Vic Chesnutt in a Coma

It was via a tweet by No Depression publisher Kyla Fairchild that I heard the heartbreaking news that Vic Chesnutt is currently in a coma after a supposed overdose of muscle relaxants. His label, Constellation, has just confirmed this. Kristin Hersh's assertion that the overdose was a suicide attempt remains unconfirmed.

Not only did Chesnutt release one of the finest records of the year, he delivered one of the best live shows of 2009 at the Crocodile, just last month. My heart goes out to his friends and family and I dearly hope that he pulls through this somehow. Fairchild included a lovely interview clip with Chesnutt in her tweet, which you can find here after the jump.
