In Studio Guest: Will Hoge


Howdy Friends,

You’re in for a special treat on our show this weekend! Normally, we have Country Music Legends stop by the studio to talk to Jim Ed, but we thought it was high time for a Legend in the Making to sit down with our host. This week’s guest is Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Will Hoge.

This isn’t his first rodeo, and you may know Will already… as the man behind Eli Young Band‘s #1 hit, “Even If If Breaks Your Heart”… OR from his song “Strong”, which was featured in a Chevrolet Silverado Commercial.

Will Hoge just released his 9th studio album, “Small Town Dreams” this week (4/7) and we invited him to drop in and tell us about it, as well as play a few tracks from it, and a few from some of his favorite classic country artists.

You won’t want to miss Will Hoge and Jim Ed Brown swapping stories of Nashville’s ever changing landscape, and growing up ’round here. So tune in!

In Studio Guest: Leroy Van Dyke


Howdy Folks,

We’ve had a busy past few weeks, and it’s only getting better! Hope y’all are well out there, and get to enjoy this Easter weekend with your family and friends. We hope you’ll include us in your weekend plans too, because we’ve got a great show on tap for you!

A long time friend and country music legend, Leroy Van Dyke, stopped in the studio here in Nashville not too long ago, and he’s our special guest for the week! You probably know him from his hits like “Auctioneer” and “Walk On By”, or maybe you’re more familiar with his widely successful “Country Gold Tour”. No matter the reason, be sure to tune in this weekend to hear some of LVD’s hits, AND some of the stories behind them! We had such a great time with him in the studio, we know you’ll love it!

Spotlight Artist: Mac Davis


Howdy Folks!

Hope things are warming up in your neck of the woods! It’s just starting to show signs of spring here in Nashville. We’ve been thawing out and dusting off some of our older records… and while we were doing just that, we remembered how much we love Mac Davis. So… he’s in our spotlight this week on the show!

Surely you remember his hit single “Baby, Don’t Get Hooked On Me.” It was EVERYWHERE in 1972. But… did you know that he also wrote several hit songs for Elvis, among many others? And who can forget his 1981 solo hit, “You’re My Bestest Friend”? All of these great songs, and MORE are on our playlist this week, so don’t miss out!

It Takes Two: Classic Country Duets


Duets are a Country Music staple, and this week we’ve rounded up some of the best for your listening pleasure. Sure, most of these artists were stars in their own right… BUT when they joined forces with their duet partner… they were unstoppable. Sometimes, it just takes two!

Several artists had their preferred duet partners… Dolly and Porter, Johnny and June, Conway and Loretta… and others didn’t mind singing with a handful of different people. We know all of George (Jones)’s songs with Tammy Wynette, but he also had a hit with Melba Montgomery on “…Out Of Our Minds”.
