For years, Todd Snider has been one of the most beloved country-folk singers in the United States, compared to Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, John Prine, and dozens of others. He's become t only a new-century Dylan but a modern-day Will Rogers, an everyman whose intelligence, self-deprecation, experience, and sense of humour make him a uniquely American character. In live performance, Snider's mologues are cheered as much as his songs. But never before has he told the whole story. Running the gamut from personal memoir to shaggy-dog comedy to rueful memories of his troubles and triumphs with drugs and alcohol to sharp-eyed observations from years on the road, I Never Met a Story I Didn't Like is for fans of Snider's music, but also for fans of America itself: the broad, wild country that has produced figures of folk wisdom like Will Rogers, Mark Twain, Ambrose Bierce, Tonya Harding, Garrison Keillor, and more. There are storytellers and there are performers and there are stand-up comedians. And then there's Todd Snider, who is all three in one, and something else entirely.
Todd Snider is one of the premier folk-rock-country artists in the entire world. He has sold millions of records, topped critics' favourite lists for the last decade, and performed or collaborated with John Prine, Billy Bragg, Jimmy Buffett, Robert Earl Keen, Widespread Panic, Yonder Mountain String Band, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Loretta Lynn. He continues to tour nationwide, doing approximately 150 shows per year, and when not touring he makes his home in East Nashville, Tennessee.
