriter Jimmie Dale Gilmore creates a unique style of music—labeled “progressive alternative country” and, lately, “Americana”—that blends a lifelong interest in esoteric philosophy, literature, psychology, and spirituality with elements of country, folk, pop, blues, and rock music. Three of his CDs, Spinning Around the Sun, Braver New World, and Come on Back, have received Grammy nominations. The Rolling Stone Critics’ Poll named him the Country Artist of the Year for two straight years. Gilmore’s CD One Endless Night is, in his description, a musical self-portrait. He continues to record and perform with his band, The Flatlanders.
