Episode 382: Shooter Jennings' 'Shooter'; In Conversation with Wheeler Walker Jr.

Shooter Jennings is a man of many moods and talents, but on his new album Shooter, he's returning to his Country roots. A celebration of the Hank Williams Jr, and all of the troublemakers and rabble-rousers that came before and after, Shooter is bursting with debauchery, heartache, and something sorely missing from today's Country music: fun.

PLUS! We're sitting down with the true savior of Country music - Wheeler Walker, Jr. - to discuss his upcoming album and tour, why the Nashville machine continues to give one of it's own the cold shoulder, and much, much more.

Episode 347: By The Way, I Forgive You - Brandi Carlile

On her latest LPBrandi Carlile isn't so much returning to her roots as she is challenging the idea of what folk and Americana can be, and maybe should become. Sonically and stylistically diverse, the Dave Cobb produced By The Way, I Forgive You is a seemingly unconnected collection of songs that, taken together, packs an emotional wallop unlike anything in Carlile's career. 

PLUS! Eduardo goes crate digging and comes back with a killer track from Italian singer/songwriter Pino Daniele that Steely Dan fans are gonna love!


Episode 327: From A Room: Volume 2 - Chris Stapleton

Episode 327: From A Room: Volume 2 - Chris Stapleton

In 2017, Country was king, and there was no more significant player than Chris Stapleton. For the follow up to his Grammy-winning 2015 album Traveller, Stapleton teamed up again with producer Dave Cobb - the new proprietor of the historic Studio A in Nashville - to craft a record that was worthy of that room's history. 

The result was a two-part LP that represents the scope of Stapleton's musical identity. Where Volume 1, was a collection of newer songs, and an extension of his work on his debut, Volume 2, finds Stapleton not just mining his own past as a songwriting by putting to wax some of his oldest songs, but his history as a music fan through some choice covers.

Join Kevin, Marcus, and Eduardo as we finish out our album reviews for 2017 on a high note, talking about Chris Stapleton's powerful sophomore release, From A Room.

Episode 284: From A Room: Volume 1 - Chris Stapleton

After years of working in "the biz," in 2015 songwriter Chris Stapleton finally staked his claim as one of the biggest names in Nashville with his debut LP, Traveller. Now he's back for round two with super-producer Dave Cobb in tow and one of the most legendary rooms in recording history to help guide the way.

Has Stapleton deliver another mega-hit for the country machine, or is his sophomore effort something else completely? Eduardo and Marcus are joining Kevin in the basement to work through the masterful, yet often frustrating, next step for one of music's most powerful voices.
