Mary Gauthier's Making Connections

Mary Gauthier spent election day making jalapeno cornbread for a potluck of "left wing liberal people" to watch the election results. Gauthier lives in Nashville in the very red state of Tennessee, so she's acutely aware of her outsider status. It hasn't taken an election to bring those thoughts to the foreground, though. For the singer/songwriter who grew up in Baton Rouge, that sense of being unlike the others has informed her music.
