The Current Presents: Valerie June KCMP

Tennessee native Valerie June feels a deep connection — if not a responsibility — to her home state's musical traditions, as she points to pioneers such as Memphis Minnie, Elvis Presley and Booker T. Jones. "I have a lot to live up to, being from Memphis," she says.

While touring in support of her new album, Pushin' Against a Stone (co-written and produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys), June recently stopped by The Current's studios to perform a few songs, including "You Can't Be Told."
