Twelve Songs returns after a life-induced hiatus with a good interview with Ray Benson from the Austin-based Western swing band Asleep at the Wheel. We talked in the spring when the band was coming to New Orleans to play Jazz Fest, and you can see my story focusing on the band celebrating 50 years in the game with its Half a Hundred Years album and tour. That tour is always going on or soon to restart, so check your local listings because if they aren't coming to town, they'll get there sooner or later. We talk about COVID, which became very real for the band when members of the band were hit hard by it earlier this year. We also talk about his long-time musical friend Willie Nelson, Benson's admiration for his "Pretty Paper," and hear Christmas music by the band, Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, The Resentments (on a song by one of my favorites, Jon Dee Graham), and Folk Uke, which features Willie Nelson and Arlo Guthrie's daughters.

“Could the King of Country Music be the daughter, not the son” The 5th Tami Neilson Album is called Kingmaker. The song Kingmaker “addresses the gatekeepers and kingmakers who hold tightly to the keys of equity and minorities in the music industry and, more largely, society as a whole.” It's an amazing breakthrough album for this Canadian/New Zealand singer and songwriter. The song Beyond the Stars is about loss and grief.  Tami lost her Father.  As Tami wrote the song, she kept hearing a duet with her father's voice. She thought the best voice on the planet should sing her Father Ron's lyric – Willie Nelson.  Willie was fully in,  as he had just lost his sister. Tami moves through, blues, country, rock, and roots, with an ease that comes from years of street busking. As we talked via Zoom I was thrilled to tell her that she had the number 1 album on the CKUA Top 30.   For a total treat,  check out the Zoom video on our TDM - YouTube Channel.

There are four types of discourse in language- descriptive, narrative, expository and argumentative. And it seems that all four of those are readily present in any niche interest group on the internet these days. Anything from the way a machine works (descriptive), the exact timeline of Tolkien's world building (narrative), someone breaking down the latest universe development in a comic-book based film (expository), and argumentative which that one goes without example. If you need one, go to twitter.On the note of argumentative, some may disagree with this next statement, but the difference between good discourse and bad discourse depends on the presence of resources. Resources establish credibility in ones' opinion and or points. They inform subsequent works, and if you're bibliography and research nerd, they are excellent road maps to other sources of information that you can sink your teeth into. Really exciting stuff, I know. But, when those resources aren't made readily available, that's where discourse breaks down. Without them, there's a few formal problems, like credibility and the questioning of objectivity. Mainly, the problem- is without resources how were you able to effectively formulate your contribution to the discussion at hand, and why should others participate with you.One of the key ways we talk about music with musicians, is by asking about their influences. Influences tell us so much about who we're speaking with and how they developed.They give us a way to describe an artist's sound. Influences tell the story of formative discovery. They give us a timeline of the kinds of music that shaped an artist in different eras. Influences allow us to argue what was ultimately important in flows of time and culture. See where I'm going with this? Musical influences are just one part, but a big one in terms of musical resources.Artists don't owe us that information. We know that. "What are your influences?" Is a boring question and its asked in pretty much every interview. They can keep their secrets, but its nice when that door is open.Which brings us to this episode's guests- The Boxmasters. The Boxmasters is made up of Bill Bob Thornton and JD Andrews. Thornton and Andrews in 2007 when Thornton brought in Andrews as a sound engineer for his 2007 record "Beautiful Door".  The two found that the had similar approaches and views of music and started playing together somewhat regularly. After some time, the two began recording and eventually created their band "The Boxmasters" the name comes from southern slang referring to a hotshot with echoes of Porter Wagoners "The Wagonmasters" which Thornton had previously played in for a time. Since 2007, the group has toured extensively with the likes of Willie Nelson and Ray Price, taking a break between 2010-2015 where they reconvened to make the record "Somewhere Down the Road". The released their latest album "Help Im Alive" in April of 2022 (when this interview was recorded).The Boxmasters do not shy away from their influences and what the build their sound on. Pulling from groups like The Beatles, The Rolling Stone, Mott and the Hoople- the duo works to echo the sounds the personally loved from the 60's and 70's- whilst also giving it a somewhat more southern edge with original lyrics.. all topped off with classic Bakersfield like production. And neither Andrews or Thornton will shy away from telling you as such.

Hey everyone, welcome back! My guest today is an incredible drummer who lives and works here in Nashville, Fred Eltringham. Fred one of my favourite drummers around town and has held down the drum chair in Sheryl Crow's band for the last 10 years or so. I've had a chance to see them in action a few times and they are really special. Fred keeps pretty busy here in Nashville when he's not out with Sheryl Crow - he's played on records or on stage with folks like Billy Gibbons, Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams, Willie Nelson, Darius Rucker, Kenney Chesney, Rodney Crowell, Kacey Musgraves - the dude has stacked up some serious credits! I love to talk to folks like this on the show - maybe slightly under the radar players who are super talented and just learn about their paths to get where they are now. Fred is pretty invisible on socila media, but he has a website where he posts a few things and his dates with Sheryl Crow are up there if you're ever able to go see him. That's at www.fredeltringhamdrummer.comListen 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

E7 Teen Favorites: 'Tender Mercies'

Woman in Revolt

"Tender Mercies" (1983) is about a former successful musician named Mac Sledge (Robert Duvall) who lost everything good in his life due to alcohol. When the film opens, he and a friend are staying in a motel, getting drunk and fighting while the proprietor, Rosa Lee (Tess Harper), and her young son, Carl (known as Sonny, played by Allan Hubbard), watch from their porch. When the friend skips out before paying the bill the next day, Mac offers to work for Rosa Lee in order to compensate for the room. She agrees, but tells him that he can't drink while he's working there. Thus begins Mac's slow streak of improving his life. He sticks with sobriety, marries Rosa Lee, and starts writing music again. It's the kind of movie that's not really plot-driven … more slice of life, at arm's length, character study about Mac's quiet redemption. Other highlights are Betty Buckley, who plays Mac's successful country star ex-wife, Dixie, and Ellen Barkin as Mac's estranged teen daughter, Sue Ann. The screenplay is written by Horton Foote, who won the best adapted screenplay Oscar for “To Kill a Mockingbird” in 1962. He also won a best original screenplay Oscar for “Tender Mercies” in 1983 and has a Pulitzer Prize for drama for his play, “The Young Man From Atlanta” and an Emmy for a TV adaptation of William Faulkner's “Old Man.” The director, Bruce Beresford (who we completely forgot to mention by name — sorry, Bruce), is probably best known for “Driving Miss Daisy” (1989), although my personal favorite film of his is “Double Jeopardy” (1999). Here are some things we mentioned during the episode and/or that we think you should check out: Norman K. Denzin's article in The Sociological Quarterly that provides a feminist close-reading of the film. Unfortunately, you need access to JSTOR to read it, but if you email me (lindsay@womaninrevolt.com), I can send you a copy. 1991 Robert Duvall interview on "Later with Bob Costas" 2002 Horton Foote interview at the Austin Film Festival Tess Harper presenting an award to Bruce Beresford at the 2010 Woodstock Film Festival Some interesting trivia: Duvall's only Oscar is for this film. He had been nominated for the following films (but did not win): “The Godfather” (1972), “Apocalypse Now” (1979), “The Great Santini” (1979), “The Apostle” (1997), “A Civil Action” (1998), and “The Judge” (2014). Duvall's contract stipulated that all of the songs had to be sung by him. “Over You,” the song Dixie performs at the Opry, was also nominated for an Oscar. Duvall wrote two of Mac's songs, "Fool's Waltz" and "I've Decided to Leave Here Forever.” Others were country classics and not written for the film. Universal Studio lost faith in the film after it performed poorly at test screenings. They also sort of ignored Willie Nelson's offers to promote the film. David Lynch was a contender for director at one point. Can you imagine this film with him at the helm? Actually, it probably would have been like “The Straight Story" (1999). The film was selected to screen in competition for the prestigious Palme d'Or (Golden Palm) Award at the Cannes Film Festival in 1983. Robert Duvall made his official cinema movie debut as Arthur "Boo" Radley in “To Kill a Mockingbird” (1962), whose screenplay was written by Horton Foote. Horton Foote and Duvall worked together on five projects: “TKAM,” William Faulkner's “Tomorrow” (1972), “Tender Mercies,” “The Midnight Caller” (play, 1958 debut), and “The Chase” (1966, based on his 1956 novel). Tess Harper and Bruce Beresford worked together on three films: “Tender Mercies,” “Crime of the Heart” (1986), and “Alibi” (1989).  Jeannine Oppewall was hired as art director. Beresford praised her as "absolutely brilliant," especially for her attention to very small details, "going from the curtains to the color of the quilts on the floors." It was Oppewall who named the motel Mariposa, Spanish for "butterfly," which symbolizes the spiritual resurrection Mac Sledge would experience there. Oppewall has four academy award nominations for best art direction:  "Seabiscuit" (2003), "LA Confidential" (1997), "Pleasantville" (1998), and "The Good Shepherd" (2006).

Co-starring Tuesday Weld, Willie Nelson and Robert Prosky, the film also features the big screen debuts of Dennis Farina, William Petersen and James Belushi. Mann brought in real-life professional thieves to consult on the film, which was co-produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and features a synth-heavy soundtrack by German electronica group Tangerine Dream. Playing a jewel thief and safecracker, James Caan often said that, next to The Godfather, this was the movie of which he was proudest.

Two-Time NY Times Bestselling Author From her own remarkable experiences, Janet created the profoundly impactful Passion Test process. This simple, yet effective process has transformed thousands of lives all over the world and is the basis of the NY Times bestseller she co-authored with Chris Attwood, The Passion Test: The Effortless Path to Discovering Your Life Purpose &Shine Your Light: Powerful Practices for an Extraordinary Life by Janet Bray Attwood and Marci Shimoff .Janet is a living example of what it means to live a passionate, fully engaged life. A celebrated transformational leader, Janet has shared the stage with people like His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Sir Richard Branson, Nobel Prize winner, F.W. deKlerk, Stephen Covey, Jack Canfield, and many others. She is also known as one of the top marketers in America. In 2000, Mark Victor Hansen and Robert G. Allen paid for 40 of the top marketing experts in the country to come to Newport Beach, CA to consult with them on marketing their book, The One Minute Millionaire. Janet was one of the very first they invited. As a result of that meeting, Robert G. Allen and Mark Victor Hansen asked Janet to partner with them in their Enlightened Millionaire Program. Her personal stories of following her passions, of the transformations which people like Chicken Soup for the Soul author Jack Canfield have experienced with The Passion Test, and the practical, simple exercises she takes people through to discover their own passions are a few of the reasons she gets standing ovations wherever she presents. Janet has given hundreds of presentations and taken thousands of people through The Passion Test process, in the U.S., Canada, India, Nepal, and Europe. Janet is also the founder of The Passion Test for Business, The Passion Test for Coaches, The Passion Test for Kids and Teens, The Passion Test for Kids in lockdown, and The Reclaim Your Power program for the homeless. Janet is a golden connector. She has always had the gift of connecting with people, no matter what their status or position. From the influential and powerful, to the rich and famous, to lepers and AIDS patients, to the Saints of India, Nepal, the Philippines and elsewhere—to anyone who is seeking to live their destiny, Janet bonds with every single person, and the stories she shares are inspiring, mind-boggling, uplifting and very real. A co-founder of top online transformational magazine, Healthy Wealthy nWise, Janet has interviewed some of the most successful people in the world about the role of passion in living a fulfilling life. Her guests have included Stephen Covey, Denis Waitley, Robert Kiyosaki, Neale Donald Walsch, Paula Abdul, Director David Lynch, Richard Paul Evans, Barbara DeAngelis, marketing guru Jay Abraham, singer Willie Nelson, Byron Katie, Wayne Dyer, Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus, Tony Robbins, Rhonda Byrne and many others. These live teleconference interviews have attracted listeners from all parts of the globe. Edited versions of these interviews are made available to over 150,000 subscribers. Her Passion Test process has impacted people worldwide, and The Passion Test phenomenon has resulted in requests from schools to build a passion curriculum, from teachers, trainers and speakers to use the process, and from organizations like NASA to incorporate it in their staff development programs. It was as a result of taking The Passion Test with Janet that Jack Canfield recognized his passion to be part of a spiritual leaders' network and out of that came the Transformational Leadership Council. Janet and Chris are both founding members of that organization whose 100+ members serve over 10 million people in the self-development world. Janet Attwood makes magic happen. Her presentations hold audiences spellbound. Her programs attract people from all over the globe. Through her magnetic charisma she is touching the lives of millions of people around the world. janetattwood.com'© 2022 All Rights Reserved© 2022 BuildingAbundantSuccess!!Join Me on ~ iHeart Radio @ https://tinyurl.com/iHeartBASSpot Me on Spotify: https://tinyurl.com/yxuy23baAmazon Music ~ https://tinyurl.com/AmzBAS https://tinyurl.com/BASAud

Hello, my friend, James Fantastik on the Monetize Your Voice Podcast. Thank you so very much for joining us.  It is a privilege and a pleasure to be able to be with you and to share some thoughts that hopefully will be helpful. In your daily activity of this game called life. Now the last several podcasts, we were serious. We were talking about white noise.  it's the morning time when I'm cutting this. So sometimes my jaws don't work in the best manner that they ought to work. Y so anyhow, we were talking about white noise and. We spent three different podcasts looking at many different aspects of probably the largest intruder in what we call tall, T and L the art of listening. So if you haven't heard the three previous podcasts, I would. Highly suggest that you go back and listen to 'em they're short, and to the point, and we're gonna continue this, the art of comfort of communication is so crucial.  And that's our program tack the art of confident communication. It is.    I wish I  really could tell you from my heart of hearts, this amazing freedom that comes, the more that we hone our skills and all the other subcategories that go into building a confident communicator. So if you haven't heard those last three. Go back and check 'em out. And while we're talking about checking things out, if you go to mrfantastik.live that's mrfantastik.live, we will send you five free tips to up-leveling your communication skills. I suggest that you give yourself that gift. So moving on. As I had mentioned earlier here, we've been talking about white noise. So the day I thought we kinda lighten up a little bit there, buddy. Yeah. And we're gonna look at a thing called. Fantastic. Fascinating adventure. Everything that we do in life has to do with what is ours. Emotional mental spin on things. And today's topic of a fantastic, fascinating adventure viewing life. From that perspective. Now only a few weeks before I cut this, I was flying and of course, because I've had seven back operations. I need to stretch from time to time and I've always had a great relationship with the stewards they're now called  I don't know what they're called but anyhow      I always work with the folks that are in that particular business because they have a challenging job. And basically, I try to make everything fun and easy.  so I'm in the back cabin chatting with the ladies and I'm handing out my business cards.  And so the one steward who says to me, oh you are in the communication business, you have the monetize, your voice PO podcast. So how are you doing? And she wanted to know what was our listenership and our following. And I said we are trying. Break the DaVinci code of the internet marketing maze and her eyes got so big. They were like saucers. And she said, oh my, that sounds fascinating. And I about fell on my rear end and I thought to myself, wow, that's interesting. And I said to her right away  I'd been looking at it through the lenses of its. Frustrating. However, I like your lens of fascinating a lot better. So I communicated this with my staff and  I said let's just and we all started laughing and yeah. Yeah. Let's look at this as fascinating. Adventure. And then, of course, I like to add our other very descriptive adjective. Fantastic.  I like to consider myself Mr. Fantastic. Fantastic dot go. So the point I'm trying to make here, folks are. How do we position where we're going every moment of every day. If we do choose to look at life from a positive perspective.     Whoa. It becomes absolutely. Fantastic and fate.  So think about that. Okay. Whatever you're doing, whatever the challenge is  I'm on the road again, as the great song by Willie Nelson goes and  I'm in, I'm actually in the human maintenance business that is. Maintaining this vehicle called my body and the longer I go, and of course the more wear and tear there is with the vehicle, the more necessary for maintenance or as I like to call it maintenance so anyhow while we do this and the further we get along, down the line, really the more. Essential. It becomes for us to look at things lightheartedly. The earlier in life that we can get into the habit of viewing things in a lighthearted, fun, and easy manner, the greater and more adventurous fund we will be. On this journey called life. So I would like to highly encourage you to give serious consideration to having your viewpoint shift. If it isn't already there to a fantastic, fascinating adventure, or you can put the journey in there, whatever floats your boat, doesn't it make you feel good to think? Fantastic. Fascinating adventure slash journey. Now I am not asking you to put on rose-colored glasses. I'm not asking or suggesting that you should be Pollyanna in the scriptures. It says you will have trouble in this world, but do not fear for, I have overcome the world. So I'm not asking you to say, oh, you can be so fantastic. You adventure.  I have a pretty good idea of what you might be going through and I'm not diminishing. What's that word diminishing is what I think I was trying to say. I'm not diminishing whatever your current opportunity to grow might be. That's a whole other subject that we'll talk about probably in the next podcast. And that is an opportunity to grow, but anyhow, wherever we are with whatever our current challenges might be, we still can choose to look at it. Optimistically. We can still choose to. I'm going to look at this special opportunity to grow from the viewpoint of a fantastic, fascinating adventure. Trust me, my dear friends. I have been at this throughout the journey, particularly over the last. Five six years of my life on this journey. Becoming a certified life coach and then switching gears in the middle of the stream, because at one of the marketing conferences, a very intelligent lady said to me, Mr. Fantastic, you're missing the whole aspect of what you should be doing. And that is you should be teaching about communicating.  and my eyeballs got big as saucers. And so I knew she was correct. And so I switched gears and. It's becoming more fantastic every day because I have chosen to switch my lenses from frustrating to fascinating. I hope you'll change your perspective that you'll consider doing that. Does it take effort? Yes. Everything in life takes effort even doing. Such as resting and meditating, et cetera, et cetera, everything takes effort. Everything takes energy.

Magnús Þór Jónsson, formaður Kennarasambands Íslands, segir mikilvægt að gripið sé til samræmdra aðgerða í skólakerfinu vegna breytinga á samsetningu nemendahópsins. Til að mynda er von á nokkur hundruð nýjum nemendum í haust frá Úkraínu. Aldrei hafa verið jafn mörg börn í íslenskum grunnskólum og síðasta vetur. Á sama tíma hefur börnum með erlendan bakgrunn fjölgað en börnum með íslenskan bakgrunn fækkað. Þetta hefur ekki gerst á einni nóttu heldur er þetta hægfara þróun. Arthúr Björgvin Bollason fór yfir umræðuna í Þýskalandi um hámarkshraða á hraðbrautum landsins. Nú vill rúmlega helmingur landsmanna að settur verði hámarkshraði þar. Það eru umhverfismálin sem fólk hefur í huga vegna þess fjölda bifreiða sem enn ganga fyrir jarðefnaeldsneyti. Orkumálin eru mál málanna þar sem Rússar hafa dregið enn frekar úr gasflutningum til Evrópu og útlit fyrir að það verði kaldara í híbýlum fólks í vetur en vanalega. Í Berlínarspjalli var líka rætt um útgáfu á Íslendingasögunum á þýsku. Helgi Ólafsson, stórmeistari í skák, fór yfir skákirnar í einvígi aldarinnar fyrir fimmtíu árum þegar Fischer og Spasský tókust á um heimsmeistaratitilinn í skák í Laugardalshöllinni. Helgi segir að þetta hafi verið stærsta skákeinvígi sögunnar; í miðju kaldastríðinu tókust á skákmenn frá Bandaríkjunum og Sovétríkjunum í Reykjavík.

Þóroddur Bjarnason, prófessor við Háskóla Íslands og rannsóknarprófessor í byggðafræði við Háskólann á Akureyri, hefur skilað inn umsögn við frumvarp Sigurðar Inga Jóhannssonar innviðaráðherra um heimild til að stofna opinbert hlutafélag um uppbyggingu og rekstur í samgönguinnviða. Þar er meðal annars er rætt um að fjármagna jarðgangagerð með veggjöldum í öllum jarðgöngum landsins. Ekki eru allir á eitt sáttir við þessar hugmyndir ráðherrans. Þóroddur bendir á kostnaðinn sem þessu fylgir fyrir íbúa Akraness sem þegar hafa greitt veggjöld um Hvalfjarðargöng í mörg ár eða allt þar til greitt hafði verið fyrir göngin að fullu og veggjaldið afnumið. Martin Ingi Sigurðsson yfirlæknir í svæfingar- og gjörgæslulækningum á Landspítalanum, fer á hverju ári til Rúanda ásamt alþjóðlegu teymi heilbrigðisstarfsmanna að gera opnar hjartaskurðaðgerðir hjá ungum sjúklingum með hjartalokuskemmdir eftir streptókokkasýkingu. Í Rúanda er starfandi einn hjartaskurðlæknir en það var hjartateymið, Heart Team, sem kostaði hann til náms í Eþíópíu. Ekki var hægt að gera neinar slíkar aðgerðir í Rúanda á meðan Covdid-19 geisaði. Íbúar Rúanda eru 14 milljónir og Íslands tæplega 400 þúsund. Hér á landi eru tveir hjartaskurðlæknar. Martin Ingi segir margt ólíkt í heilbrigðiskerfum ríkjanna tveggja en um leið eigi þau ýmislegt sameiginlegt. Þórdís Sif Sigurðardóttir hefur verið ráðin sveitarstjóri Vesturbyggðar og tekur hún við starfinu 1. september. Þórdís Sif var áður bæjarstjóri í Borgarbyggð og bæjarritari og staðgengill bæjarstjóra Ísafjarðarbæjar í sjö ár. Ekkert atvinnuleysi er í Vesturbyggð og þörf fyrir að þar sé byggt nýtt íbúðarhúsnæði og það vantar leikskóla á Patreksfirði. Menningarlífið blómstrar í Vesturbyggð og Þórdís er spennt fyrir flutningnum vestur á firði. Eitt af því sem íbúar Vesturbyggðar vilja er að jarðgöng verði gerð milli Bíldudals og Tálknafjarðar annars vegar og Tálknafjarðar og Patreksfjarðar hins vegar.

Everybody's Mark Pattison, I'm back again with another great episode of finding your summit, all about people overcoming adversity and finding their way. Can't wait to jump into today's guest, who certainly fits that bill. But before we do, I want to direct your attention to my website, www dot mark pattison nfl dot com, and I've got my film Emmy Award Winning Best Picture searching for the summit.

Best Picture Emmy. I've got the hardware comments, so I'm excited about that. Number two is I've done over two and fifty episodes, uh, going on out two or three years, and I've got so many amazing people doing incredible things and it always inspires me to talk to these people, like we're gonna talk to today, just what they're doing, how they've gone about life and their success and we all need that. I'm not the or you're not the only one I need it to to Jack me up and keep me going up and down these mountains. And finally, we continue to raise money for a millions everest all proceeds go to higher ground. It's all about empowering others and that's what we aim to do. Um, we we show the film, we've done these campaigns with Amelia, so on, so forth. Uh. And I think we have something coming either to the south down of Mississippi, which I hope Matt would be included with. That's coming on just a minute. Uh, and in southern California with Um, some pretty cool people. So tune into that, um all, if you do go on to that length. Philanthropy, millions Everest of all proceeds go directly to higher ground. It doesn't come to me in anyway. So on that note, let's get into today's awesome guest. His Name Matt Warren. Matt, I've met you two years ago down in the Great State of Mississippi, the little town of Greenville, at a wonderful common mutual friends, Steve Azar. He's another Delta Blues Singer, in your case singer Songwriter. I hope I got that right, Matt. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me. Brother. I'm I'm excited to be on here and it's a real honor. Thanks for asking. Well, listen, you know, let's let's just rewind this, because we're gonna talk about your life. We're gonna talk about dreams, we're gonna talk about failures. You know, we talked about the name of the show is finding your summit. There's peaks, the valleys. Um, you've been in valleys. You've been in peaks. I've been in a whole probably more valleys than you've been, and I've been on a couple of peaks and it's fun when you're standing on the top. But you know, to develop that character over time you have to go through some stuff. Right. That builds that character, that broils that grit, that builds those other things that you ultimately are made up. But I want to go back just two years now and and I want to tell you my experience, Um, for the audience. So there's a there's a common friend of of Matt and mind. His name is Steve Azar. He's a Delta Country Blues he's had a number of hits. He's a singer, he's a songwriter, just like our guest today. Um. But he he throws a a Gulf event, a fundraiser, and then we're fortunate, the people that come down to be able to listen to these these amazing voices that Steve. He calls friends up on stage on a Friday night and I was sitting back with my girl dares, and I was I was this Guy, man Warren, was introduced. He came up and belt it up and we're looking each other like, oh my God, this guy sings like a flippant angel, I mean so talented. And afterwards I said something, you know, and we didn't really talk too much after that. And this last year, a couple of months ago, we got to talk a lot more. And again you got up and you sang a beautiful song and and so, I mean again, where did this love? When did you figure out that when you opened your mouth, you have this magic that could actually come out and it's I mean, I'd sounded pretty sweet. Gosh, that's an interesting question. Um, I've kind of got a funny story, uh, about that because, Um, I wasn't really sure, Um, that I had a beautiful voice, and the reason being, Um, you know, as a kid I was a product of what my parents listened to. I can remember being, you know, sitting in front of a record player, flipping records, you know, from one side to the next, while my mom was in the kitchen or doing whatever she was doing. And that was kind of my babysitter, was the record player. Um. And so from a very young age I loved music and I would lock myself in my room as I got older, and I had a whiffleball bat and I'd stand in there and, you know, Air Guitar and I'd sing it. I always thought that I had, well, I don't know if I thought I had a good voice, but I enjoyed singing. I thought that I could sing pretty much to anything. And Uh, and then in the what not? Okay, glad you're gonna say that. The seventh in the seventh grade, I tried out for the church choir and I was the only kid that didn't make it. So I was devastated, you know, because well, a you know, everybody should make the church choir. I mean, you know, we're all just, you know, praise in Jesus. But when they you know, I was I thought to myself, maybe maybe I'm not a good singer. You know, if I'm the only kid that didn't make the choir. So, Um, I was a little confused because I knew that I enjoyed singing and I thought that I was a pretty good singer. Um. And then it wasn't until the tenth grade that I had the courage to try out again for a for chorus in high school, and it was basically because my but these all my buddies I played football with. You had to have an elective and the reasoning for uh doing chorus was on my on. My budd said, they're all the cute girls were in there and it was a lot of fun. So I got the courage I have to to try out and I think I tried out with George all in my mind, by Ray Charles and my chorus teacher, Mr James Story. He uh, he just he said, where have you been? And so that was at that point that I thought, okay, well, maybe I was right, maybe I can't sing, and then he gave me a solo. Um, that Christmas we had a Christmas show at my high school, at Gallas in high school, and he let me Sing Jingle Bell Rock and that was the first time I'd ever sing in front of a group of people and I actually didn't even tell my mom and dad that I was going to be singing until the night before and I remember telling my dad I said, I think you guys should come to the Christmas program tomorrow and I I've got a solo and uh, my dad just looked at me and solo at what, you know, and I'm single Bell Rock. And so that was the first time that was it wasn't until then really that that I thought that I had a decent voice and I guess the approval of the crowd after the cheers. You know, that that kind of was what hooked me. You know, I was like you. I was, um, an athlete, a four spoor athlete my whole life, you know, a team, team player, and it went until I stood up on that stage by myself and sang a song that I was I was hooked. Yeah, I can tell you that really quickly that in high school, my senior year, after football season, UM, myself and some other football guys tried out for as a cast for the musical Ballyga doone and I was going to be in the village and I just singing, just dish. I had to sing in front of a hundred people and I was terrified. I knew that was not my place, but that was that was my story. So I want to mix this in. So now now, you you're, you're, you're, you're, you're, you get up on stage, you're singing jingle bow rock, you know, you know, you finally like Hey, maybe I can do this. You know, as you're you've got a little confidence boost, you know, going and and then and then. I know we're kind of fast foreign forwarding at the clock a bit, but over the arc of time, you know, you find your place and you start writing songs. So where does the connection come from? You're, you're okay, I got a voice. Now I actually, rather than singing jingle bow rock and all these other, you know, songs that that you get up it's like Karaoke night, but you're actually you're gonna screate your own like, where the where did that inspiration come from? Um, so, I knew that I wanted to be my ultimate dream is to be the lead singer in a band. I mean that. That has never changed. Um. And so I had a band. I had a cover band, and we were basically signed to play like frat houses and bars in the SEC at Alabama or L S U or Tennessee. and Um, the band broke up and a couple of the guys wanted to go do a thing where they were playing original music. And I realized pretty fast that if I wanted to continue chasing my dream of being a lead singer in a band, I was gonna have to have some songs of my own, because I think my thought process back then was, and it's still this way. Um, no great musician is wanna gonna want to just play covers, so you're gonna have to have your own songs, Um, and that I started writing songs out of necessity because I needed a band, Um, and that's really what put me on the path to writing songs. And and at the time, you know, I still don't know how to read or write music. I just I know what chords I'm playing and I can hear them. I was just imitating Van Morrison and and and Willie Nelson, you know, generally speaking, because I would listen to some of their records and I how I started writing songs was I would just copy the chord structure from like Willie Nelson Song or a van Morrison Song, something pretty simple. You know, Tom Petty Song. I would copy those chords and the structure and the rhythm and then I would learn how to put my own words and my own Melly over top of those chords and that chord structure and that rhythm, and then I would change the rhythm up a little bit. And so I would, you know, create my own my own my own songs, and I realized that it was okay to do that because they had copied, you know, petty and and Willie Nelson and and you know, Van Morrison. They were just copying people that they loved. I mean there's only x amount of chords so and there's only, you know, x amount of subjects to to sing about and to to write about, and so I thought, well, if they can do it, so can i. and that's really how I started writing songs. Was Just Um, copying Um, the artist that I was I was into. Yeah, it's really interesting. Just sidebar to them and we're gonna give jump right back onto it. Um, I was. I was been been intrigued about some of these lawsuits are going out of saying trying to there's a lawyer that's out there in particular trying to I can't remember who the artist is, but saying that the so and so stole songs right, and if you listen to it, I guess you could like draw some comparisons in there by the end of the day. I don't know how you exactly do that, just because you said there's an infinite which is x amount of chords and those chords have to follow some structure and and there's eighty million trillion songs that are out there and so trying to create a new songs. So I mean you could potentially make an argument every single time somebody writes a song that they're infringing on somebody. Absolutely. I mean it's it's like it's not exactly like this, but to compare it to something that you are very familiar with, you know, each receiver has his own way of running a route, but it's still rout at the end of the day. You know what I mean? Like I mean we're still you're still talking about three chords. In the truth, you're still Um, there's only so many instruments you can use, there's only so many you know, Um, like I said before, only so many subjects. So it is getting strange and I think that the reason we're seeing more lawsuits, or one of the reasons, Um, is because the money streams and the revenue is drying up because of streaming. Um. It's not like it was in the nineties or or even the early two thousand's or previous to when, if you you know, when you and I were growing up, if you wanted to listen to music, you either had to turn on the radio or the only way you could get it was to purchase, you know, a single or a tape or a cassette or or an LP or a eight track. Eight track for you guys, Hey, I'm lone enough to I had an eight track tape player in my nineteen eight Grand Marquis. That was my own. But I think that. I think that because the money revenues are starting to dry up, people are starting to get suit happy and I actually heard the other day that, you know, a lot of songwriters and artists are selling their catalog I know that Bob Dylan just sold his for three plus million Um. But I heard that some of these companies that are buying catalogs are actually hiring lawyers to go through the catalogs and see which songs sound like other songs and find out who wrote them first and go get those guys. Get those guys and that that's pretty scary, I know well. And listen, I don't want to go down that path. I want to jump back onto you, but it's just like when you said that. Okay, so, okay. So you're in high school jingle bow rock. You're young here. Now you start a band, you realize that the PA of going forward is write your own songs. So you can figure that out. You start to put a few things down and now you go on and you've had a number of hits. Now I don't think you've had hits in terms of you seeing those songs. One of the models which I've I've been told, is like, like, you want to be the writer of the song. It doesn't matter really who's singing. If you sing it, it's great. Um, it'd be great for your career, but you just want to, you know, write songs and have Tim mcgrawan and these other guys pick them up and that's where you can make some serious down. And that has happened to you. Now, how many times? Um, I have only had three singles. Um, I had one single that was by a guy named Robert Randolph in the family band and Darius Rutgers sang it. That record was up for Um for a grammy Um in the Blues Category. We did not win. Still in honor to have a song that was the nomination Um. The other two singles that I've had have been with Gary Allen. The first one was called learning how to bend. It went to number ten and then the second one was called every storm runs out of rain and that went to number one and it was up for a C M for Song of the year. It was. It's it's by far my biggest song I've ever had. Um definitely the one that paid the most. I've had a couple other you know, now the format is Um. People are releasing songs Um and not even making records. So I actually have a song that just came out last week by a guy named Jake who who won the voice. He was the season seventeen winner, and the song is called had it to lose, and I wrote that with Jake and my friend Matt Nolan. But those you know. I've the the other three really the Gary Allen stuff is the biggest payouts that I've had because he's a major label, within the within the country, within the Yes, yeah, well, you're a tendency boy, right. Oh, yeah, yeah, so you know. Look, you know how many hits I've had. Zero Um and so do you know? You have to be at the plate to be in the game, right. We always say this, and that's what so much when you start talking about fear of jumping into that of like my fear of getting over the stated scene in front of people to mean massive. And so that was not my path. You know, that has been your path, and I think at the end of the day, you have to be committed to the end goal, because your next great song could be tomorrow, it could be today. Yes, right, you just don't know when that thing is gonna come. But if you don't get up the bad the plate, you keep swinging, you'll never know unless you try absolutely and I mean, dude, I'm scared every day. I mean I you know, I get nervous every time I perform. I figured that if I the day and I'm not nervous, that I don't care anymore. Uh, I get you know, if I if I wanted to succumb to the worries of of what ifs in life, I mean sometimes I think I'm never gonna write another song. You know. Sometimes I think that, Um, that I might have already written my greatest song and it may never get cut. I mean, who knows, but you have to show up and actually I'm in this phase right now. Um. I A big part of my path that that you know about is I went to Rehab three and a half years ago and got sober. And so this is my twentieth year, Um, in the business writing on a publishing you know, writing professionally. And so for seventeen or sixteen and a half of those years, Um, I was, you know, I was a user, you know, pot, alcohol, prescription drugs, recreational drugs, and there were many writing appointments. Are Many Times that I sat down to write in the past in those sixteen and a half years where I wasn't on some substance. So does that? Can I can? I can I ask you this question. Does that? Because you know, you go back to like Jimi Hendrix and you know when he's lighting his guitar on fire, when he's on LSD and does it? Does it make you, or the Beatles, when they're in their creative did you feel like like where you're at now, with full clarity, versus where you were in some altered state? I don't know what what it was, but do you feel like that in some way gives you more creativity when you're like your your mind is altered like that? or or what's your opinion? Um, you know, I I think for each person it's going to be different. I do think that there is Um, you know, you are in some altered state of mind, there is a window. You know, for me, I think the reason I liked to smoke pot when I would write was there is like this window, a ten minute window of what I thought was brilliance or whatever. But you had, I had to have a a recorder with me because I'd forget it, you know. But Um, I also think that that potentially is just a big lie. I mean, you know, for years I was addicted um two different substances and I I used to think that, well, these helped me to create, these helped me to focus and help me to write. And you know, my my, the drug that that I had the biggest issue with was adderall, and it's a it's doctor prescribed and they do give it to patients, you know, for Um, attention attention deficit disorder and Um, you know, that drug does help you to concentrate on whatever it is you're doing, but if what you're doing is folding socks, then you'll be concentrating on that. So you know, for me, I started to do other things and I I wasn't focused on writing music. But back to answer your question, I I think that for some people there is this fairytale world or this super creative place that they are able to go when they get high. But you can go there sober and you can go um too, other new places, other places that you can't go to when you are high. Now, if I'm being honest, I'm still figuring out who this guy is as a sober artist and a sober writer, because when I was is an addiction, I was such a mess that I wrote from that place and so I was always struggling, I was always emotionally, uh m, just broken, and it was very easy for me to write from that perspective. Now that I'm healthy and I'm leaning into my higher power and leaning on God and Jesus, you know that I can't really talk about my path without mentioning my spirituality in my relationship with the Lord. So now that I'm healthy and I have that that I'm that I'm leaning into and that I'm I'm following, I'm happy and I'm healthy, and so I'm still learning how to write from that perspective. Um, I think you know. You know, you know. The whole thing with that matter is us. My opinion is that and this is, you know, like I wanted to start off by let's talk about your peaks. Right, we'll get back to your peak, but I wanted to start about your peaks. You know, you start to find success and singing and people like teams, you know what was coming out of your mouth and started to saying. So you get a bunch of peak and then you fell into this common path, I wouldn't say of just artists, but certainly you're kind of in that space. You're playing laden bars and everybody's drinking, having a good time, and so you're in you're doing all that and then, like many Um you know, you fall into a valley. So now you're coming back and and to me, when I've been, I've even been in my valleys have not been related to drugs or alcohol or anything. But just you know, we all go through and struggle, whatever that might be. And like if you're focused on what your intention is going to be, if you're focused on you know, there's blue sky ahead, even though you don't even know what that blue sky ahead, if you're if you're if you're focused on whatever you do. I've had a couple of wins Um in my life doing different things, but that's just that's over, right. What's ahead? What? What? What? What am I gonna do next? You know, how can I like propel myself in that direction? And that gives me hope about other things. And I would like to think, like what I'm hearing from you is kind of the same thing, where you finally found peace within yourself. You know, you don't have to, you know, be self combustible to be great, right, and and and that's your blue sky, you know, whatever that might be, of trying to find the next best song. You know, I think you and I should write a song called the summit song, right, but it's, you know, like the people that you meet and the influences that you have. But again we goes back to that first thing about, you know, stepping up the plate and swine in the Bat. You gotta be at the plate. Yes, that's so. That's what I was I was saying all that to get to this. Even though, even though I don't feel as creative as I it was and it doesn't have anything to do with the drugs and alcohol. It also has a lot to do with I've been doing this for twenty years and you know, you're only as good as the subject that you have to sing about or right about. And so if you are a paid professional songwriter and you go Monday through Friday and you write, you know, for a publishing company, I mean you can get I mean, burnout is a real thing. I mean, you know, and so you know that. And so I also think that I'm just going through this this period right now where, Um, I'm just living, I'm enjoying who I am today in my sobriety and even though here, here's here's the point, even though I don't feel like showing up some days because I just I want to do something else, I'm still showing up and I'm still working and I'm very fortunate that I have friends and Co writers I've been working with for a long time who know what I'm going through and they're more than happy to still get together and and a lot of times I'm getting songs that I would have never guessed that I you know, that we'd beginning because they weren't my you know, the title or the the idea wasn't mine, but I'm showing up. That's that's that's the point I wanted to make. And you're right. You can't be in the game without stepping up to the plate, and that's what I had this conversation, I think it was yesterday, with my my buddy Jim Moore, who is now the head coach at the University of Connecticut. Has Been a long time in the NFL head coach, and you know, what we were talking about is, and this is related only in to my own situation, but you know that. And there's no cameras, there's no film crew, there's no you know, people with money wait now like every single day, every single morning. You know the difference, I'm just telling you, between some of the things I've done others. It is consistency with daily discipline, consistency with daily discipline, consistency with and it does seem anonymous, but I know that puts me in the best position to win. Yes, I sold lately, since March I have gotten back into the gym and I started running and you know, like I said, I was a fourth sport athlete in high school. I also used to teach health and wellness and K through twelve P um and I love sports. I'm an athlete and that that part of my life has been gone for years. And so in March I started working out and running and there were days I did not want to do it and I just started showing up. I ran my first five K on Memorial Day. I never thought I would ever be the kind of guy that could, that could run five K and I end up finishing eight in my age group and I finished one eleven out of four hundred and eighty three runners and was really I I was really proud of myself because I could have quit working out or I could have stopped running. When I thought that, Hey, I feel I'm looking in the mirror, I see improvement. I'm just gonna take today off. It's the mundane. It's the consistency, like you just spoke of, Um and the discipline that has helped me to get to where I'm at now with my exercise skulls, and that will also bleed over into other aspects of my life. The discipline, Um, in the consistency. Yeah, one of the things you're gonna find too, is is, uh, you know, not only is the mental health, because you're out doing something positive right, it's activating all the endorphins in your body, but there's also a lot of creativity that go through. So when you're one of those those that we that five kids that you're talking about, that's going to three miles and as you're running those miles, you're not just thinking about Oh my feeedom floor, you know you're you're you're also other things come in relationships and maybe music ideas or I should have called this guy, or what's going on with DVS are you know? There's there's a million and one things that go on in your brand that helped activate that, that retap into that creativity. Absolutely so. So, listen, Um, what I love to do and you pick it, Um, but you you've got a beautiful song that went to number one. Every storm runs out of rain. By the way, I'm from Seattle, so I know all about rain, or or this this new song that you just cranked out recently that you're really proud of. You pick, just give us a little sampler. Well, I uh, I'll play you a song that. Um, it's not that new song, but it's it's on my new record that's coming out and it's also on the Gary Allen record that just came out. We're not sure if it's going to be a single or not. We'll see, but it's called the hard way. Well, I was looking for my actually on the interstate Si I'm but the wind winning. We Dance. I took a wrong right turn about a half of my back. My directions all spun around through the sideways. Ray and the love and the shame. I watched the sunlight disappeared in the sun so black. He said you're never gonna make it back. Do you do some hard time? I'm out here. Well, God gave me the ring. Do you watch anyway, my pain and to learn from bad mistakes. Love me the horrid way. I love that man. That's beautiful. That was beauty. What what is that song about? Uh, that song. It's about sometimes in life, Um, the best lessons are learned through hardship and adversity, the hard way. Um, at least. You know, at least for me, that's been when I've learned the most just when I didn't want to. Um, you know I have. I've had a lot of people on the show again finding your summing. Everybody find it's going through adversity and finally way out right and and Um. And this one lady I had about a hundred episode. It's said this correctly, and this is after her son had been who twenty, was like three at the time. I've been stoned to death down in Somalia. Okay, so I think of the pain of a mother going through something like that. And she said there's no way around it. You have to go through it and in it. And I've been in the same spot. I've been in the spot many times and and you want that to go and you like doing everything Canada like shove that rock out of the way and get it. But sometimes it takes ten years, sometimes it takes five years. You know there was no but you look back on those times and you're saying that was the best thing that I could have ever happened to me, even though it sucked. Right, but I learned so many great lessons and I was humbled and people, you know, this person and that person came to my rescue and we're there and maybe that, like like the Beautiful Song You just sang, gave me inspiration to put me in a place for him today. Absolutely. I mean, my it a really long story, but the things that led me to the point to where I knew I needed to go to Rehab, that whole process was just completely life shattering to me and my and my and my view and my eyes. Um, and had I not gone, you know, gone through that, Um, I'd still probably be out using, you know, and just as lost as I could possibly be. But Um, I really had to go through the fire to get to where I'm at now and I would not ever take that back. I mean I would. I would never go back to my old self and I'm so grateful for the hardships that I had to endure and overcome. Well, you become a stand up guy, you become a man of integrity. You see what you do, when you do what you say, and and you know other people around you. They noticed that and then they noticed that shift and that's a big deal. It's a to me, it's a big deal and and and hopefully to you it's a big deal. I think it is a big deal. And you know your your life's journey. You know, every single day it's just a new thing. I mean, you know, I mean I we talked about the very, very beginning. I talked about, you know, this emmy that I just went for the best picture. You know, I've never started off climbing mountain. I climbed a mountain because I was in pain and suffering and I just had to go through my journey and it's just like that's that's what, that's. That was my Rehab Center, right to get up. And then these big gas mountains and you know, like ten years later I'm standing on the stage in front of pop costs and all these other people winning. You know, like where would that? I mean, it's so impossible that, like, I mean I don't know to say about it's so impositive, like there was no intention for that ever to happen. I didn't do it, you know, I just was there. You know the reasons for it. And so again, I think if you're authentic to your off on what you're trying to get through and where you're trying to go in the hill, and we're all on that path, we're constantly all healing in some different way. There can be magical things on the other side, and I think you're experiencing that right now and I'm just grateful and thankful that that you're willing to accept my friendship and and to beat on this podcast and and any time. What you should do right now is after you can need to strap on those tennis shoes and we're only four and a half hours awhile you're down in Salt Lake City, four and a half hours by car. But I think you start running, you could be here by like next Thursday. Oh Man, I'd have to hide right for that. Well, you can bring a couple of camelbacks. But listen, where can people find your your you and your beautiful music. So, uh, I've got a record. Um. It's under Matt Warren. The name of the record is self titled Um. But you if you wherever you listen to your music, whether it's on itunes or spotify or apple or however you listen to it, you can find my record on their at Warren, self titled. And also I have a band, my new band called good foot, and that record Um is about to come out. It's called the park city sessions and I'm really proud of this record Um, and it's it's me and four of my best buddies in the world. We came up here to park city, actually, to where I'm staying at right now and my friend Ben Anderson and Paige Anderson's house, and they have a studio here. We made a record and that record is all about, Um, my process from where I was in addiction to to where I am now and Um, and that record is gonna be available for people to download and to stream and listen, Um, hopefully by the end of the summer. That that it's it's done being mixed and the artwork is done. We're just in the process of getting it out there. So, Matt Warren Self titled and Um, Good Foot the Ark city sessions and also, uh, my very, very first record that I ever made. Um, they got me signed to my first publishing deal.

Our historic scorcher continues through this weekend, though a possible pattern change could spell at least moderate relief. Meanwhile, the Texas electric grid hit a new all-time demand record on Wednesday, crossing the 80,000 megawatt threshold for the first time ever - that's more demand than the states of California and New York on the same day, combined. The Austin City Council voted yesterday to limit the enforcement of state abortion laws by city agencies. The GRACE Act was passed unanimously. Fayette and Lampasas counties have been upgraded to High COVID risk, while Blanco and Mason drop from High To Medium, and Gillespie drops from High to Low risk. Travis and Williamson Counties remain at Medium and Hays remains at High risk. Local COVID-related hospitalizations have plateaued over the last week or so, with the count at 154 as of last night. Both the Austin Police Department and school districts across the Austin area are facing critical staffing shortages. Willie Nelson's operation at Luck has announced a fall show - "Lucktoberfest" - featuring Tanya Tucker, Los Lobos and more. Longstanding West Campus haunt Cain & Abel's is in the way of a new high-rise student housing project, but its actual demise could still be "years" away. Did we mention that gas prices are dropping? They're falling faster in Texas than in any other state. The "Banksyland" exhibit, showcasing the art of enigmatic urban artist Banksy, is running now at a secret Austin location - you have to buy a ticket to find out where to go.

If you like talking about ancient objects, this episode is for you. And, by "ancient objects," we don't mean things like typewriters, printed telephone books, and those AOL compact discs that used to show up in your mailbox every week.  We're talking about items that are really old.  Like, older than Keith Richards and Willie Nelson. And so, if ancient artifacts are your thing, join Garrick Bailey and Timothy Paul Jones on this exhilarating episode in which the dynamic duo discusses ancient texts, ancient abbreviations, ancient chains … and an ancient pelvis. Yes, an ancient pelvis. The episode begins with a battle between the chains of St. Paul and the pelvis of St. Nicholas—and by “St. Nicholas” we mean St. Nicholas of Myra, better known as “Santa Claus.” As it turns out, the pelvis of St. Nicholas is no longer connected to the rest of St. Nicholas, and one portion of his pelvis is thought by some to reside in a relic repository in the Chicago suburb of Morton Grove, Illinois. In Raiders of Church History, Timothy brings this intimate artifact into battle, certain that nothing could possibly defeat the pelvis of Santa Claus. (Also: “St. Nïck's Pëlvïs” would be a great name for a punk band that plays Christmas carols.) But then Garrick brings the chains that bound St. Paul, and the battle between your intrepid cohosts spins completely out of control.  And that's when Dr. Michael Kruger shows up to save the day. That's right: Michael Kruger, president of the Charlotte campus of the Reformed Theological Seminary and preeminent scholar of early Christianity, joins us to talk about the reliability of the copies and the canon of the New Testament. While considering the ancient text of the New Testament, Dr. Kruger deals with some of the claims made by Bart Ehrman in his best-selling books Forged: Writing in the Name of God—Why the Bible's Authors Are Not Who We Think They Are and Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why. Along the way, we also learn about an ancient pattern of abbreviations known as “nomina sacra” and the greatness of U2. ABOUT GUEST AND HOSTS Michael J. Kruger, Ph.D., serves as the President and Samuel C. Patterson Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the Charlotte campus of Reformed Theological Seminary. He earned his Ph.D. under one of the world's leading text-critical scholars, Larry W. Hurtado, at the University of Edinburgh. Dr. Kruger is one of the world's leading scholars of the origins of the New Testament and the development of the New Testament canon. He is the author of twelve books, most recently Christianity at the Crossroads: How the Second Century Shaped the Future of the Church (2018). Timothy Paul Jones, Ph.D., is C. Edwin Gheens Professor of Christian Ministry at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He teaches in the areas of family ministry and applied apologetics. He has authored or edited more than a dozen books, including Why Should I Trust the Bible?, The God Who Goes Before You, Perspectives on Family Ministry, and Christian History Made Easy.

Hannah Bethel is that rare artist who blurs lines between Americana, country, and rock. Her musical artistry is a reflection of who she is: a fierce, independent, wild, free and untamed spirit. After dedicating her life to music, Bethel has now risen to claim her place at the vanguard of independent singer/songwriters in Nashville's vibrant music scene. Her music captures the essence of her signature sound by blending elements of the many genres and styles that have influenced her writing and creative expression. Being fearless and unafraid to bare her deepest feelings in her songs is a reflection of her lifestyle, from solo backpacking in the deserts of Arizona and the mystical Joshua Tree, to hiking snow-peaked mountains in Alaska, Bethel lives her life to the fullest. She has experienced deep love, great loss and the healing power of personal growth and redemption – and she translates those life experiences to listeners though her songs, music videos and live performances.  Bethel was born in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin where as a child she studied dance and appeared in theater performances. She attended elementary school in nearby Oakfield, before moving to Houghton, Michigan where she went to middle and high school. She grew up listening to Country and Seventies Rock music. Drawing on influences from Tom Petty, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and Willie Nelson, among others, she spent her teenage years traveling the upper Midwest performing at fairs, bars, talent shows, coffee houses, shopping malls and Country Western shows.Bethel's career trajectory took a sharp upward turn following the release of her single and music video “Train” in October, 2018. A deeply personal song, “Train” was the beginning of a new chapter in her musical career, and one that saw her firmly taking the reins of her musical expression and how it is produced and presented. Bethel and “Train” were selected as a CMT Music “Artist Discovery” where Bethel and “Train” were featured across all CMT broadcast, online and social media platforms. 2022 has seen Bethel release three singles, “Bad News Baby,” “Godspeed, Los Angeles” and “Someone's Woman,” all from her highly anticipated new EP, ‘Until the Sun Comes Back Around.' The six-song project, released in late March, has received critical acclaim from media across America and Europe, and inclusion on Americana, folk, and country editorial playlists at major outlets across the digital spectrum. On the heels of her latest music, she took home the award for top “Female Vocalist of the Year” (all genres) at the 2022 Appalachian Arts and Entertainment Awards.https://www.instagram.com/hannahbethel/?hl=enhttps://www.facebook.com/hannah.bethel.artisthttps://twitter.com/hannahbethel?lang=enHost - Trey Mitchelltreymitchellphotography IGfeeding_the_senses_unsensored on IGtrey mitchell: facebook.com/profile.php?id=100074368084848For Sponsorship Information or Questions -  ftsunashville@gmail.comTheme Song - Damien HorneTake It From Me @damienhorne

RIP to James Caan, one of the more legendary American actors to emerge from the stellar crop of the 1970's. ☹ He has delivered many a strong performance in many strong movies including The Godfather where he played Sonny Corleone.   Over his impressive 50+ year acting career, his starring role as the eponymous thief in this crime drama is considered by many (himself included) to be his best overall performance.  He plays Frank, a seasoned safe-cracker living in Chicago looking for that one “last big score” and he just have found it…..working with local crime boss Leo (the late great Robert Prosky) which might present more issues than just pulling off a difficult caper.  All the while, Franks is also trying to build a relationship (and family) with Jesse (Tuesday Weld) while also trying to help his mentor Okla (Willie Nelson) who's still in prison – needless to say, Frank has a LOT going on and various complications ensue.  This was also the feature film directorial debut of Michael Mann who would eventually go on to direct several CLASSIC dramas including The Last of the Mohicans, Collateral, and…..one of my personal favorites, Heat. Host: Geoff Gershon Editors: Geoff and Ella GershonProducer: Marlene Gershonhttps://livingforthecinema.com/Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/Living-for-the-Cinema-Podcast-101167838847578Instagram:https://www.instagram.com/livingforthecinema/Letterboxd:https://letterboxd.com/Living4Cinema/

He is a songwriter and has played with the likes of Vince Gill, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and more.  Oh and he is the winner of 15 Grammy Awards!Barry is a husband and has one son, Marshall who is 15.  Barry is a 5th-generation farmer. He and his family own Bales Farm, where they raise grass-fed/grass-finished beef, pasture-raised chicken, pasture-raised pork, and free-range eggs.  Barry and his wife, Aliceson, were kind enough to have us out to the farm to record this episode. We sat outside on one of their porches and talked over a glass of bourbon on a beautiful East Tennessee day. Barry and Palmer talked about the importance of knowing when and what life lessons to teach our kids and the mediums to use when teaching, about his time as a child growing up on the farm, and the love and admiration he had for his grandfather, and the challenges of managing our own expectations of what we want for our kids. They talked a bit about the music industry and some of the changes Barry has seen during his time in it and spent the last part of the conversation talking about regenerative farming, why they practice it at Bales Farm, and why we need to see changes happening in our farming and food culture. A big thanks again to Barry for joining the podcast! In This Episode: Barry Bales on Instagram Aliceson Bales on Instagram Bales Farm Website | Instagram | YouTube | Cookbook Anthony Palmer on InstagramPalm Tree Pod Co.

This week on the Cadillac Jack – My Second Act podcast, Caddy has a surprise for Donna. Yes, it backfires on him. It's been a busy week in politics. Things can get heated – especially on social media. Donna has a thing or two to say about what's been going on and gives her advice on how to handle people and friends you don't agree with.  Bottom line: live and let live, folks. Also, you may have heard on the pod last week Donna mention the 2nd time Caddy was fired. You may have though, huh? When else did Caddy get fired? Well, there is a story. Technically, he did get fired, but not really. Caddy explains. And of course, as a top 100 podcast on the Apple Podcast Charts in the music & entertainments news categories (thank you listeners), we have some country music updates for our loyals. One of which reminds Caddy of New Years Eve 2004. You won't want to miss this one. We love our pod peeps. Have something you want to ask Caddy or a story to tell? Text or call 770-464-6024.
