Tyler Goforth’s "Forty Miles to Macon" is to Macon, Georgia as Merle Haggard’s "Okie from Muskogee" is to Muskogee, Oklahoma. This true story of Tyler’s visit to his ancestors is a reminder to us all to seek out our heritage and make every attempt to understand our history. More than a music video, "Forty Miles to Macon" is a short musical travelogue that highlights some of Georgia's historic places from The Old Mill in Juliette, Georgia, which was featured in the Oscar-nominated 1991 film Fried Green Tomatoes, to Macon’s historic Riverside Cemetery, which was established in 1887. Tyler and his father had always talked about visiting Tyler's Great-grandparents’ gravesite. Then, one sunny afternoon, the father-son pair picked up Tyler’s uncle in Jackson, Georgia and began the 40-mile road trip to the Riverside Cemetery. Tyler’s great-grandfather, Charles McKenzie Goforth, was a superintendent of a brick company in Macon, but had a calling later in life to become a traveling Baptist minister. Charles was one of 21 children and his father fought in the American Civil War. Charles’ wife, Annabelle Hall Goforth, was a homemaker and they had seven children. In "Forty Miles to Macon", we follow Tyler Goforth as he writes his Macon anthem while embarking on the trip once again.
