You Can't Make This Stuff Up


  Do you find yourself watching the TV show "Nashville" and wondering how true-to-life it is? Well, the  real music business is just as crazy as the TV version.  

Here's a story about royalty checks that should be delivered by armoured truck...#1 songwriters who are broke...exes that think your songs are about them...and more.  It's a podcast recorded in October 2014, when my cowriters Emily Shackelton & Phil Barton joined me during a Canadian tour to spend an afternoon talking with radio DJ Mike McGuire for his "Mike on a Monday" podcast. It's a fun listen and a humourous, candid look behind the scenes at the real Nashville music biz.
