Black & White perspectives w/ Keith Grigsby & Kristi McLelland
Wassup fam! It's been a long summer off from the podcast but today we make our return with a show unlike any other that we've ever done. I've called in two of my best church family to talk about some tough issues we see in America & across the world today. Issues like Donald Trump, police brutality on African Americans, fake news, feminism & others. About a year ago I caught an idea to discuss some of these topics but to do so with an African American man & a Caucasian woman. The idea being to hear both sides of the perspectives that the two will certainly have. Keith & Kristi are two great friends with me & Kyla, & part of that is talking & listening through tough subjects when they come up. I wanted to document one of those conversations so here it is. Take a listen if you dare.
Taylor Alexander returns!
My good buddy Taylor Alexander just got done with a TV run on NBC's The Voice, & he's here to tell us all about it. Taylor sang his own country arrangement of Cher's hit "Believe" for his blind audition that was so intriguing that Adam Levine just had to turn around & meet him. That video is in YouTube if you wanna see it. Check him out, fam!
After a few weeks off from the podcast I'm back with my good buddy & neighbor Ross Holmes. Ross is a world class fiddle player & has played with the likes of Cadillac Sky, Mumford & Sons, Warren Haynes & Bruce Hornsby just to name a few. Check it out, fam!
My new friend Timmy Jones joins the show today. Timmy plays drums in a band called For King & Country & he's also a native Tennesseean, hailing from Memphis. Timmys story goes all the way from working a retail job, to being in one of the biggest touring bands in their genre. We talk all about how that happened & much much more. This one is can't miss! Check it out fam!
My friend Dave Clayton joins the show today. Dave is a leader in our community here in Nashville as a teacher & preacher of the word of Jesus. Dave had a hand in starting a church in Nashville called ETHOS, and for about the last decade he has been a pastor there leading & teaching in downtown Nashville. In this episode Dave breaks down how ETHOS was started, how he ended up in Nashville unexpectedly, how God has provided for him & the church every step of the way & much more.
The Real Friends- Jordyn Shellhart & Baylor Wilson
Two podcast alumns re-join the show today to talk about their upcoming "real friends tour." Baylor & Jordyn are indeed real friends, but they are not a duo. #NotADuo confused yet? They've decided to take both their brands on the road this fall to do a Bluebird Cafe style performance in small venues & friends houses all over. They'll be sharing songs & stories as well as traveling together in Baylor's red Jeep everywhere they go. It's a fun concept that I'm excited to talk about today. Have a listen & let us know what you think!
Thoughtful, down home, honest
I especially loved the most recent round table discussion about race relations. It was the impetus for me finally posting a review. Excellent. I do enjoy the musical banter of the past with The Vespers band members as well. Keep it up.
best podcast ever
I freaking love this podcast, I found it looking for interviews with Judah and the Lion, I'm now starting from the begining and working my way through. I feel like I'm listening to friends talk, which is what Taylor Jones is doing! You are so real and personable, I want to be firends with you. I love learning about the behind the scenes part of nashville and music intustry. Now I love listening to The Vespers also. Keep doing your thing and hopefully I can meet you at one of your shows soon Taylor!
It's great to hear the stories.
I love indie musicians and the vespers. But I am not aware of this podcast. Saw this on Jenny&Tyler's Facebook and listened that whole episode. So much fun to get to know them more.
