Rhett Miller talks to RS about depression and sobriety

Rolling Stone Country have posted an interview online with the Old 97’s frontman Rhett Miller which is a really interesting read. He covers a variety of topics including his struggles with mental health and the work he’s been engaged in with suicide prevention groups, telling them: “It’s just an inherently tricky negotiation to wake up every morning and figure out the motivation to go on. Some people are able to overcome that more easily, and some people are never able to overcome that.” You can read the whole piece over at RS here, or listen to a track from the new record below.
