I somehow failed to mention it in this week's liner notes post, but noted songster Deacon Claybourne graces the cover of this week's dead-tree edition of the Scene. We featured Claybourne in a cover story we called "The Long Road Back"; we compared him to Steve Earle and Kris Kristofferson and gave him five stars! That's the first time in Scene history that we've given the subject of a cover story stars for something. He earned it.
