The myth comes down with Jerry Joseph's 'Dead Confederate'

Jerry Joseph usually tours constantly, but he has been happily enjoying his time at home in Portland. He has a new album, "The Beautiful Madness," which includes his takes on societal issues.

Four years ago, when he wrote the song "Dead Confederate," Portland singer/songwriter Jerry Joseph never envisioned the furor over historic statues, symbols and place names would engulf our nation.

It's been an issue, yes, but not to the extent we see today with social justice movements.
