Come Hear North Carolina
December 16, 2019


In an interview prior to his recent Music at the Mansion performance, Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Jim Lauderdale spoke about what contributes to North Carolina's special music alchemy. Here's what he had to say:

"When I travel through North Carolina, especially when I drive through Iredell County where I was born and have lived,  I turn off the radio and news and I just try to soak in the atmosphere. When they say those phrases like, 'There must be something in the water,' I think that there is something in the different regions of North Carolina that spur creativity and make your imagination go some place." - Jim Lauderdale
