Our first ever LIVE podcast taping went down in Wichita and we had the best time!! It was so awesome to have listeners from all over Kansas join us and even cooler that some traveled from Texas, California, Oklahoma, Colorado, and West Virginia to be a part of this special evening! Amy is on a journey to really LIVE LIFE, to GET UNSTUCK, to MAKE A MOVE, and assess how she wants to SHOW UP in the world, so those are the 4 things she talked about: LIVING LIFE: What does it look like to really live your life? (ft. Dierks Bentley's thoughts on his song ‘Living') GETTING UNSTUCK with @KatDefatta: What have you not been able to admit to yourself? (ft.Walker Hayes' thoughts on his song ‘Beer In The Fridge') MAKING A MOVE with @CristiDozier: What is the next right step for you? (ft. Nicolle Galyon's thoughts on her song ‘Winner') SHOWING UP: How do you want to be remembered? (ft. Little Big Town's thoughts on their song ‘Rich Man') Journaling has been a huge part of Amy's healing the last couple of years, so we are very grateful to have writing prompts for each thing from writing expert & author, @AllyFallon LIVING LIFE: Write a hypothetical journal entry for a day that you're really living your life the way you want to live it. Example: What do you do on that day, who do you talk to, what do you not do, where are you, how do you feel about yourself, what decisions would you make, what conversation would you have? Take 5 minutes to imagine this day and write it as if it already happened. GETTING UNSTUCK: What is keeping you stuck and what it might look like to let go of it? MAKING A MOVE: Make a list of 10 things that would feel like winning to you even though it might look like losing to someone else? SHOWING UP: Imagine this is your last day on earth - who do you want by your side - and what do you hope they remember about you? Books have also been helpful during this time, so Amy put together book recommendations for each thing as well: LIVING LIFE: Hero On A Mission by Donald Miller GETTING UNSTUCK: The Body Keeps The Score by Bessel A. van der Kolk MAKING A MOVE: Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed.

How does an adoptee who grew up with an outrageous passion for rock-n-roll end up writing giant country hits? How does a guy who had no music-business connections whatsoever find his way to his dream of being on hit radio? Your attitude about your circumstances helps a whole lot. According to Harding, “Being adopted has given me an incredibly optimistic view of life. Whenever life throws me a curveball, a disappointment, or a roadblock, I remind myself that I was adopted by the Hardings (the greatest parents ever), and that the universe has had my back since day one.” J.T. HARDING was born and raised in South Detroit. While other kids were on the baseball field, J.T. was in his basement, jumping around to MTV videos and trying to write his own songs. He put together several bands in high school and then moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dream. J.T. made his first demo tape with prize money he earned by winning the VH1 game show Rock & Roll Jeopardy! He has since written several chart-topping hits, including “Smile” with Uncle Kracker, “Somewhere in My Car” with Keith Urban, “Somewhere with You” and “Bar at the End of the World” for Kenny Chesney, Dierks Bentley's “Different for Girls,” Jake Owen's “Alone with You,” and Blake Shelton's number-one song “Sangria.” J.T.'s new book, Party Like a Rockstar: The Crazy, Coincidental, Hard-Luck, and Harmonious Life of a Songwriter is available everywhere books are sold.

We cried, we laughed and we told stories... this episode with guest Shanna Jackman is filled with emotion and information. Along her road performing music, Shanna has worn many hats including a reserve police officer and dispatcher for her local police department. Her dedication to public service is second to none! She even has a tribute song that she co-wrote that is dedicated to Public Safety Dispatchers (first responders) that has surpassed 3 Million views. Shanna, Lance Carpenter and Ayla Brown wrote "Answer The Call" to honor those that are calmly there when you need them during your most critical moments. The emotional roller coaster that Shanna went through during our interview was hard for John and Mark to watch. Shanna was very close to Paul Monti a Gold Star Father. Paul passed away at the age of 76 just days before we sat down. If you don't know the story, here you go... Massachusetts native, US Army Sergeant First Class Jared Monti, died while serving in Afghanistan in 2006. Jared was awarded the Medal of Honor in 2009. Jared's father, Paul, has driven Jared's truck since his death as a way to remember and feel connected to him. Paul's story inspired the 2013 #1 Country Song recorded by Lee Brice, “I Drive Your Truck” written by Jessi Alexander, Connie Harrington, and Jimmy Yeary. The truck, a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 V8 became a symbol of a father's love and a place would take friends for rides and tell the story of Jared's life. Shanna was fortunate to be able to spend time riding in the truck with Paul. Shanna and Paul became friends through their shared experiences supporting The Gold Star Families and all military memorial organizations. Shanna Jackman, while known for her many performances of the National Anthem (for the Boston Bruins, Red Sox, Celtics, Revolution and many other numerous charity, Military and sporting events), is also a Nashville recording artist having released her first self titled EP in 2013. Shanna has had the opportunity to be featured with artists such as Ronnie Dunn, Blake Shelton, Sara Evans, Gretchen Wilson, Dierks Bentley, Alan Jackson, Darryl Worley, Lee Brice, Little Big Town, Collin Raye, Jo-Dee Messina, and Steve Azar. Check out "In My Truck" and hear a true story about her Ford F150 and how this girl left her ex in a cloud of dust! Listen in to Episode 16 and hear some great stories from Shanna and hear some advice for aspiring artists. Find more about Shanna at https://shannajackman.com/home.

Launa has a new name and it is Launa Drama because people at the Dierks Bentley concert called her that. We are playing the Whisper game for tickets to see Brantley Gilbert and Five Finger Death Punch at Amalie Arena in November. One of us will have headphones on and someone else will whisper a phrase to see if the person wearing the headphones can figure out what they are saying. We are playing all this week at 8:20. We are also giving away tickets to Disney World all this week at 7:40.
We got a chance to talk to Dierks Bentley this morning. He will be at the Amp on Saturday night, but we got a couple of minutes to talk to him this morning. We gave out tickets to see Dierks all week. We played a game called "Bet For Bentley". Launa had to name 5 Disney animated movies in 15 seconds this morning. Did she do it?
We talked to country music newcomer, Nate Smith, this morning. We wanted to know the most famous person in his phone. He didn't want to give up a name at first, but eventually he did. We have tickets to see Dierks Bentley at 7:40 and 8:25 all this week. At 8:25 we play a game called Bet on Bentley. We get a caller on the phone to see if they think someone on the show can do something or not. Today J.R. asked Launa to name 5 Alan Jackson songs in 10 seconds. Find out if she can do it.
Dierks Bentley will be at the Amp this Saturday and we are giving away tickets at 7:40 and 8:25 every day this week. The very honest Evan told us that he is loyal listener to the 7:15 Second Date Update and has heard all the wrong things guys do on a first date. He stressed to us that he did not fall in that category when it came to his date with Trista. Last week we heard the story about three guys that caught a 18 foot python in the Everglades. Well, we got one of the guys, Joshua, on the phone to talk about the experience.
Derek may have been the most interesting and hilarious human we have ever had on our 7:15 Second Date Update! He also is someone that made it very clear to us that we will never look at ZooTampa the same. We are giving away tickets to see Dierks Bentley all this week at 8:25. He will be at the Amp on August 20th. We are playing a game galled "I Love Gold". Dierks' new song is called "Gold". We will describe something that is gold and you will have to identify what it is.
Plus, Obie's Wife and Nanny aren't the same when it comes to left overs in the fridge after so many days. Obie admits he can only eat after one day and trashes it after that! And a 2ND DATE UPDATE where both of them cried on the line!
Dierks Bentley has spent a lot of time in San Diego through the years, so much time that he even has a favorite taco shop. We talked to Dierks this morning about his time in San Diego, his new single "Gold" and drinking out of the Stanley Cup.
Dierks Bentley is on to talk about his new song ‘Gold', hosting CMA Fest tonight and if he's ever forgotten the name of a city he's performing a concert in. A listener calls in to tell the story of her friend who is a huge fan of the show and how she got engaged in Bobby's parking spot. Teresa is on to play a round of 2 Truths and Lie for a chance to win $5k if she can guess who the liar is between Bobby, Amy and Eddie.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
WTOP Entertainment Reporter Jason Fraley chats with country music superstar Dierks Bentley, who performs live tomorrow night at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland. They discuss his countless hits, including "What Was I Thinking?," "Settle for a Slowdown," "Lot of Leavin' Left to Do," "Drunk on a Plane" and "Burning Man."
Today I'm bringing you a conversation with one of the most recorded pedals steel players in modern times - Russ Pahl. Russ has played on all the great T-Bone Burnett records of the past bunch of years, and has also recorded for the likes of Sturgill Simpson, Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, Norah Jones, Blake Shelton, Orville Peck, Marcus King, Ceelo Green, Yola, Jim Lauderdale, Buddy Miller, and the list goes on. From his early days cutting his teeth in country bands around Minneapolis, to moving to Nashville in the 80's, he has managed to hone his craft and develop a unique sound. He scored a cool gig with Dickey Betts in the late 80's, and then Buddy Miller started calling him for his productions, and Vince Gill had him in his live band for about 5 years. It seems that after about 2000, the floodgates just opened and when someone wanted a steel player that didn't play the same licks as everyone else and had a creative approach, Russ was the one to call. We had a great conversation and get into all that stuff, and more. Enjoy, share and please subscribe wherever you get your podcasts!Listen to the accompanying playlist for this episode here, which features the artist's own music, plus many of the songs that were discussed during the show.This episode is brought to you by Izotope - check out their amazing recording software at: www.izotope.comThanks for your support, and your fearless host, Steve Dawson can be found at: www.stevedawson.ca
For Episode 9, I sat down with the rambling Jeff Beeler, a guy who defies all convention. He's an East Tennessee boy who would feel equally comfortable freestyle rapping with Lil' Wayne as singing a duet with Dierks Bentley. In fact there's a good chance he's done both. Jeff embodies one of my favorite Emerson quotes: “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” He's an adventurer, an explorer, a guy who “sucks the marrow out of life,” and for this conversation we zero in on the struggles and joys of being a father to his 18-month old daughter.
