She writes about the country music scene mostly--her work has been featured in No Depression, Variety, USA Today, Taste of Country, Sounds Like Nashville just to name a few. She joins Eric and Craig this week to talk country music, including artists returning to the road, the 2021 festival scene, and the uncertain future for independent venues. They also discussed some new and emerging artists in Nashville plus Alan Jackson and Randy Travis weighing in on the age old question--What is or is not country music anyway? Cillea provide some new perspectives and a breath of fresh--don't miss this one!
In Chapter Two, Eric & Craig talk about Rob Zombie's new project (a much anticipated Munsters reboot), The Floyd Mayweather, Logan Paul exhibition fight, The latest Roger Waters, David Gilmour feud, and baseball.
