A Podcast about Country Music and the people who make it.
My name is Rob Cain and I'm your host for The FreightTrain Podcast. I was a booking agent and Tour Manager for a regional act in the South East US that was signed to a record label in Nashville, TN for about 5 years. Along the way I met tons of people and created relationships that would have otherwise never existed.

In this podcast I'm going to sit down with a lot of those folks I met and respect and get their story and see how they feel about country music today. I'll also talk about what music I think is not being appreciated enough and give my opinion on new and existing music. Thanks for listening!
