Austin-based musician and author Darden Smith’s Western Skies is an immersive look into Smith’s travels across West Texas roads while creating his album of the same name. Through songs written behind the wheel, reflective essays, observations scribbled into his notebook, and eerie Polaroid images of vast landscapes, Smith’s new book is an homage to the stirring sights and sounds of Texas’s natural environments. Join Darden Smith and moderator Keith Carter for the conversation.
