These two Georgia-based singer/songwriter/guitarists are on a "Kickin' & Singin'" tour together, for shows in Asheville Friday and Charlotte Saturday. We can't disagree with what's said about Michelle: "raucous and jubilant - somewhere between Lucinda Williams and Shelby Lynne comes Malone alternating between soulful ballads and rowdy, riffy blasters."- ROLLING STONE

Charlotte has an ambitious goal.  A goal aiming for a zero-carbon city for fleet and buildings, a strategic action plan, by 2030.  The Queen City is receiving technical support and resources towards Climate Change, after making a small list of cities across the nation to do so.  During this More To The Story from January 9, 2019- Charlotte Observer Government and Politics Reporter- Ely Portillo is guest.  An update on Interstate 77 toll lanes is also discussed.

WFAE Public Radio Charlotte's Steve Harrison (Reporter) is following the current voter fraud story that involves North Carolina's Ninth Congressional District - Republican Mark Harris and Democrat Dan McCready.  It seems like with every new day comes a new addition to this incredible and alarming story.  The biggest issue in this story is what took place in Bladen County.  Harrison provides everything he knew at the time of Dec. 12, 2018 when this edition of More To The Story aired.

Singer/songwriter Vanessa Peters seems to be really hitting her stride with a new album called Foxhole Prayers. "I'm a literature geek at heart and for years I've wanted to do an album somehow influenced by The Great Gatsby, but the idea seemed much to nerdy and abstract. But after I re-read it last year, it dawned on me that we were literally reliving the Gatsby years."  She plays Wednesday in Charlotte, and Thursday in Knoxville (and Italy a week later!)
