Langhorne Slim didn’t set out to write a record. He hadn’t written music in a year. At the end of 2019, he entered a program to tackle his issues with prescription drug abuse. Shortly after he came out of that program, a tornado struck his neighborhood in Nashville, then COVID-19 hit the nation. Trying to make sense of it all, Langhorne Slim finally wrote a song. He was given the advice to write without any expectations and music started to flow again. The result is his latest album, Strawberry Mansion.
