A young child says to his mother, “Mom, when I grow up I’d like to be a musician.” She replies, “Well honey, you know you can’t do both.”
It’s a voting week! We decide who had the best album for July, and we also submit our albums for August. Robbie throws out an amazing Could Have Been a Classic. Jason adds more vinyl to his collection and Trey finally phones it in. It’s a good one y’all.
In this bonus episode of Audible Discernment, we head to beautiful downtown Thomasville to speak with the owner of The Bookshelf and cohost of From the Front Porch, Annie B. Jones. She is joined by her Bright Eyes loving cohost Chris as we discuss all things podcasting, books, and music.
It’s time to vote for June & submit for July! The boys do this one in one take while rolling down the road. Robbie’s in the driver seat (sorry!), Jason’s holding the mic (sorrier!), but Trey’s finally back (sorriest!) We also touch on Jason’s bluegrass background, creating another wide-but-white palette of music; Robbie makes an off-hand Eddie Vedder joke, and Trey brings up the rear literally & figuratively.
