S3E2: Mark Knopfler

Season 3, Episode 2 September 1, 2021

Mark Knopfler broke through in the late 1970s as the leader of rock band Dire Straits, with hits including “Sultans of Swing” and “Money for Nothing,” but his solo career has proven every bit as creatively fruitful. Heavily influenced by country music as a child in Scotland and England, Knopfler has collaborated extensively with Nashville musicians including Chet Atkins, Richard Bennett, and Emmylou Harris, and his songs are championed in Nashville by music publisher David Conrad, songwriter Paul Kennerley, and many others. Knopfler came to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s audio lair for an episode of Voices in the Hall, talking about his life in music and his country connections.
