We are so honored to exclusively premiere our dear friend Kelly Lang's 'Behind The Song' featuring "Midnight Train To Georgia" by Gladys Knight. Lang's rendition of "Midnight Train To Georgia" was released on June 3rd, 2022.

"I’m so grateful that Center Stage magazine is premiering my video of Behind The Song , “Midnight Train To Georgia.” If the fans out there are like me, I just love to hear the backstories of how my favorite songs come to be, and I hope you all will enjoy seeing this as much as I did making it."~ Kelly

Music inspires everyone uniquely. While one song may make you cry because of the heartfelt story within it, another might give you the words to express how you have felt because you can relate to the situation it contains. We all have our favorite songs that we gravitate towards depending on our moods. As fans, we often wonder what our favorite artists like to listen to and why. Lang's 'Behind The Song' is not only a glimpse into her "Why?", but it is also packed with fun information about the artist and song that you may not have known. I cannot wait for more of these videos. ~Missy

About Missy Wolf

Missy Wolf Co-Founder, Editor, Journalist & Vice President of the American Country Music Association

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
