Singer Patty Griffin has released three albums. Her latest, 1,000 Kisses, is the most spare, the most acoustic, and perhaps the most heart-wrenching. Host Howard Berkes talks to Patty Griffin about the sadness in her voice and her lyrics. They also talk about Bruce Springsteen, singing in Spanish, and the power of a good Texas rain. (1,000 Kisses is on ATO Records. www.atorecords.com. Patty Griffin's website is www.pattygriffin.com.)
