Addie Moore grew up in rural Northwest Georgia surrounded by country, bluegrass, and gospel music. Like a backslidden Baptist, she distanced himself from his upbringing for the longest time, turning her attention to underground rock ‘n’ roll. Moore first rediscovered her musical roots as a public history graduate student (University of West Georgia, 2011). As an intern with the Georgia Humanities Council, she helped plan a Georgia tour of the Smithsonian’s travelling New Harmonies exhibit. She’s since become an Atlanta-based freelance writer and dreams of working in Nashville as a public historian.
