Brickell and Steve Martin recently won a Grammy Award for their American roots recording. According to the Associated Press, Steve Martin said, "A collaboration like with Edie is where you need something from them and they confound your expectations. That's what I get from Edie - where you go, `I'm so grateful for these surprising lyrics.'”

Edie Brickell was known as the alternative singer for the band Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians. The band originated in Dallas, Texas. Their hit song, “What I Am” climbed the charts and made Brickell a household name.
