Shawn Mullins: Beautiful Wreck

8 Mar

Birthday greetings to Georgian Shawn Mullins, who celebrates No. 43 today.

Mullins had a big hit more than a decade ago with the Grammy-nominated Lullaby, and All In My Head made a TV show, but there’s a lot more of his work that deserves that kind of exposure even if it hasn’t received it.

He told in a 2008 interview his biggest career regret was not signing Kris Kristofferson’s guitar when he was invited to. Mullins said he looked at the names of the previous signers — Dylan, Cash, Joplin, Hendrix, etc. — and “I was so blown away by the whole thing that I let it go.”

We think if he gets another chance, he’s safe and worthy to sign.

”I’ve lost count of the times I’ve given up on you
But you make such a beautiful wreck you do”
Shawn Mullins
