Vance Joy Shares the Book that Inspired "Nation of Two"

We love that Vance Joy is such a big reader and shares that with his fans. Monday, the singer-songwriter shared on Twitter that his new album "Nation of Two" is based around the Richard Ford non-fiction novel "Between Them."

This story is described as an honest portrayal of where Ford's life began and where his parents’ lives found their greatest satisfaction.

Definitely worth picking up and reading while listening to 'Nation of Two' on February 23rd.


KGSR REWIND

Two years ago, we introduced Vance Joy to KGSR listener Sydnee over a round of tacos at Tyson's.

Why did we pick Tyson's Tacos? Because they have this policy: play a song on the ukulele for one free taco. We thought "Hey Vance Joy knows a thing or two about the ukulele..."

While he was there Vance gave Sydnee a private ukulele lesson and afterward played a few songs for the staff at Tyson's Tacos and KGSR.

Watch him perform "Riptide" below!
