About the Event
We say it all the time... this is one band you do not want to miss! Here it is!! Michael Monroe Goodman is name your going to see up in big lights in NO time! So get your group together and head to the Moon for some of the best two-stepping night you'll ever have!
From Buck to Johnny, to Waylon and Willie, to Merle and Lefty, the very best country music has shown the rich complexity of life. Steel backbones and breaking hearts. The true grit that helps people survive every difficult day. And those qualities haven’t been forgotten. They’re there in every word and note of Michael Monroe Goodman.
He’s always made country music his priority, ever since playing his first professional gig at the age of 15, on Live at Libby’s in Maysville, Kentucky. “I’d been writing songs for a couple of years by then,” Goodman recalls, “and this show had hosted quite a few ‘90s stars before they were famous. I auditioned on the Friday night, did one song. They liked me and I performed on the radio from there the next night. I did that show a few more times and I knew my heart was set on country music. It was my voice. Right out of high school I joined a band and started really learning my craft.”
As the songs on The Flag, the Bible, and Bill Monroe show, he’s mastered his craft. The music and the lyrics are honed, and the pedal steel adds its beautiful cries. But the raw emotion, the stuff of life, always lies just beneath the surface. This is real.“I want to paint a picture,” Goodman says. “Country music can be so personal, so timeless. If it talks to people then the song has a lasting magic, it never stops being relevant. This album is about who I am, the things that are important to me. The Flag, the Bible, and Bill Monroe: I’m proud to be an American, I’m a committed Christian, and Bill Monroe has always been an inspiration. Maybe I’m carrying on those things Nashville’s left behind these days. But I think this is real roots country, music that means something.”
