"All in all, it's been a goodnight, moon."
Legendary Dallas songwriter and open mic host Steve Jackson sits down with Emmeline to discuss his award-winning composition and the title track of his second album, "Goodnight Moon." He talks about the young woman who eventually put lyrics to his lullaby-like chords, the importance of editing, the rewards inherent in allowing other creatives into one's sacred space of songwriting, and being open to the influences of other musicians--with special and consistent commentary from his pet bird. He also reveals the occupations of the other Steve Jacksons with which he is frequently confused. You'll be mesmerized by this candid conversation between friends about how a song's story evolves over time.
