Label: Sony, 1996

Features performers covering songs written by Vic Chesnutt. All performers’ proceeds and a major portion of Sony Music’s proceeds will go to the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, which helps musicians pay for medical treatment and related expenses. A range of contemporary and alternative rockers pay tribute to Vic Chesnutt, an amazing singer-songwriter from Athens, Georgia, on this second album to benefit the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. The organization was formed in 1993 after Victoria Williams was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. A poignant highlight of GRAVITY OF THE SITUATION is the quietly life-affirming “God is Good,” co-written and sung by Chestnutt, who has performed in a wheelchair since a car wreck. One after another, these tracks salute the simple, funny truths that Vic Chestnutt’s songs tell like nobody else’s.
