Almost a year ago, Americana favorite Tift Merritt reissued her 2001 debut, Bramble Rose, first released by a Universal Records imprint, which cracked the top fifty on U.S. country charts. On the occasion of the reissue, just a few weeks after returning to Raleigh following a spell in Manhattan, Merritt told the INDY that the record felt like planting a flag for the person she aspired to be. She has since blossomed into a renowned singer-songwriter, one whose literary approach netted her a Grammy nomination and cemented her reputation as one of the best at her craft. On her new album, Stitch of the World, out on Yep Roc later this month, Merritt reckons with growth and heartache across ten strong songs. In Chapel Hill, she holds court for two nights at a cozy theater on UNC's campus, giving you ample opportunity to lean into every one of her mesmerizing songs. —Allison Hussey
