Sufjan Stevens wrote a song about Brinkley, Arkansas at the request of some people at NPR. Together the song and interviews with locals makes a nice story, which was broadcast on NPR and can be heard here. Much of it centers around the town and its economy and the recent discover of a woodpecker near there that was thought extinct since 1944.

One can listen to the NPR piece and download the song at the NPR site. I think the song might only be available for download for a short time so download it now.
