    Lori McKenna

    Lori McKenna

    One of Nashville’s most beloved singer/songwriters, Grammy-winner Lori McKenna joins us from her home just outside Boston to talk about her brand-new album, The Balladeer, due out July 24. The first song from the project, “When You’re My Age,” featuring her frequent co-writers Hillary Lindsey and Liz Rose, is a love letter from parents to their kids as they grow up and move forward with their own lives. Grab your tissues for this one. We discuss the stories behind several of the songs on her album including a tribute to her sister, “Marie,” and “The Dream”, which was inspired by storyline from the hit NBC show This Is Us. We talk about Lori's approach to songwriting, her friendship with Hillary and Liz, and she shares with us where she goes to find inspiration when she feels stuck creatively. Lori’s songs “Girl Crush” (Little Big Town) and “Humble and Kind” (Tim McGraw) were decade-defining songs in country music, and she continues to pen new songs with Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood and Sara Bareilles.

    We also talk with Lori about her experience writing songs for Lady Gaga’s A Star Is Born, and what it was like holding Oprah’s hand while Faith Hill sang a gospel song on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

    Triumph Over Tragedy

    Triumph Over Tragedy

    Miles Adcox, Crystal Miller and Laura Hutfless are here to talk about Triumph Over Tragedy, a first-of-its-kind, trauma-informed therapy program providing tools, support and a safe community offering hope and healing for those affected by mass trauma. Thanks to private donations to The Onsite Foundation, the workshop is fully-funded by scholarships.

    As a survivor of Columbine and a member of the foundation’s Survivor Advisory Council, Crystal shares with us a detailed account of her experience during the attack on her school and tells us how the Triumph Over Tragedy program was designed to address the way trauma affects the brain and the body in different ways for everyone.

    Triumph Over Tragedy is inspired by the life of Austin Eubanks, who was also a Columbine survivor.  Austin had a vision to create a safe place for survivors of mass shootings to find hope and healing.  Austin passed away before his vision could become a reality, but his family and friends, including Laura, continue to carry on his legacy through this program.

    Laura and Miles share resources for survivors, family members and first responders. We also talk about grief, community, empathy and how we can show up for each other in times of loss, trauma or suffering. Our hope is that in sharing these stories, you would know that you are not alone.

    NOTE: The beginning of this conversation contains graphic discussions of the April 20, 1999 Columbine mass shooting tragedy. If you have been affected by mass shootings, gun violence or other traumas, this language could be activating and we recommend starting this episode around the 30 minute mark.

    Resources available: The Onsite Foundation, Everytown, Moms Demand Action.

Fabulously Fun

I came across this just a few weeks ago for the Lori McKenna interview. Interviews can be tricky because a host has to allow the artist to answer questions but also keep the interview moving along without appearing being rude or disinterested. A lot of podcasts are IMO stale or forced. This feels like a conversation among friends. Refreshing and entertaining.
