The singer, who hails from Buckhead in the northern part of the city, remembers sneaking in to see the Georgia Satellites when she was growing up and leaving a lifelong impression. Playing bluesy and soulful Georgia roots music covers a lot of genres. “There’s a great scene in Atlanta and to me it’s a family thing. It’s hard to put a finger on what that Georgia music thing is but a lot of the music that comes from there is really raw and honest.”
Malone was in to reflect on her nearly thirty-year career with Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale on their weekly radio show, the Buddy & Jim Show on SiriusXM Outlaw Country. Malone has a new album “Stronger Than You Think” and played songs from it accompanied by Reno Roberts, a friend who is from Ft. Page, Alabama and now lives in Huntsville.
