Ben Kweller Offers Free Song Download
For this issue, Esquire Magazine asked five of its favorite musicians - Dierks Bentley, Charlie Mars, Bob Schneider, Griffin House, and Ben Kweller - to come to the Shack-Up Inn in Clarksdale, Mississippi and take part in a two-day fashion shoot with world-famous photographer Danny Clinch.
To make things interesting, Esquire also asked each of the musicians to take the "Esquire Songwriting Challenge" which called for each artist to write, perform, and record an original song with lyrics that include the phrase "Somewhere in Mississippi." For some of the musicians, this became the title of their song and they used it time and again. For others, they used the phrase once before heading in another direction. The results are five songs as unique and entertaining as the men who created them.
