Jim Lauderdale on the village it takes to raise an artist

When we create our stories each week, one of the most agonizing decisions is what to call people. How do you distill a life—in the case of our storytellers, an otherworldly life—into the three or four words of a title scroll?

Today we feature Grammy-winning songwriter, Jim Lauderdale. Songwriters always fascinate us, especially inspired, prolific ones like Jim.

So Jim’s interview kicks off what will be a semi-regular feature on 3-Minute Storyteller. We’ll be talking with some of our upcoming storytellers about those first memories of artistic inspiration.

Listen to Jim’s story of woodsheds, his sister’s records, and his early, early days as a multi-instrumentalist.

And then check out his great new double record, “Soul Searching”!
