In This Twilight

In This Twilight

From the album APPALACHIA: AMERICAN STORIES, this is one man's story about going through cold turkey withdrawal from opioids. Every year millions of Americans become addicted to opioids after receiving legal prescriptions. Our medical system has very few resources to help these people, not to mention those who intentionally use opioids and are then unable to stop. Withdrawal is a terrible experience. You want to tear your own skin off. Insomnia. Chills. Fever. Crying, and the inability to stop it. An emotional roller coaster accompanied by intense physical pain. The insomnia makes it worse, careening its victims into madness and thoughts of hopelessness, and even suicide. It's worse than you can imagine. There is a huge opioid problem in America. The main ingredients of opioids like fentanyl are produced in China and smuggled to Mexico, where the drug cartels turn them into pills, which they then smuggle into America across our porous southern border. According to the NIH, in 2021 alone more than 82,000 Americans were killed by opioids. That's 30,000 more Americans than were killed throughout the entire Vietnam war. We are dying by the tens of thousands every year from his scourge. This problem is especially bad in impoverished parts of America like Appalachia, which have suffered greatly. Appalachia is one of the most naturally beautiful places in our country, with some of the most wonderful people in the world. This juxtaposition makes this situation even more tragic. We need to do something about it. This album is available on the artist's website, in a vinyl box set with a 40 page book that accompanies it and a CD, or just the boxed set, book and CD, or just as a CD. Please visit: It is also available digitally on the artist's website as well as on Apple Music/iTunes and Amazon Music. 10. “In This Twilight” 4:55 ISRC USBAE2095908 Musical Credits: Co-produced by Grant Maloy Smith and Jeff Silverman Mixed and mastered by Jeff Silverman, Palette Music, Nashville Vocal, Guitar and Bass by Grant Maloy Smith Dobro by Rob Ickes Steel Guitar by Mike Johnson Cello by Tim Lorsch Bouzouki by Frances Cunningham Words and music © 2020 Grant Maloy Smith All rights reserved Video Credits: Video Produced and Edited by Grant Maloy Smith Video © 2023 by Grant Maloy Smith Piano composition over the closing credits composed and performed by Grant Maloy Smith music and arrangement © 2023 Grant Maloy Smith All rights reserved
