Linda Ray

Contributor and Contributing Editor to <i>No Depression Magazine</i>, 1996 - 2008,  and author of the second longest article ever published there, Peter's Alejandro Escovedo "Artist of the Year" story having edged out my Dolly Parton cover by a hair. (Imagine smiley face, here.) A likely contentious discussion over beers might be whether I'm ahead, now, with the Gelb piece clocking in at more than 9,000 words. That discussion would not be had with me. Congratulations all on the anniversaries and revivals! And good luck with all your future endeavors. Note that despite what this system says, I am in Tucson, AZ, and not Phoenix, which I fled right after high school.
