    Episode 7: Sydney Adams

    Episode 7: Sydney Adams

    There's no better way to describe Sydney Adams distinct country sound other than instantaneously classic. Sydney's sonic qualities harken back to the golden era of country music; to artists such as Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline. While her lyrical content breathes new life into this old familiar sound, being more a kind to twenty first century artists like Kacey Musgraves.  Please don't be lead astray be all of these flattering comparisons, because Sydney Adams has a unique talent that is all her own. Thank you so much Sydney for setting down with Real Kentucky Music to share the stories behind your masterfully crafted works of art.

    Episode 5: Grayson Jenkins

    Episode 5: Grayson Jenkins

    The lyrics of John Prine echo through our minds when we think of our next guest "Daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County." For Grayson Jenkins Muhlenberg Co. is not just a place but rather a place intime, a time when life was simple in that one room church were he attended regular Sunday services with his mother and grandmother.  A time when a boys dream of being the next star in a CMT music video was just firminting and the path that was laid out before him hadn't yet been realized. Jenkins' success as a singer songwriter has not fell on deaf ears here in the bluegrass state and you can catch him playing  the most intimate venues in the state, to seeing him on the stage at some of Kentuckys largest festivals.  We enjoyed our time with Grayson and we hope that you do as well.

It’s refreshing to hear an authentic, in depth podcast, not only about music, but life in general.
Listening to Tim talk to his guest is like sitting in on a conversation with old friends.

Looking forward to hearing more

This was a great episode. Tim Parks has an easygoing approach, while still asking good questions. This is proven by how much of a great guest Nicholas Jamerson is. The episode is a perfect blend of casual and informative.
