    Brad Paisley & Clayton Kershaw

    Brad Paisley & Clayton Kershaw

    Lindsay sits down with two friends, Brad Paisley and Clayton Kershaw, for a wide-ranging conversation about the L.A. Dodgers 2020 World Series Championship, vacation mishaps, ping pong, Peyton Manning, and the one thing Clayton is changing when he takes the mound in 2021. One of Country Music’s biggest stars and hit songwriters, Brad Paisley is a 14-time CMA and 3-time Grammy award winning artist. He has had 24 number one hits, sold upwards of 12 million records and is a member of the Grand Ole Opry. He also happens to be one of the L.A. Dodgers biggest fans. Clayton Kershaw is arguably the greatest pitcher of his generation - an 8-time All Star and 3-time Cy Young winner, and one of only 2 pitchers in the past 25 years to win the MVP.  Kershaw most recently led the Dodgers team to the 2020 World Series Championship, snapping a 32-year drought for the LA baseball franchise.

Real talk

I love, love, the real talk that happens on this podcast! The episode with Danica and Alanis was like having drinks with my besties! Listening, learning, and I even had a little ‘oh my gosh! That’s it’ moment!
Great work!
