Biography

Steven Benjamin Goodman (July 25, 1948 – September 20, 1984) – known as Steve Goodman – was an American folk music singer-songwriter from Chicago. Goodman was diagnosed with leukemia while attending college, and he set out to make the most of the time he had left to write music. Hearing a report that the Illinois Central Railroad was planning to eliminate, for lack of riders, a well-loved train that ran from Chicago to New Orleans, Goodman, a prolific writer, penned "City of New Orleans," a song made popular by Arlo Guthrie and Willie Nelson, for which Goodman won his first Grammy Award posthumously in 1985, with a second Grammy awarded to him in 1988 for Unfinished Business. Steven Goodman is survived by his wife and three daughters.
