Iris DeMent is an American two-time Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter. DeMent's musical style includes elements of folk, country, and gospel.
DeMent describes herself as extremely shy, but says that "when the songs started coming to me, I felt I didn't have the option to hide and avoid" the stage. She spoke with Terry Gross (and played songs in-studio) in 2015.
