The music is good, but the irregularity is annoying

This used to be one of my favorite podcast when it was updated weekly. Now it goes for weeks without anything, and then they drop two or three at once and they're a couple of months old. Hopefully they will get caught back up and on a regular basic again.

I lovelovelove Music City Roots! Thanks to them I've seen so many of my favorite Nashville (and beyond) artists, like Jon Byrd, the Mark Robinson Band, Eric Brace, Peter Cooper, Thomm Jutz, Erin Rae, Audrey Auld, Phil Lee, Amelia White, Kevin Gordon, Anne McCue,Tom Mason, David Olney, Sergio Webb, Wild Ponies, Steve Conn, Stephen Simmons, Dave Coleman, Tim Carroll, Luella.. I know I'm forgetting some but there are SO many great artists that I've seen/heard of on these shows. And the production is top notch... the sound, the over all look, the wonderful interviews with Craig Havighurst. Americana at its best! Thx MCR!!!!!!
