Americana Music Pt. 2

Season 2 Episode 28

Artist, Songwriter, & Author-Listen Now

Radney Foster stopped by the Attic to chat about his latest project, For You To See The Stars.  A collection of short stories that is partnered with an album by the same title that explores the vast capabilities of a true American story teller.  Radney assures us that he isn’t a spy, even though he writes from ones perspective in his book, but it wouldn’t surprise me.  The man has done it all.  He has written eight number one singles including, "Nobody Wins,” and “Crazy Over You as a member of the country duo Foster & Lloyd.  He has countless cuts by an array of different artists like Keith Urban, The Dixie Chicks, Luke Bryan, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Hootie & The Blowfish, and Kenny Loggins to name a few.  Then if that’s not enough he’s now a seasoned actor appearing in the “Troubadour” and the upcoming film, Beauty Mark.  If you could summarize Radney in one word, I would have to say storyteller.  We talk about his journey from Texas to Nashville, to his conversation with Willie Nelson, to landing his publishing deal, then the success of Foster & Lloyd.  We get to hear some of the new music from For You To See The Stars, and we dive in to the inspirations of the book.  Buy the book everywhere books are sold including Amazon, and stream/download the new record on iTunes and Spotify.  Visit www.radneyfoster.com for everything Radney, and you can follow him on Instagram.  Thanks again to Fat Bottom Brewing for supplying the laughs in this one!
