    Midland's Moment + Taylor and the Chicks

    Midland's Moment + Taylor and the Chicks

    This week, Grady is lamenting Brad Paisley being out as host of the CMA Awards, talking about the Dixie Chicks' appearance on Taylor Swift's album, and the arrival of Midland's sophomore album. It's a short one, but sweet too.

    Hell Wrong

    Hell Wrong

    Grady is talking about Tyler Childers having the #1 album in all of country music, Blake Shelton's awful new song "Hell Right,' and breaking down why it's so fun to be a country fan right now. Plus, new music from Morgan Wallen, Midland, Jon Pardi, Miranda Lambert, and even Taylor Swift.

    The Oh Riley Factor

    The Oh Riley Factor

    Grady processes an interview that never actually happened, which somehow resulted in him seeing Brad Paisley live over the weekend. Plus, he covers new music by Kip Moore, Miranda Lambert, Lady Antebellum, and the ever-wayward Zac Brown.

    Tyler Childers and the Magical Wooden Camper

    Tyler Childers and the Magical Wooden Camper

    Grady gets emo because he misinterpreted a Tyler Childers lyric, but he also loved the album Country Squire and talks about it. Plus, he mentions new music from Luke Combs, Riley Green, and Mike and the Moonpies.
