17. Lori McKenna: Taking the Leap + Going for Your Dreams
1 hr 5 min

As one of the industry’s most in-demand songwriters, today’s guest - Lori McKenna - has written songs for country music’s top artists including Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, and Little Big Town - just to name a few!

You might know her as the writer behind Stealing Kisses (Faith Hill), Humble and Kind (Tim McGraw), and Girl Crush (Little Big Town)! AND she is the brains behind the Living with Landyn podcast theme song- All The Things!

As a wife, mother of 5, and Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, Lori is no stranger to trying to strike the balance between being present in the moment and reaching for the stars! And, on today’s episode Landyn and Lori cover a lot of ground!

From selling tupperware to pay the bills, to Lori’s first open mic night in Boston, to becoming a legendary songwriter - Lori’s story is full of inspiration, hard work, and chasing dreams.

Landyn and Lori also open up about motherhood and the struggles of ‘letting go’ as your children get older; the value of friendships and finding your tribe; and, the importance of putting your family first.

This episode will have you hanging on to every last word with some songwriting behind the scenes stories, will inspire you to take chances, and may even leave you with a few new recipes in your back-pocket!

3. Todrick Hall Talks Fave Disney Movies
Y'ALL. Todrick Hall stopped by the podcast and made all of my Disney wall dreams come true (trust me, it will make sense when you listen). We go DEEP on some of our favorites in this one, including the best Disney princess, the coolest 90s Disney flicks, plus Todrick makes a difficult choice between two of his favorite Pixar films.

We were tired of all the health and fitness apps that made us feel worse about ourselves, that featured trainers who didn't look like us or talk like us (hello, drill sergeant much?), or that assumed we had hundreds of dollars to spend on trendy equipment in order to make their workouts actually, well, work.
