After two records and a Grammy nomination, Merritt took hiatus with a piano in Paris.

Merritt’s debut, Bramble Rose, earned spots on both Time Magazine and the New Yorker’s year-end Top Ten lists. Tambourine, her Grammy-nominated sophomore album, earned numerous accolades from press and fans. Merritt's Austin City Limits television performance was released on DVD in October of 2007.

Another Country was written by Tift Merritt, produced by George Drakoulias, and recorded by David Bianco. The players include guitarists Charlie Sexton and Doug Pettibone and Tift’s longtime band, Zeke Hutchins (drums), Jay Brown (bass) and Danny Eisenberg (keyboards).
