S.G. Goodman turns traditional Southern storytelling on its head with songs that present a deeper, more complex look at life below the Mason-Dixon line. As a queer person who lives with mental illness, she often sings about the social and political change she’d like to see in her part of the country. Goodman talks to Bruce Headlam about her new album, produced by My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, and plays some of the songs live from her home in Murray, Kentucky.
