Lukas Nelson and I spent the first ten minutes or so of our interview talking about surfing but eventually we do talk about music too.
Although singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow headlined the Greek the night before, she still managed to show up a few minutes early for our morning interview, which is one of many reasons we think she's super cool!
Producer/Singer/Songwriter/Guitar Shredder Butch Walker takes us through his days as a young buck in small town Georgia to the Sunset Strip in Hollywood to becoming one of the most sought after producers in the biz!!
Los Angeles based Americana singer/songwriter Rod Melancon moved to California from his home state of Louisiana to pursue acting, but luckily for us he picked up a guitar along the way and started writing songs! Ten years later he's just released his fantastic new record, "Southern Gothic."
The gangster of Americana himself, Justin Townes Earle, stops by the "Walking The Floor" studios for a chat about his new record, growing up in Nashville, running away into the hills of East Tennessee as a teenager, and more!
Austin-based honky-tonker Sunny Sweeney has written more songs than she'll probably ever be able to record, and she didn't even start playing music until after college! Among other things, we get deep into the glitz and glamour of touring in a van (and stopping at many a Starbucks along the way).
On the eve of her debut record release, Jade Jackson runs us through small town California life, growing up without the internet, being discovered by Mike Ness (Social D), and more!
