Inviting and accessible show
What an awesome, inviting podcast. It’s great to get a peek into the lives of the artists we love so much. This is an honest show with people who are willing to share their stories. I’m blown away by how friendly Nashville’s artist community is. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, since they’re often showing up in each other’s Instagram posts and videos and cheering each other on. Thanks for a fun and informative show, Matt!
Curiosity kills boredom!
Love it! Pulled up oldest one I could find (leaving mediocre to start selling better experiences via peaches) and enjoyed it from start to finish! :)
