From small country churches, to the stages of the civil rights movement, to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Mavis Staples' career has spanned more than sixty years.
The gospel legend has no plans to slow down any time soon. Her new album One True Vine, is her second collaboration with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy.
"It's a totally different CD," Staples tells NPR's Neal Conan. "It's a return to my beginning. I've gone from the strictly gospel to folk to country, and here I am right back at home where I began."
Staples began singing with her family band the Staples Singers when she was 13. She says the latest album reminds her of singing with her family.
