Phil Vassar – 03.18.15
In town for a show at the Genesee Theatre, Phil called me this morning to chat about life at his house with a teenager, why he’s taken his time putting together 30 songs for a new album, the one place he’d like to go back on vacation & much more:
Lee Brice & Jerrod Niemann – 02.09.14
Lee called to chat about our #WindyCitySmokeout lineup announcement, but he was almost an hour late (!) due to no-cell-reception at Jerrod’s cabin in rural Tennessee.
Both guys called me from the truck to chat about the summer ahead, the Grammys and more – lots of laughs!
LeAnn Rimes – 12.18.14
LeAnn is in town for her Arcada Theatre Christmas show tonight, and she buzzed me at lunchtime to chat about her new Christmas albums, her holiday shopping, her bucket list for 2015 & much more!
Kacey Musgraves – 09.25.14
Kacey called me on the Diner to chat about her unique style of music, her Loretta Lynn redneck moment, her last purchase online that’s *just* a bit embarrassing (and funny!), plus much more:
Lee Brice – 09.09.14
Easton hung with me on the Diner, as his new album “I Don’t Dance” was released today. Love his honesty in true redneck fashion, enjoy our chat!
Easton Corbin – 08.13.14
Easton checked in on the Diner, as he’s getting ready to perform for White Sox Country Night on Friday night. Turns out he’s actually nervous about it!
Randy Houser – 07.18.14
Randy surprised me on the Diner, calling with only 30 minutes’ notice to chat about adding a 2nd show in September, the answer to a “really good … a really good question”, and lots of laughs too!
Brett Eldredge – 07.11.14
Brett joined me in-studio during the Diner to chat about life, where he heard his new song “Mean To Me” first, who he’s digging in concert lately & much more!
Trisha Yearwood – 02.26.14
Trisha called me during the Diner to chat about life on the farm, how her cooking TV show career was an accident, and much more. Her laugh is infectious! Enjoy:
Brantley Gilbert – 02.13.14
Brantley joined me in Studio 99-5 for a quick chat on life and managed to slip a few Chicago scoops our way!
Eli Young Band - 02.03.14
The guys called from the beaches of Punta Cana, after they took a planeload of fans down south for a weekend of Super Bowl football, sun & great country music. They sound miserable there, truly!
Phil Vassar – 01.17.14
In anticipation of another sold-out Joe’s Bar show that night, I convince Phil to have a scavenger hunt across Chicagoland for a pair of tickets and backstage passes … always love picking up Phil’s phone call!
