Last week, Jon and I interviewed Jake Owen and as always it was a blast!! Jake is one of the most positive, humble and down to earth country artists in the business today.

I always thought that the songwriter must know me somehow. It turns out that the writers are Jason Matthews and Kerry Kurt Phillips and that our paths have never crossed until last Friday morning.

One of the great perks of being in this business is our contact with the artists. I have been doing this for about 30 years, Leslie and Eric have been doing this long enough to get to know a lot of artists and performers, most of whom are very nice and professional and occasionally, we might wind up with a long term friendship with a particular artist.
