Tift and Zeke got their start at the Bynum General Store, which unfortunately has closed. Below you'll find a link to an article about the store in the Raleigh News & Observer. Her song Laid A Highway is about Bynum.
From the Cincinnati Enquirer, a review of Tift's show on Friday, October 6th, 2006 at the Tall Stacks Festival in Cincinnati:
Nor could the much younger crowd get enough of Tift Merritt on the Great American Stage. Armed with a guitar and sometimes a harmonica and backed by four pieces, she delivered her mostly up-tempo, countrified rock in that wonderfully throaty style her fans love so much.
She appeared to be having as good a time as the audience during a set punctuated by kabooms from the 7:45 p.m. fireworks and a blown amp. Both thrilled her: "Wow, I had fireworks and I blew an amp. My best show ever."
Fans seemed to agree.

"It's an artist-to-artist interview program where I talk to artists I admire about how they make their work and navigate their lives," Merritt says.
