If you've ever lost someone close to you, had the experience of going through their things and uncovering parts of their life you didn't know about or discovered unfinished projects they were working on, you might find an inkling of your experience in Jody White's.
His father — singer-songwriter Tony Joe White — passed away in 2018. After, he found a bunch of Tony Joe's unreleased, unfinished songs.
