Legendary folk musician, "songwriter's songwriter" Townes Van Zandt is now connected to the Tree. He is the subject of the movies Be Here To Love Me and Heartworn Highways.
"Breaking even is ending up in Purgatory as far as I can tell. I figure there's heaven, purgatory, hell and the blues. I'm trying to crawl up from the blues, purgatory for me would be... Home Sweet Home!" -- Townes.
Townes and I are fifth cousins, twice removed.
