An artist that the New York Times called “a hard-nosed iconoclast and the last of a dying breed…", Chris Knight has been making music his own way for the past 20 years, flying under the mainstream radar and touring steadily, all while influencing a generation of young up-and-coming artists (John Moreland/Tyler Childers).

Almost Daylight features colorful characters and rural narratives that dedicated Chris Knight fans have long been drawn to. It has a blend of Appalachian instrumentation, electric guitars, Hammond B-3 and background vocals by Chris Clark, Siobhan Kennedy and Lee Ann Womack. A guest vocal performance by John Prine on his 1973 classic “Mexican Home,” rounds out the album.
