Real music

These guys get it. They talk about diverse artists and music you won't find on the radio with laid-back conversation. If it's good, they'll talk about it.

Real Country Music Fans!

Great job y’all! Love the variety that is brought from all three of them and the back and forth dialogue! Amazing music recommendations and these guys are true country music fans. Very similar to whiskey riff raff podcast. Love the personal stories and the chill vibe of the conversations.

Gatekeepers

3 guys with no musical backgrounds or any experience in the music industry or the country music culture. They treat their opinions as the musical authority of country. The whole show is “this is a country song, that isn’t a country song” based on no first hand knowledge or experience.
