Backstage at Newport Folk Fest, the delightful singer/songwriter shared why the festival feels like home and the out-of-this-world story behind one of her most cosmic songs.

Valerie June turned heads a couple times over the weekend at this year's Newport Folk Festival with her soulful Saturday set and again on Sunday night as part of Jon Batiste's Songs For Change spectacular. The Memphis, Tenn., native stopped by to see the Recording Academy backstage to talk about why the annual festival feels so much like home and to tell the story of how she wrote "Astral Plane."
