[S2 Ep2] Perspiration, not inspiration

Something about my conversation with ThiS Music’s Rusty Gaston makes me think about this clip from Pretty Woman. Not because this guy reminds me of Rusty, but because this guy is asking THE question. And even at a pretty young age, Rusty knew the answer. THiS Music is the publishing home of Ben Hayslip, Connie Harrington, […] Read more…

Podcast Season 2 with BMI’s Jody Williams

We called this episode “Money Honey.” We could have called it the “Initials Episode,” because we interviewed Jody Williams of BMI (Which is a P.R.O., but is not ASCAP or SESAC … confused? And we haven’t even started talking about copyrights yet). In this episode, Jody will do a little unpacking on how writers and publishers […] Read more…

Ep 8: Nicolle Galyon Part 1

This week on This Nashville Life: Nicolle Galyon. The badddddest instagram comment writer you’ve ever met, and yeah…..grammy nominated songwriter. We’re breaking Nicolle’s interview into two parts. The first (up now) is about the PROCESS. How Nicolle really came into her own as a writer. Her time on NBC’s The Voice. Her unfair advantage. And […] Read more…

The “Jazz” Episode

This week is a little departure for This Nashville Life. Since our co-producer Kevin is on his honeymoon (congratulations, Kev!) we decided to shake it up a bit. My close friend Nada Taha of the Bobby Bones Show actually turns the microphone on me! It’s a casual, candid and certainly unscripted conversation. We touch on […] Read more…

Episode 5: Get Hot Or Go Home

OK. You know that thing where you’re so close to something that it makes it hard to truly speak clearly about it….well that happened on this episode. This one is about imaging (all of the pieces that make up an artist’s public image, but it’s also about image itself. We speak with a woman I love […] Read more…

Podcast Episode 3 with Autumn House

We called this episode “How {Not} To Get A Record Deal” because I thought this was a fun way to come at the question of how exactly does someone get signed to a record deal? Autumn House Tallant, VP of A&R at UMG, is one of the wittiest people I know, and I just knew she […] Read more…

Podcast Episode 2 with Laura Veltz

In the second episode of the This Nashville Life podcast we sit down with powerhouse Laura Veltz to demystify the Nashville phenomenon of “co-writing” from the inside out. As I say in this episode’s intro, I wanted to sit down with Laura because she’s had hit songs (Drunk Last Night, Lonely Eyes…) but also because she writes […] Read more…

Because I believe when you share your story, it gives other people permission to share theirs. Because Nashville is absolutely exploding right now….as someone who grew up here […] Read more…
