In Their Words: “I feel very passionate about the message in this song and was fortunate to have Sonny Landreth’s incredible slide guitar echo those feelings. This album was made by all sides of me — happy, sad, silly, irate — they’re all a part who I am and who we all are. I’m not political. I’m just talking about what’s happening in this country. Once my son was born, I became even more committed to making the world a better place. On America’s Child, Uncivil War and now Done Come Too Far, I’ve been trying to put the ‘United’ back into United States. Friends, family and home, these things we all value.” — Shemekia Copeland
