A third-generation firefighter, Jason Byrd has always had another fire burning within … as a traditional country music singer, songwriter and performer. Mentored by none other than George Jones, Byrd has played stages across the US and Canada, opening for powerhouse artists such as Tracy Lawrence, Loretta Lynn, Mark Chesnutt, Dierks Bentley and, of course, George Jones. Jason has appeared on the world-famous Grand Ole Opry and made multiple TV appearances. In 2019, Jason retired from his post as a Battalion Chief of the Tallahassee Fire Department to focus on music. Byrd released a self-penned duet with George Jones called, “Better Life," which he'd kept under wraps for years prior. The song was ready for release just prior to Jones' passing and Byrd held onto it out of respect for his friend. In 2021, with the blessing of Nancy Jones, he released the tune, which was nominated for Single of the Year at the Josie Music Awards. Jason was invited to perform the song recently for celebrity guests at a VIP dinner in Hunstville, AL prior to the Still Playin' Possum concert marking a decade since the passing of George Jones. Jason currently has two songs nominated for the 2023 Josie Music Awards Song of the Year and continues to delight real country fans with a full tour schedule. After working several shows with Lauren Spring, another Florida-based writer, Byrd chose to record and release “Gulf Coastin'” as a Summer song for 2023. www.jasonbyrdmusic.com © 2023 Lotta Dogs Productions LLC Showrunner and Executive Producer Emeritus: Tom Sabella Producer and Host (the guy who has a face for podcasting): Bob Bender Management Representation: Chuck Thompson for Thompson Entertainment Group, LLC Co-Producer - Audio/Video Editor (the man behind the curtain): Mark Sabella Director of Video and Continuity (the brains of the entire operation): Deborah Halle Marketing and Social Media (all knowing): Sarah Fleshner for 362 Entertainment All Around Problem Solver (and Mental Health Therapist for us): Connie Ribas Recorded inside what could be an old beat up Airstream Trailer located somewhere on what's left of Music Row in Nashville TN (Man we sure do miss Noshville, and the Longhorn Steakhouse) Mixed and Mastered at Music Dog Studios in Nashville, TN Editing and Post at Midnight Express Studio located in Olian, NY Production Sound Design: Keith Stark Voice Over and Promo: Lisa Fuson Special Thanks to the creator and founder of the podcast, Tom Sabella, along with Traci Snow for producing and hosting over 100 episodes of the original "Business Side of Music" podcast and trusting us to carry on their legacy.

Welcome to the Cadillac Jack – My Second Act podcast. Caddy lost his phone. Not that he would've texted you back anyways, according to Donna. Keyboard warriors. We have all known one. But there is one in particular that is really irking Donna over on The Bear 92.5's Facebook page. You can call her all the names in the world you want…but just don't call her this one. Also, Caddy lost his phone. We think we know where it is, but it needs to be tracked down. It reminds Donna of that one time she lost hers at Costco. In the crab claw section. On top of the ice. And you know we are going to have a Morgan Wallen segment. All that and much, much more on today's jam packed episode! Where is the strangest place you have put/lost your phone? Let us know. Call or text 770-464-6024.

Country music's had a massive year. Seriously, not since 1958 have we seen so many country tunes topping the Hot 100 in a single year – and it's not been without its share of controversy. Leading this country music revival? Morgan Wallen, for starters. He bounced back from being shunned for dropping a racial slur with his number one single “Last Night.” Then there's Jason Aldean with “Try That in a Small Town,” a song and music video that which unsubtly lynching references. Next up, newcomer Oliver Anthony Music dropped “Richmond North of Richmond,” weaving in QAnon references and welfare shaming into a track largely about government distrust. On a lighter but still contentious note, Luke Combs covered the mega 90s hit “Fast Car,” turning Tracy Chapman into the first black woman with a number one country hit. And let's not forget Zach Bryan and Kacey Musgraves' beautiful duet “I Remember Everything” about a past romance, which also climbed to the top. Many of these songs have just been nominated for Grammys, including “Last Night,” “Fast Car,” and “I Remember Everything.” When all this started happening, we were scratching our heads. Country songs topping the Hot 100? Sure, but not this many in quick succession. Something felt different. And we think we've finally figured it out after diving into Chris Molanphy's new book: Old Town Road. Chris, a music and charts critic, author of Slate's Why Is This Song No. 1 column, and host of the excellent music podcast Hit Parade, explores country music's chart history in his latest book “Old Town Road,” part of Duke's Single Series. He zeroes in on Lil Nas X's 2018 “Old Town Road” and its 2019 Billy Ray Cyrus-amped remix as a case study. So, to get the lowdown on 2023's country chart toppers, we've got to rewind to 2018 and re-examine “Old Town Road” with Chris Molanphy's insights.

The Country Music Hall of Fame is dedicated to preserving and promoting country music in all its various incarnations.We talked with RJ Smith, a writer & editor for the museum about his job there (he just started!) as well as the biographies he's written on Chuck Berry and James Brown.
Cody Jinks (@codyjinks) sat down with Bobby Bones to talk about his music journey! He went the grassroots efforts way of playing non-stop shows for 15 years and never signed a record deal, and shared why he thinks that helped him find success. Cody explains why he always invested in himself and the turning point in his career where he realized he was doing better than he thought. He also recalls how on his 2-year-old son's birthday the song "Loud and Heavy" was inspired. Cody also shares why he feels like the shift in country music to be more authentic benefited his career, the artists he thinks are the most real with their music right now, why he feels like he's just starting to get to know his teenage kids and he talks about the process of making his new record!
