Margeritas, The Mavericks & Mono


Grammy award winning band The Mavericks celebrated the release of their new album “Mono” over margaritas in Nashville. Yallwire was there as the group played a few songs of the highly anticipated release. Host Stephanie Langston talked to the guys about recording the album in mono, the key to the bands comradery and where they are looking forward to the most before heading out on their international MONO MUNDO TOUR 2015.

Building 429 talks touring, music and signing toilet seats!

Building 429 sat down with Yallwire before hitting the road for the ‘United We Stand’ tour. The guys talk with me about reinventing their performances for the tour, the strangest thing they have ever signed for a fan, and why ‘We Won’t Be Shaken’ is their most focused album yet.

One-on-one with “Nashville’s” Sam Palladio & Josh Doyle at 3rd and Lindsley

Englishmen Sam Palladio & Josh Doyle played to a sold out crowd at 3rd & Lindsley and Yallwire was there. The two chatted with me backstage. I find out why they have walked similar career paths. Sam also fills us in on the heated “Nashville” drama and how he just wrapped filming “Runner, Runner,” opposite Justin Timberlake, Ben Affleck and Gemma Arterton.

Meanwhile, Josh, formerly of the Dum Dums, is gearing up to hit the road as the winner of Guitar Center’s first Singer-Songwriter competition. The prize put Josh back in the studio and resulted in his first full-length album, including the hit single “Solarstorms.” These two are certainly artists to watch in 2013!

Catching up with The Mavericks

Grammy-winning vocal group The Mavericks announce the release of ‘In Time,’ their first album in seven years and their first for The Valory Music Co. I caught up with the guys for Yallwire as they played a special show at 3rd and Lindsley in Nashville. The band talks about the project that coincides with the 20th anniversary of their debut album, “Come Unto Me” being featured on the television show Nashville, and their upcoming travels.

King & Country wrap up first headline tour

Australian duo King and Country wrapped up their first headlining tour with a show in Franklin, TN and Yallwire was there to catch all of the action. I caught up with the brothers to talk about why it is the most intense show of the tour, how their shows are a family affair, shooting a music video for “The Proof Of Your Love,” and how you can see them on the road now for their Christmas tour.

Jason Castro one-on-one

Jason Castro is gearing up to release his first full-length Word
Records album, Only A Mountain. The former American Idol contestant sat down with me to talk about rejoicing alongside a broad new audience of fellow believers. The project, he says, is kind of a breakthrough and “feels like this veil has been lifted.”

Raised in the church by a musical family of Colombian descent, Castro talks about his Christmas traditions that he now shares with his wife and baby. We also chat about the upcoming winter jam tour, Christian Music’s largest annual tour.

Only A Mountain is set to be released January 15th.

Staind’s Aaron Lewis talks country

Staind‘s Aaron Lewis is the voice behind the most-played rock song of the past decade (“It’s Been Awhile”), but he’s still squeezing in time for his country roots. Aaron sat down with me in Nashville for Yallwire to talk about his highly anticipated album, ‘The Road.’ Hear all about which rocker played a roll in reviving his love of classic country, what it’s like balancing his country career with a rock band, and get a sneak peak behind-the-scenes of his latest music video “Forever.”

Steve Martin, Sam Bush, Del McCoury & more highlights from the IBMA Awards

Yallwire takes you to the 23rd annual International Bluegrass Music Awards at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, where the Gibson Brothers took home the “Entertainer of the Year” award. Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice was another big winner of the night, winning “Album of the Year” and “Single of the Year.” Del McCoury and Laurie Lewis hosted the event, that wrapped up with an all-star finale tribute to late banjo legend Earl Scruggs, led by last year’s “Entertainer of the Year” recipient Steve Martin. I caught up with some of the nights biggest entertainers on the red carpet for Yallwire. Check it out!
