Talking Southern Music with Music Critic and Author Mark Kemp

Posted: Feb 14, 2009

When I received my "goodie bag" at the 2004 Americana Music Conference I was ecstatic to find a brand new, hard cover book in amongst all the magazines, stickers and promo items. That book was Dixie Lullaby, and its author was North Carolina boy Mark Kemp.

Now, mind you, I had already crossed paths with Mark a few years before, when a man contacted us both about being on the board of directors for his proposed Southern Music Museum. Sadly, there were a few screws loose in his plan, but  I had the opportunity to meet Kemp, at least on the phone.

When I heard about his book, I had every intention of buying it, but as fate would have it, the AMC bag handed me a copy. Oddly enough, Mark's publicist had me a second copy in the mail for review when I returned from Nashville. I was happy to gift one of my Southern music loving friends with the additional copy.

After reading his book the first time, I made myself a promise that I would one day meet and interview this like-minded lover of music. Again, destiny (and Facebook) brought us back together.

Now I am happy to present a conversation we had just this week about music, the Southern thang, his job at Rolling Stone, and much more. I hope y'all like it. Thanks Mark. In the immortal words of Wayne (or was it Garth?) "You rock, dude! Excellent!"

Keep it Real. Keep it Southern.

I know Mark is an interesting character. Good to see this; I love mark's writing and have enjoyed hearing him talk about music going on 30 years now (I'm not forgetting he was the first person I knew who owned a Ramones record AND had an autographed Hank Jr. LP).

copperhead says...

I read that book when I managed Barnes & Noble. I'll have to read it again. Great interview. I really enjoyed it.

Ironman says...
