Download “The Memphis Issue” Digital Edition


Videos by American Songwriter

American Songwriter’s latest print offering, “The Memphis Issue,” is now available for digital download.

Our cover story for this edition centers on Stax Records and its classic songwriting team of Isaac Hayes and David Porter, a serendipitous pairing that yielded such iconic hits as “Soul Man” and “Hold on, I’m Comin.’”

Elsewhere, we trace the career of the inimitable Al Green, from secular crooner to a Gospel-tinged man of the cloth. You’ll also find a feature on the Memphis punk extravaganza GonerFest, as well profiles on Luther Dickinson, Julien Baker, William Bell, James Carr and Memphis Minnie.

The print edition arrives on newsstands July 12.
