The state of Georgia has declared 2016 the Year of Georgia Music. Each month will be a celebration of people who make the state’s soundtrack come alive. Today, we feature two Georgia songwriters. Michelle Malone was born and raised in Atlanta and comes from a family of performers. Randall Bramblett was born in Jesup, Georgia and now lives in Athens.

We speak with the pair about what inspires their work and what being a singer-songwriter means to them. 

Randall and Michelle will perform Wednesday night in Atlanta at the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center in Atlanta. This will be the third installment of the Songwriter Series, produced by Georgia Tourism. More information about the event can be found here
