Great Conversations About Americana and other Styles of Music
I’ve been a regular listener for since the early episodes with Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakum, and others as Chris was searching for the magic behind the Bakersfield sound. That has expanded into a broader discussion of songwriting, guitars, and modern roots music.
Interviews himself, too
Many solid guests and frequent insiders discussions about gear and music industry. Love that! Not an FF fan and had no awareness of the host, but he talks about himself enough, and often answers the questions that he’s asking, so much of the content seems self-congratulatory. Highlights: Colter Wall performance, JTE interview, and individual Stray Cats interviews.
Chris has a great podcast.
Great time listening to this podcast. It’s opened my mind and ears to Americana music. Love the Butch Walker episode and the boxing ones!
Stay up Chris and keep doing what you are doing.
