Michael Monroe Goodman, currently starring as young Johnny Cash in the joint Mercury Theater/Theatre at the Center production of Ring of Fire—the Music of Johnny Cash, is going all Cory Goodrich, turning to the crowd funding site indiegogo.com to help fund his new, original country music album, “The Flag, The Bible, and Bill Monroe.”
Goodman is looking to raise $8,500 to fund the album’s production costs and is offering premiums to contributors. “I have spent almost a year recording this album,” Goodman said. “Most of the recording has been in Chicago and mixing is being finished up by the legendary Alex Hall from Hi Style records who is a staple in the Chicago music scene.
“By contributing you will be launching a really great album that is choked full of great stories and emotions, some of them personally biographical for me. You may have heard me sing some of these songs live, or acoustically online, but now you will get to hear them with the full band anytime you want when you have your very own copy of the album.”

Readers of ChicagolandMusicalTheatre.com will recall that Jeff winner Goodrich recently went a similar tack to help fund her album WOMAN and launch a website (gobeautiful.net) promoting positive body image and self esteem for women of all ages.
