Georgia Playlist: Amy Ray
Now we add some more songs to our essential Georgia playlist from Amy Ray. We ask artists to pick two songs written or performed by another Georgian that best represent the state.
Amy Ray is part of the seminal folk group Indigo Girls. Her sixth solo studio album, "Holler," is out this Friday.We sat down with Amy Ray and added two more songs to our Georgia Playlist.
Her first pick is a song called "I'm Gonna Sail Like a Ship on the Ocean" by Henry Morrison and Saint Simon's Island Singers. It is an Alan Lomax recording from the album "Sounds of the South: A Musical Journey from the Georgia Sea Islands to the Mississippi Delta."
Her second essential Georgia song is "Remains" by the Atlanta-based band Algiers, off of their self-titled first album.
