In the signature Blind Willie tune, Statesboro Blues, there’s a line that stands out to us – “I’m goin’ to the Country, baby do you wanna go?” In this issue, we decided to go to the Country where we found three area musicians to talk to: Micah Bonn, formerly known as Micahlan Boney, up and coming Country music sensation Clayton Hackle, and Bluegrass bass player Rafe Waters. Each musician shares with us their dreams and successes on the road to Country music fame.
We also have a special feature that takes us on a tour of the beautiful traditional Southern home of Ralph Cowart. It has taken 18 months for Cowart to renovate and refurnish the beautiful neoclassical home with help from area artisans and designers. Working together they were able to restore the home to its former grandeur. See the amazing transformation.
Speaking of transformations, have you been to Metter lately? In the past few months, in spite of the economic uncertainty caused by the pandemic, 12 new businesses have opened in the downtown area! And, Georgia Southern University will soon be opening their second Business Innovation Group Incubator in the downtown area, too.
We may be stuck at home, but at least we have something great to read about!
