When I find music that is good and special, I want to expose everyone to it

“I just play along with people. I am a lucky man. Nashville is an amazing city and every day someone really great is moving to town. Keep your eyes and heart open and you run into people who really move you and one person leads to another person. I like being exposed to new music writers. When I was a kid and getting into music, I looked at the record to see who wrote the songs and who played on it. I went on a chase to find everything they did. Donnie Fritz, Dan Penn, Dallas Frazier, and the Grateful Dead.”

“In Nashville, it is so dense and intense. When I find music that is good and special, I love to expose everyone to it. I am the executive music producer for a TV show on ABC and that entails listening to a lot of music. I think listening to bad music is bad for your soul. When I find something that is great, I get excited and want to hear more and more and more. There is a lot of that in Nashville and we cut songs by writers who don’t have other outlets. We expose some great writers whose songs need to be heard.”

  1. Walking down the hallway to the Bliss Ultra Lounge where Buddy Miller was about to record Jill Andrews and Lucinda Williams I pitched a David Olney song to him. Told him that “If It Wasn’t For the Wind” would be a perfect song for the TV series “Nashville.” Then he stopped in his tracks and told me he had already tried to pitch that and thanked me for reminding him because he was going to try again. Buddy doesn’t just talk the talk he walks it.

      I hope the song makes it in.
