Default Americana Awards 2021 Video

Hi all. I don't really post on here but was clearing out some files off my phone and came across this from February 2021. I've never seen this circulating online as far as I'm aware, so I thought id share with fans rather than delete it.

apologies for the shoddy quality. I've watched the Americana awards online for a few years now and filmed this from my phone as it's always impossible to re watch the ceremony afterwards.

enjoy!

Hey you….thank you so much for sharing that. Damn….she looked really good then. I remember some other interview she mentioned she was off on a safari.
I’m just gonna go and have a lie down and a little cry now

"I don't know if my trail is blazing as much as it used to."

With pithy one liners like that it's no surprise she can write a song at a drop of a hat!

Ok, wow—just watching her and listening to that lovely lilt! Did she ever go on the second safari trip?

Btw: she sounds so much better here than she does on the BBC doc, where she appears frail and possibly medicated.

She won the award in 2021 (I checked). So, it has to be from that time.

Thanks for checking. So that may be the last clip that we have of her..? Was there any video clip etc in 2022?

Yeesh. So sad. She looked healthy and happy.

I don't think we have any 2022 footage of her. I do know that she gave a phone interview with RS in (I think) May or June of that year. But nothing beyond that.

Gosh, I miss her!

I wonder how long she knew that she had cancer?

I was wondering the same. And reading Lindsey's statements about "no fingers to point" and his feelings about the band, and assuming Chris was in enough good health, I wish there could have been a BuckVie vol II in 2020-21.

"This might be the last tour that I can enjoy.."

What a gut punch. This could very well be the last public video of her.

I'd give anything for a BuckVie II.

From what I heard, it was not long at all. Maybe a few weeks? she may have lasted a little longer if not for the stroke. But she was able to be at home for nearly all that time and they brought in help.

Also heard she kind of leaned towards holistic type care and maybe did not get medical tests done or check out possible concerns until it was already too late, by then it had spread everywhere. You would think with what happened with John she might have been more on top of that but i guess we all make our choices.

One of my friends recently lost her mom to an aggressive form of lung cancer. she was diagnosed with it after having some chest pain and then was gone two weeks later, there was no treatment that would do any good and the decline was *really* fast. just mainly palliative care at that point, to keep her as comfortable and as pain free as possible. anyway that all made me think very much of what happened with chris...like it was enough time to get your people around you and maybe make some final decisions about certain things. is that better than lingering and worrying for months? I don't know. maybe.
