I sat down with Torrin Daniels and Shawn Swain at our AirBnB in Austin after Cosmic Country wrapped a 2 week tour with them in Denver and Colorado. We discussed some timeless road stories, Joe Rogan jokes, hunting in Montana, their creative process, and the story behind their new album (INSERT LINK HERE) released on 4/29/22.
