Plant Riverside District – which is widely known as Savannah’s Entertainment District – is pleased to host rising country singer-songwriter and guitarist Natalie Goodman for a new weekly residency, which is free and open to the public. Goodman performs live on Saturdays from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the outdoor Pavilion Stage at Plant Riverside District.
“We’re thrilled to host such a talented artist at Plant Riverside District every Saturday and encourage anyone who loves live music to check out Natalie Goodman,” said Tyler Gray, Director of Entertainment at JW Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District. “She’s an incredibly accomplished musician and songwriter who delights audiences with her impressive voice and unique perspective.”
Originally from Savannah, Goodman was honored in 2019 as a “Modern Country Rising Star” at the Josie Music Awards, the most prestigious independent music awards. She is currently an official nominee for “Female Country Vocalist of the Year” at the 2022 Josie Music Awards, which will be held at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tenn. in October.
In 2021, Goodman released her single “Love You From a Distance,” co-written with her sister, Catherine Goodman. Their single earned a spot on FM radio and has more than 100,000 Spotify streams. Her hit single “Just a Friend” reached #6 on Nashville’s premier independent internet country radio station. Earlier this year, this buzzworthy artist released a new single, “I Did It to Myself,” co-written with Catherine Goodman and producer Michael Walker.
“Music has always been an important part of my life, “Goodman said. “Singing and writing has given me an outlet her to channel my emotions and to deal with life’s struggles.”
Goodman graduated from The Savannah Country Day School and the University of Georgia, where she played on the varsity Women’s Soccer Team for four years. She earned national attention after performing the National Anthem at a number of University of Georgia sporting events and was featured on ESPN as “the singing soccer player.” In addition to writing and performing music, Goodman is currently a third-year student at Mercer University School of Medicine.
“Music is something that is so personal and to be able to share it with everyone makes it that much more special,” Goodman said. “There is no better feeling than having someone tell me that my music has touched them or that they can relate to the words I write.”
