Encore: Macy Gray joins host Talia Schlanger

Macy Gray’s 1999 hit song “I Try” made her into a massive star and Grammy award-winner. But those who have followed her career know that some of her best songs arrived in the twenty years since. She’s consistently grown, changed, and reinvented herself with new music, and her latest album, Ruby, is proof. Hear the amazing story of how her whole career almost never happened; she was a single mom of three when she got her big break. Plus, she performs songs with her band.
